ProMat 2013 is the premier showcase of material handling, supply chain and logistics solutions in North America. The show is designed to offer productivity solutions and information by showcasing the products and services of over 700 leading material handling and logistics providers.
To make it easier for attendees to find the solutions they need, the ProMat 2013 show floor is divided into three solution-specific centers: Manufacturing and assembly solutions, fulfillment and delivery solutions, and information technology (IT) solutions. An extensive educational conference runs concurrently with the show and includes sessions on improving operational productivity and visibility in manufacturing, distribution and in the overall supply chain. This format allows attendees to learn about various material handling and logistics solutions in the educational sessions and then actually see the equipment, systems and services that can implement those solutions.
The U.S. Department of Commerce has consistently selected ProMat to be an official International Buyer Program event.
Attendees: Manufacturing, distribution and supply chain professionals from the United States, Canada, Mexico and over 110 countries around the world are expected to attend. They will attend to find productivity, visibility and cost-cutting solutions for their manufacturing, distribution and warehousing operations.
