Welcome to Modex 2012—the industry’s newest expo for manufacturing and supply chain innovation. At Modex you will see best-in-class manufacturing and supply chain solutions from over 500 exhibiting companies along with a conference of more than 100 sessions.

The Material Handling Industry of America (MHIA) wants to make it as easy as possible to find the products and solutions that interest you and address your operational and supply chain challenges. That’s why we are offering Exhibitor Solution Locator Kiosks located at the front of the Modex show floor. These kiosks allow you to search exhibitors and products displayed on the large show floor, as well as create and print a personalized report.

I encourage you to take advantage of the opportunities available Social Networking Lounge on the Modex show floor. The lounge features Wi-Fi and e-mail centers as well as screens displaying what people are saying about Modex through social media. You can also download your Modex Mobile App at http://www.modexshow.com/app.

There is also a full list of show floor educational seminars and several collocated education partner events. Please refer to signage in the Modex registration area and on the informational screens throughout Building C for the schedule of events.

I hope that your visit to Modex is both informative and productive, and during the next three days you will find solutions for your manufacturing and supply chain operations.
