ProMat and Automate to Collocate in 2013
The Material Handling Industry of America (MHIA) and the Automation Technologies Council (ATC) announced that the Automate Show and Conference will collocate again with ProMat in 2013. Both exhibitions will be held January 21-24, 2013, at McCormick Place in Chicago.
“The decision to collocate ProMat 2013 and Automate 2013 was an easy one after the successful collocation of these events in 2011,” says George Prest, chief operating officer for MHIA. “The collocation of Automate with ProMat 2013 will allow manufacturing, distribution and supply chain professionals unparalleled education and networking opportunities as well as exposure to the largest equipment and technology display of any show of its kind in North America.”
The collocated ProMat 2013 and Automate 2013 will be the largest international event and conference of its kind ever held in the U.S. More than 825 exhibitors will showcase their solutions to about 30,000 professionals from more than 100 countries in industries such as warehousing/distribution, automotive, alternative energy, consumer goods, defense, food and beverage, electronics, lab automation, medical, pharmaceutical, plastics, printing, security, semiconductors and more.
