Ready to connect at MODEX

When MODEX returns to Atlanta on 28 March, it will include more than 850 exhibits from leading solution providers and a comprehensive Educational Conference of over 150 sessions focusing on best-in-class solutions for manufacturing and supply chain operations. Exhibits at MODEX 2022 will represent all segments of the material handling, logistics and transportation industry, from traditional, manual equipment to computerised, automated systems and smart, connected supply chain technologies.

“Exhibitors and attendees alike are eager to return to conducting business and experiencing the latest equipment, technology and solutions in-person,” says John Paxton, CEO of MHI. “There is no substitute for events like MODEX where you can see the solutions in-action on the show floor, learn about them in educational sessions and speak to the leading firms and innovators at one location to get answers specific to your operations. We are excited to provide this market access and knowledge opportunity for our entire community.”

“Our industry’s essential role over the last 18 months brought a focus to the role of supply chain solutions in the overall global economy,” says Daniel McKinnon, EVP of Exhibitions, MHI. “Seeing the large array of solutions, meeting with leading suppliers and connecting with peers will allow attendees the opportunity to discover solutions that will be essential for their success in the future.”

In addition to the exhibits, the MODEX Conference will include four keynotes and over 150 show floor educational seminars.

MHI will preview the 2022 Annual Industry Report-Evolution to Revolution-Building the supply chains of tomorrow during the 30 March keynote.
