Dubai, UAE: Messe Frankfurt Middle East, the organisers of Logimotion, a pioneering new event for the international logistics industry, held an advisory board meeting last week to outline the key priorities for the upcoming event, which will take place from 10 – 12 December at the Dubai World Trade Centre.

According to research, Dubai’s logistics industry is a significant and fast-growing sector of the UAE economy. Data from Mordor Intelligence has revealed it is forecast to be worth US$31.41 billion by 2026, up from US$19.65 billion in 2020, representing a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 8.41%. Adding to the country’s central position in the sector, the Government’s Dubai Silk Road Strategy aims to position the UAE and Dubai, more specifically, as a critical global trade and logistics hub along the historic Silk Road trade route, which connects Asia, Europe, and Africa.

Set to redefine the global logistics and mobility landscape, Logimotion is the first event of its kind and will coincide with Automechanika Dubai. The main features of the event include the Global Trade and Infrastructure Summit (GTIS) on the exhibition’s main stage that will address the complexities of global trade dynamics and the crucial role of infrastructure in the seamless movement of goods and people.

SCALEX will showcase supply chain excellence with keynote discussions from global industry experts, covering global supply chain networks and geopolitical influences on trade and logistics. The TransMobility Forum (TMF) will round out the event’s key forums, exploring the latest trends, challenges, and innovations in the transportation and mobility sector, focusing on integrated transport networks, smart cities, sustainable urban mobility, autonomous and Electric Vehicle (EV) ecosystems.
