ProMat, the materials handling industry’s premier trade show and educational conference, will be held at McCormick Place North and South from April 3- April 6, 2017, and officials are getting ready to welcome nearly 38,000 visitors.

Attendees will find more than 800 exhibits from industry, commerce and government showcased throughout the 375,000 square feet show floor covering both the North and South halls. Also included are four keynotes and more than 100 educational sessions spread over four days. In addition, registered attendees not only gain full access to ProMat, but also free entry into Automate 2015, held in McCormick Place North.

Like ProMat, Automate is held just once every two years. Automate—like MHI-sponsored ProMat—is held just once every two years. Sponsored by the Association for Advancing Automation (A3)—and its trade associations, the Robotic Industries Association (RIA); AIA, the global association for vision and imaging; and the Motion Control & Motor Association (MCMA)—Automate showcases the full spectrum of automation technologies and solutions. The show highlights the future of automation, which is changing dynamically due to mobile and collaborative robots, cloud computing, smart manufacturing and the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT).
