ProMat, the materials handling industry’s premier trade show and educational conference, will be held at McCormick Place South from March 21 to 24, and officials are getting ready to welcome nearly 30,000 visitors.

Attendees will find more than 700 exhibits, two keynotes, two educational tracks and 80 educational sessions spread over the four days. In addition, registered attendees not only gain full access to ProMat, but also free entry into Automate 2011, held across the hall in McCormick Place North.

Like ProMat, Automate (formerly the International Robots, Vision & Motion Control Show) is held just once every two years. Sponsored by the Automation Technologies Council (ATC)—and its trade associations Robotic Industries Association (RIA), Automated Imaging Association (AIA) and Motion Control Association (MCA)—Automate will showcase the latest robotic, vision, motion control and automation technologies and systems.
