On behalf of the Material Handling Industry of America (MHIA), I would like to take this opportunity to welcome you to ProMat 2011. During your visit, I hope you will be able to take advantage of the most comprehensive material handling, supply chain and logistics education opportunity found under one roof.

At ProMat you have the unique opportunity to learn about manufacturing and supply chain solutions in ProMat’s 90 educational sessions and then to see these solutions in action on the show floor by best-in-class providers. Please visit the Knowledge Center at the back of the ProMat show floor for session titles and times.

MHIA also publishes literature and standards, provides e-learning tools and keeps a vast library of material handling and logistics resources. For more information on MHIA programming and resources, visit the Industry Resources booth in The Hub at the center of the ProMat show floor.

Other MHIA educational programs include The Material Handling Education Foundation, Inc., which provides scholarships and grants to students and teachers to assist their educational and professional growth. The College-Industry Council on Material Handling Education consists of members from industry and academia who work together to develop educational programs and curriculum that meet the needs of the complex business environment. In addition, the MHIA’s Technical Career Education Program offers technical education programming for high schools, community colleges and other institutions. Learn more about MHIA’s activity in this area in the Everyone’s a Student! Booth located in The Hub.
