Trade Show Report: Retail Technology Show 2022

Trade Show Report: Retail Technology Show 2022

Hoisted as the "New flagship event for retail technology", this event certainly set our expectations at a pretty high level.  The Retail Technology Show was held in London, UK at the Olympia trade show complex (currently undergoing refurbishment) on April 26-27, 2022.   Due to meetings, etc. we could only spare 3 hours for the show and we were on the small queue to get into the show at 8.45am. Having gone through bag check we were held at the bottom of the stairs with a refreshing countdown to opening. It took us one hour and a bit to walk through the show,...

MODEX 2022 Review If you are active in warehouse automation and material handling, Modex [website] (and its sister show, ProMAT) is the main trade show. Modex 2022 did not disappoint and was super busy with around 800 exhibitors. The Atlanta Georgia World Congress Center did not have huge Modex banners on the outside notifying everyone of where to go and what is happening.

Modex 2022 Most Talked About: Opex Infinity

Modex 2022 Most Talked About: Opex Infinity

Modex - "Most Talked About" Prize STIQ's "Most Talked About" at Modex prize went to Opex for their new Infinity system. Our principal consultant received more inquiries "What do you think of Opex Infinity" than for any other exhibitor, system, etc. and hence took the top slot in the "Most Talked About" category at the 2022 Modex show. Here's a video we took of the solution There are several parts of this solution that are simply genius. The Opex engineers have adapted some of their Sure Pick solution and added bits and pieces of new stuff. Super exciting to see more mASRS or ASRS...
