From 9th to 12th May, the Spanish Movers Federation (FEDEM) will be holding its 9th Congress in the Valencia Conference Centre

This meeting, which will be mainly held in the venue’s multi-purpose rooms, will be discussing the future of the sector and taking stock of its key activities in recent years. Over 200 people will be attending this national event to get first-hand information about the new trends and strategies that have improved removal services. During the four days of the Congress, companies will also be able to exchange their experiences and outline the main challenges they face. 

Some of the subjects covered in the presentations will be online marketing, GPS fleet tracking, the second chance act, family business succession, reverse logistics, and lorries that run on gas. There will also be a round table that will deal with the role of women in the sector, the future of mobility and the challenge of local level distribution in cities. In parallel to the Congress, the organisation has prepared a guided tour of the most emblematic places in Valencia for those accompanying the delegates, and they will also be introduced to typical Valencian cuisine.

In addition, the Congress organisers have chosen to co-operate with the Casa de la Caridad de València and have offered all attendees the chance to take part in this initiative. Thus, when registering for the congress, a voluntary contribution of €20 will be added, and the total amount collected will be donated to a representative from this organisation during the event.

FEDEM, which has more than 160 members in 37 provinces, is the main association for companies involved in removals, storage and warehousing in Spain. The main activities of FEDEM’s member companies are domestic and international removals, the distribution of new furniture, moving artworks, removals using containers and storage in furniture warehouses. FEDEM also belongs to CETM as well as to the European Movers Federation (FEDEMAC). The previous National Movers Congress was held in Salamanca.
