AMHSA events are generally booked online through the AMHSA Event Booking site.


Upcoming Events - On-Line

We are pleased to announce that over the course of the next couple of months we shall be endeavouring to deliver a fuller calendar of events on-line, whilst we are unable to meet in a physical setting. These events will include training sessions, our AGM & Members Meeting and some webinar forums hosted by some familiar faces from around the industry.

We are really excited and we hope you will be able to join the sessions and will find them interesting and extremely useful. Please see below for further details.

Online Training Workshop #1 – Containers & ASRS

Stay ahead in this ever-advancing industry and learn how the continuing need for automation and automation development is being driven by social, financial, political, legal and technological factors in a constantly adapting global market.

Each session will feature an informative presentation from AMHSA Secretary, Dave Berridge, and conclude with a discussion / question and answer session.

Workshop 1 Agenda

  • Introduction / Overview of sessions
  • Containers and Storage
  • Auto Storage Systems

The talks are aimed to appeal to the widest possible audience, so whether you are a newcomer to the industry or you have a vast wealth of experience, there should be something new for everybody to learn or glean from each session.


Future Events

The current Public Health situation presents us with extremely difficult operational problems. As a result, and in line with government advice in relation to the Covid-19 Pandemic we have, sadly, had to postpone or cancel many events. However, many of our sessions have moved online using appropriate technology for group discussions.  We continue to assess the situation and will continue to heed the best scientific and governmental advice and aim to return to physically attended (possibly with some social distancing guidelines) events in the new year, when safe to do so. We hope to include

  • AMHSA AGM & Members’ Meeting
  • Site Meetings (adhering appropriate guidelines)

We hope that we will be able to return to a more normalised Calendar of Events as soon as possible, when we shall be able to meet in a physical venue. Until then we will be working hard to ensure that we continue to deliver an appropriate and meaningful programme of events.

More details will follow in due course. Please keep a watchful eye on our website for more information.

We are currently planning further sessions in our Online Training series and these will include

#2 – Transport & Ancillary Devices

#3 – Picking & Sortation

#4 – Warehouse Management & Control Systems

#5 – Distribution Centre Design


Previous Events

AMHSA recently held their previously postponed AGM & Members’ Meeting online. Whilst disappointing that we were unable to meet, physically, we made the most of being able to share information and details about the association and the operating environment in which we all currently find ourselves. We heard from the secretariat team and the association secretary and president. We also heard from Rob Fisher with an update about IMHX 2021 and the efforts being made by Informa Markets to make all of their exhibitions Covid safe going forward. Their was an update about the negotiations between IMHX and AMHSA in relation to the fantastic discounts that AMHSA members who are exhibiting will receive and some of the new innovative services that Informa intend to share with exhibitors to ensure a safe, smooth and successful show.

We recently held our Legal Training Workshop online. The Model Form of Contract MF / 1 Training was once again delivered by Tony Ventrella who has been instrumental in the preparation and continued development of the contract and who has a wealth of knowledge, experience and expertise. Delegates have indicated that the event was extremely valuable and that they were glad to have been part of the session. What’s more, the training was accredited with 5 hours / points of CPD.
