As Chairman of The Material Handling Industry of America (MHIA), and on behalf of our officers and members, it is my privilege to welcome you to ProMat 2011.

ProMat 2011 will be four days of non-stop solutions for your manufacturing, distribution and supply chain operations. To make it easier for you to find the solutions you need, the ProMat show floor is organized into convenient solution-specific centers: manufacturing and assembly solutions; information technology (IT) solutions; fulfillment and delivery solutions; and a Knowledge Center featuring 90 educational sessions. Please visit the Knowledge Center Show Floor Theaters at the back of the show hall for session titles and times.

The ProMat conference will also feature Keynotes today and tomorrow morning that will explore supply chain security and the next generation of robotic innovation. Today, former Homeland Security Secretary Tom Ridge will address supply chain security at 8:45 a.m. in Room S102. On Tuesday and Wednesday, the ProMat Conference will feature two full-afternoon educational tracks on supply chain sustainability and workforce talent development.

Welcome to all those attending today’s Material Handling and Logistics Classroom Day beginning at 9:30 a.m. in Room S403 A&B.

MHIA is proud to sponsor ProMat 2011 and Modex 2012 (February 6-9, 2012 in Atlanta’s Georgia World Congress Center) and to represent the industry that provides the essential material handing and logistics solutions that make the supply chain work.  For more information on MHIA programs, visit the Industry Resources booth in The Hub at the center of the ProMat show floor or visit http://www.mhia.org.

Enjoy the show!

E. Larry Strayhorn, President
Chairman, MHIA
