With today’s fast paced environment with industry trends, evolving technology, it may be difficult to keep up with changes taking place in the Baggage Handling Industry. On July 14, 2022, IABSC held an OEM showcase from all areas of the BHS world. The showcase allowed attendees to visit numerous tables showcasing products from conveyor, motor and drive and component manufactures and gave them an opportunity to have meaningful dialogue on various topics.
We had a full house of Manufacturers showcasing their latest technology. The list below was aimed at assisting attendees on who they would like to speak with a goal of touching all aspects of the BHS industry.
