The MODEX 2014 exhibit spacedraw, held January 23 in Chicago, attracted 340 exhibitors who reserved a first-day record of 145,000 net square feet of show floor space at the Industry’s premier U.S. event. This record amount of space reserved is a clear message that the material handling, logistics and supply chain industry is healthy and growing. NACCO Materials Handling Group selected the first booth of the draw on behalf of their Hyster and Yale brands.

“The success of the MODEX exhibit spacedraw is a clear indicator that material handling, logistics and supply chain solution providers have a positive economic outlook and bodes very well for both the MODEX expo and our industry as a whole,” according to George W. Prest, Chief Executive Officer of MHI.

MODEX 2014, sponsored by MHI, will be the most comprehensive international manufacturing and supply chain expo held in the U.S. in 2014. MODEX will showcase the solutions of 800 exhibitors who will fill the MODEX’s 250,000 square foot show floor. MODEX will be held March 17-20, 2014 at Atlanta’s Georgia World Congress Center.

MODEX 2014 exhibits will represent solutions that span the supply chain, from traditional, manual equipment to computerized, automated systems and information technologies. Manufacturers, consultants, third party logistics providers, publishers and systems integrators will be there to demonstrate their equipment, systems, software and services to manufacturing and supply chain professionals from around the world. These professionals will come to MODEX seeking solutions that make their supply chains work more productively and profitably.

MODEX attracts over 20,000 visitors from over 100 countries, and will once again feature an International Visitors Center. The Center provides matchmaker services for interested buyers and sellers. In addition to the exhibition, MODEX will also offer a comprehensive Supply Chain Conference featuring Keynotes, show floor seminars and several collocated partner events. Industry experts will lead a broad range of show floor educational sessions covering all aspects of manufacturing, distribution and supply chain operations.
