With more than 950 exhibits and 100 informational seminars, ProMat 2017 offered the best in materials handling and supply chain technology.

By ·

Standing in front of a crowd of attendees and exhibitors, MHI president Gregg Goodner welcomed everyone to ProMat 2017, which took place April 3-6 at McCormick Place in Chicago. This year’s conference theme was “Solve for X,” meaning the exact place where companies come to find their “X,” or that unknown quantity that will take their supply chain to the next level of success.

“This is the largest show we’ve ever had,” said Goodner, pointing out that ProMat continues to hold its ranking as the biggest industrial and supply chain expo in North and South America. For the first time, ProMat was spread across two show floors at McCormick Place; and the show was once again co-located with Automate.

Catherine Morris of the Association for Advancing Automation also welcomed everyone to the conference and invited attendees to check out the many different “expert huddle” opportunities at Automate. “This is also our largest show,” said Morris, “and a very important event for our industry.”
