Now the real work begins, applying the solutions discovered here to your business to cut costs and increase productivity and safety in the years ahead. Even though ProMat 2013 closes today, it continues on-line at http://www.ProMatShow.com as an on-going resource to both exhibitors and attendees.

MHI will sponsor another world-class trade event in March 2014. Modex will be held March 17-20, 2014 at Atlanta’s Georgia World Congress Center.
