SHD Logistics is delighted to announce that London’s British Museum has been confirmed as the venue for the SHD Logistics Conference on 14th May 2019.
This historic venue was host to the SHD Logistics Spring Conference 2018, with Alex Harvey, head of robotics and automation at Ocado and Amazon’s Prajvin Prakash from the Warrington Fulfilment Centre both keynoting.
The British Museum was founded in 1753, the first national public museum in the world. From the beginning it granted free admission to all 'studious and curious persons'. Visitor numbers have grown from around 5,000 a year in the eighteenth century to nearly 6 million today.
The origins of the British Museum lie in the will of the physician, naturalist and collector, Sir Hans Sloane (1660–1753).
Over his lifetime, Sloane collected more than 71,000 objects which he wanted to be preserved intact after his death. During the beginning of the twenty-first century, the Museum has continued to expand its public facilities.
Prologis UK sustainability officer Simon Cox was the first speaker to be announced for this May’s SHD Logistics Conference, to be held at London’s British Museum, themed Transforming Logistics Through Technology.
The SHD Logistics Conference will be held on Tuesday 14th May, with delegate passes available at an earlybird rate of £245 plus VAT. Visit www.logisticsconference.co.uk for details.
