Logistics giant Agility is recognising the need to digitize event logistics by teaming up with UnaBiz, an end-to-end Internet of Things (IoT) solutions company.

The partnership will identify the logistical challenges and needs of the events industry by way of IoT tracking solutions.

To ensure safe movement of fine art and valuable features for galleries and museums, Agility Fairs & Events will deploy a range of UnaBiz-designed sensors and trackers with built-in environmental monitoring capabilities that provide readings on humidity and temperature.

“The value of IoT in event logistics lies in real-time alerts and data,” said Priscilla Leong, COO of Agility Fairs & Events.

“When we collect data on the movement of a customer’s assets around the world, we will be able to better plan and predict the manpower and storage requirements at their facilities. We will also get more accurate estimates of exhibits’ arrival time, which is valuable to organizers and exhibitors alike.”

Agility Fairs & Events is responsible for handling more than 8,000 trade fairs, exhibitions and events annually, and providing end-to-end fine art logistics with a global network of art-handling partners.

“We work on indoor and outdoor events, in remote areas and in connected areas, and we manage assets of shows around the world, in large-scale exhibition arenas that can span hundreds of thousands square meters with thousands of exhibits,” added Leong.
