Agility Appointed to Handle Futurebuild 2019 in London
Official freight and on-site handler for leading “built environment” event
LONDON – September 27, 2018 – Agility, a leading global logistics provider, has been appointed as the official freight and on-site handling contractor for Futurebuild 2019, the leading event for “built environment” industries that include construction, engineering, architecture, design, planning, materials, landscaping and sustainment.
Held annually at ExCeL London, Futurebuild showcases the latest built environment ideas and technology and is expected to draw more than 26,500 senior decision makers and other visitors. Agility will provide full global exhibition freight and on site services including; freight forwarding; pre- and post-show warehouse handling; and forklift and heavy lift operations.
Martin Hurn, Managing Director of Futurebuild Events, said: “Agility has a proven track record of supporting the delivery of some of the world’s leading events and exhibitions, and its expertise will be a huge benefit to our exhibitors and visitors in making sure the event runs smoothly. As Agility is onsite at ExCeL, we’re able to significantly reduce road freight in the run up to Futurebuild 2019. This also means we can make use of vast storage space, and maximize re-use of exhibition materials in future events.”
Garcia Newell, Business Development Director for Agility Fairs & Events UK, said: “Our extensive experience working at ExCeL London, as well as our onsite facilities, will help Agility provide seamless services to both Futurebuild Events and their exhibitors.”
