The digital era has arrived, and supply chains must adjust. The season’s biggest material handling and logistics event, ProMat, is aiming to help.
This year’s conference will include more than 130 educational sessions — bringing together leading industry experts to share the latest information on manufacturing and supply chain trends, technologies and innovations.
Nearly 1,000 exhibitors from industry, commerce and government will display their supply chain solutions — from traditional, manual equipment to computerized, automated systems and emerging technologies — for attendees to see all segments of logistics equipment and technology in action.
The event, sponsored by material handling and supply chain association MHI, will be held April 8 to 11 at Chicago's McCormick Place.
Keynotes focusing on leading trends, best practices and what's next in best-in-class solutions promise to give attendees actionable insights into making their entire supply chains work more efficiently and profitably.
