The ProMat 2013 exhibit spacedraw, held November 10 in Chicago, attracted 388 exhibitors who reserved a first-day record of 230,000 net square feet of show floor space at the Industry’s premier U.S. event. This record amount of space reserved is a clear message that the material handling and logistics industry is healthy and growing. Hyster and Yale selected the first booths of the draw.

“The success of the ProMat exhibit spacedraw is a clear indicator that material handling, supply chain and logistics solution providers are seeing positive economic change and bodes very well for both ProMat 2013 and our industry,” according to George W. Prest, Chief Operating Officer of Material Handling Industry of America (MHIA).

ProMat 2013, sponsored by MHIA, will be the most comprehensive international material handling, supply chain and logistics show and conference held in the U.S. in 2013. ProMat 2013 will showcase the solutions of 800 exhibitors who will fill the ProMat’s 300,000 square foot show floor.

ProMat 2013’s exhibits will represent all segments of the material handling and logistics industry, from traditional, manual equipment to computerized, automated systems and information technologies. Manufacturers, consultants, third party logistics providers, publishers and systems integrators will be there to demonstrate their equipment, systems, software and services to manufacturing, distribution, supply chain and logistics professionals from around the world. These professionals come to ProMat year after year seeking solutions that make their supply chains work more productively and profitably.

ProMat attracts over 30,000 visitors from over 100 countries, and will once again feature an International Visitors Center. The Center provides matchmaker services for interested buyers and sellers. International trade specialists will be on hand to provide expert counseling. ProMat has applied for selection by the United States Department of Commerce as an official International Buyer Program event. In addition to the exhibition, ProMat 2013 will also offer a comprehensive Educational Conference featuring Keynotes and a show floor Knowledge Center. Industry experts will lead a broad range of show floor educational sessions covering all aspects of manufacturing, distribution and supply chain operations.
