The First Ever 2012 MODEX Expo was a Success!
MHIA recently released this article about the Inaugural Show:
"As an indicator of the continued economic recovery of the manufacturing and supply chain industries, U.S. and international attendees registered in large numbers for the inaugural MODEX expo held February 6-9 in Atlanta's Georgia World Congress Center. The expo is sponsored by the Material Handling Industry of America (MHIA) and is designed to showcase equipment and systems solutions as well as learning opportunities that span the entire supply chain, from material handling to logistics across manufacturing, assembly and distribution.
Nearly 20,000 key decision-makers in virtually all manufacturing, logistics, distribution and supply chain industries participated in MODEX 2012. The expo featured the solutions of 586 exhibitors covering 180,000 net square feet. Reflecting the global nature of the expo, 96 countries and six continents were represented at this year's MODEX . They were welcomed by MODEX's International Visitors Center."
