The premier material handling and logistics event in North and South America, ProMat 2011, is returning to Chicago's McCormick Place South on March 21-24, 2011.
ProMat 2011 returns to Chicago's McCormick Place South March 21 to 24, 2011. The show is sponsored by the Material Handling Industry of America (MHIA) and brings together manufacturers, consultants, third-party logistics providers, publishers and systems integrators to demonstrate their equipment, systems and services to manufacturing, warehousing and distribution professionals from more than 100 countries around the globe.
"We are committed to making ProMat 2011 an exceptional event where our association members and show attendees can come together to see what's new in our industry, discover the leading trends for industrial productivity, and foster strong business relationships,” notes John Nofsinger, CEO for MHIA.
ProMat 2011 is said to be the largest international material handling and logistics show and conference held in the U.S. in 2011. More than 700 exhibitors are expected to showcase their solutions on the 300,000 net sq-ft show floor. Exhibits will represent all segments of the material handling and logistics industry, from traditional, manual equipment to computerized, automated systems. To make it easier for attendees to find the solutions they need, the ProMat show floor will be divided into solution-specific sections: manufacturing and assembly solutions, fulfillment and delivery solutions, and information technology (IT) solutions.
Included again is an International Buyer Program that provides matchmaker services for interested buyers and sellers through an International Business Center located in the show hall. In addition, an educational conference will showcase a keynote and show floor educational sessions covering various aspects of material handling and logistics. All are free to ProMat participants. ProMat 2011 will also feature a comprehensive virtual event at www.ProMatShow.com.
