The event organiser of The Society for Cardiothoracic Surgery has appointed Europa Showfreight to help deliver its annual conference.

Europa Showfreight, a division of £100 million turnover independent logistics business Europa Worldwide Group, as the sole forwarder for the event that is taking place from March 12-14 at Belfast Waterfront. The Europa team will be responsible for transporting and handling the cargo.

Europa Showfreight’s manager, Jeff Broom, said: “We were appointed as sole official on site forwarder for this event for SCTS due to a glowing referral from the event manager on a previous medical exhibition. We’ve developed a very strong reputation for our specific logistics services and for our support for organisers, exhibitors and contractors at medical events. As a result we’re getting regular bookings for events such as this one.

“Medical events are unique in that the equipment on show is of very high value and is both intricately manufactured and finely tuned whilst also being bulky – so it requires extra careful handling. Each venue is different, so successfully managing the delivery and installation of goods and equipment relies on our ability to offer bespoke and tailored services to the organisers and contractors.”
