FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE – LOS ANGELES, April 28, 2020, — SDI, a leading provider of materials handling systems and technology solutions to the retail, wholesale, fulfillment and e-commerce industries, will cancel its annual SDI Executive Logistics Forum in February 2021.

In its 13th year, this two-day Forum has been hugely successful. It’s an event that Materials Handling and Logistics leaders from all over the globe look forward to attending. Unfortunately, with the advent of COVID-19, several uncertainties make it difficult to proceed with planning of SELF21.

The current situation poses difficulties with possible travel restrictions, safety and securing different venues.

“It is too difficult to put an event of such magnitude, when so many things are uncertain,” Krish Nathan, CEO, said “Safety is our main concern and we prefer being overly cautious, even if it’s at the expense of our biggest event of the year.”

SDI plans of resuming SELF in Las Vegas, Nevada, in 2022.

“We have committed to being at ProMat 2021 and we will keep that commitment,” Nathan added. “Perhaps we will organize events around it and try and recreate some of that fun atmosphere.”

Don’t forget to stop by SDI’s ProMat booth S3812.
