The 20th edition of the Mediterranean Logistics and Transport Week (MedaLogistics Week), the great regional logistics event, will take place in Barcelona on 5 and 6 June 2024 within the framework of the sector's largest trade fair in the Mediterranean region, which is the International Logistics Exhibition (SIL) in the Catalan capital, celebrating its 24th edition from 5 to 7 June. 

The Mediterranean region, strategically located between Asia, Europe and Africa, is a key player in the global supply chain and will play a major role during these days.

MedaLogistics Week Barcelona, the summit of the three continents, is an annual meeting that will bring together more than 400 business and government representatives from Europe, Africa and the entire Mediterranean world to explore opportunities for expansion and investment in the transport and logistics sector.  

The main objective of this summit is to provide a stimulating environment for entrepreneurs and professionals from various fields to reflect, inform, meet, network and engage in a productive debate on growth strategies and the main challenges facing the sector. A unique opportunity to make business connections and understand the changing trends across the sector. 

According to the organisers, it is "a transformative event, where the past, present and future of the logistics industry converge in a symphony of innovation".  

MedaLogistics Week Barcelona will address important issues such as the present and future of logistics in the Mediterranean, the analysis of Saudi Arabia's logistics sector strategy, the importance of the Barcelona Free Trade Zone Consortium as an inspiration for positive change, the emerging triangle of cooperation between Europe, Asia and Africa, digital transformation in logistics, gender equality in the sector and the role of Mediterranean logistics start-ups as players that make a difference.  

For its part, the next edition of SIL in 2024, which includes MedaLogistics Week Barcelona, is presented with many new features and a full programme of presentations, events, conferences and innovations.  

The last edition of SIL in 2023 was special because it commemorated the 25th anniversary of the fair. Throughout these 25 years, it has established itself as the leading trade fair for logistics, transport, intralogistics and supply chain in the Mediterranean and the Atlantic. 

Last year's edition saw 15,215 attendees from 91 different countries, 400 speakers, more than 650 participating companies, more than 250 business events, more than 3,000 people attending the Congress in person and 8,317 networking contacts. These figures are expected to be exceeded by 2024 thanks to existing expectations.
