Marengo, Illinois – Due to the tremendous success of its first summit, UniCarriers Americas Corporation (UCA) plans to host the second Forklift Industry Summit from May 11-14, 2020, at the Gaylord Opryland Resort and Convention Center.

The 2020 event will include an opening general session, a product workshop, an exclusive exhibition floor, breakout sessions and more.

With an estimated attendance of over 300 professionals, the event brings together dealers, aftermarket suppliers and industry experts for a chance to network and learn about changes and advancements in the material handling industry. The summit officially kicks off on May 12 with remarks from UCA executives, who will discuss corporate and industry updates.

In addition to keynote presentations from dealers and industry experts who will bring unique insight into the forklift industry, suppliers and dealers can take advantage of information-sharing opportunities during breakout panels and sessions.

“We experienced great success with our first Forklift Industry Summit, so it was an easy decision to host an event of this magnitude again,” said Mark Manninen, vice-president of sales and marketing for UCA. “The Summit allows everyone to congregate, gain and share industry knowledge and explore and establish new partnerships, something we all feel is part of our DNA at UniCarriers.”

Day two offers a powerhouse agenda starting with a tradeshow, giving dealers a chance to watch product demos, learn from supplier experts and see some of the latest innovations. And to round out the day, an exclusive product workshop will provide dealers a first-hand look at UCA equipment with an informative session for each product.
