The ITT Hub is more than an exhibition. Logistics UK will be delivering a comprehensive conference programme over both days of the event. Structured around four key themes, sessions will be delivered by thought leaders, innovators and experts representing a wide range of businesses and stakeholders.

 

ITT Hub has announced new dates of 30th June - 1st July 2021 at Farnborough International Exhibition and Conference Centre.

 

With government guidelines stating that no large-scale live events can take place until at least April 2021, the organisers have taken an opportunity presented by the venue to move the event deeper into the summer.

Conference programme at a glance

Day 1

  • Keynote: Tim Peake

Tim Peake was the first British astronaut to visit the International Space Station, where his work during Mission Principia inspired millions about the possibilities which space could offer.  A former test pilot, he is also a STEM ambassador, schools’ speaker and best-selling author.

His keynote speech will kick off two days of debate and discussions at ITT Hub 2021.

 

“I am thrilled to be speaking at next year’s FTA [now Logistics UK] Future Logistics Conference, to engage with key businesses across the logistics sector and identify areas where inspiration could provide solutions for 21st century challenges.

I am also looking forward to experiencing first-hand the wide range of new options for logistics which the ITT Hub will have on show – and possibly even seeing what it’s like to experience an autonomous vehicle.  60 years ago, man had not even set foot on the moon, but the boundaries of what’s possible have been expanded, and I look forward to challenging visitors at next year’s conference to push their horizons and help to shape the industry of tomorrow.”

Day 2

  • Public sector support: what help does industry need from government to achieve net zero?

The business models of leading businesses have traditionally been built around speed, reliability, customer service and shaving margins. But what business models will be essential in our net-zero future? Will companies need to redesign their strategies and innovate to survive?

 

  • How to fund the future: strategies for finance, investment, risks and opportunities

There are many options for new vehicles being developed, particularly around alternative fuels. This practical session will look at what you need to factor into your decision making before you procure the next set of vehicles that is right for your operation.

 

  • Passenger Transport - Future Vehicles and Future Fuels

Whilst new electric vans are emerging on to the market there are significant operational challenges around payload, infrastructure and cost. What path should you be taking on the road to electric vans, and is electric the right path for your company? This practical session will look at what you need to factor into your decision making before you procure the next set of vehicles that is right for your operation.

 

  • What’s the reality of autonomous vehicles and what’s the business model?

If autonomous vehicles are to be adopted in the commercial sector, they need to be safe, reliable, low cost, fit into a complex supply chain, and be liked by customers.
