Today marks the conclusion of MODEX 2012, 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 over 100 educational conference sessions, including sessions held by our 20 co-located education partners and experienced the solutions demonstrated on the MODEX show floor by over 500 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 MODEX 2012 closes today, it continues on-line at http://www.MODEXShow.com as an on-going resource to both exhibitors and attendees.

The Material Handling Industry of America (MHIA) will sponsor another world-class trade event in January 2013. ProMat 2013 will be held January 21-24, 2013 at Chicago’s McCormick Place.

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

MHIA has been privileged to be your host during MODEX 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.mhia.org .
