Today marks the conclusion of ProMat 2013, four days of comprehensive problem solving and networking to provide solutions to the complex manufacturing and supply chain challenges faced by industry today.

You have seen these challenges addressed in more 100 educational conference sessions, including three keynotes and five educational track sessions. You have experienced the solutions demonstrated on the ProMat show floor by 800 exhibiting companies, first hand.

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.

More information and free on-line registration for Modex can be found at http://www.MODEXShow.com.

MHI has been privileged to be your host during ProMat and would like to serve as a year-round resource as you face the challenges and opportunities of a more complex and ever-changing commercial world. We can be reached by phone at 800-345-1815 or 704-676-1190, by fax at 704-676-1199 or by visiting us on-line at http://www.mhi.org .
