"Collocating these events with MODEX 2012 will allow manufacturing, distribution and supply chain professionals unparalleled education and networking opportunities as well as exposure to the broadest material handling, logistics and supply chain equipment and technology display of any expo of its kind in North America," says John Nofsinger, Chief Executive Officer for MHIA.

"For our members, attendees and exhibitors, the collocations will add even more value to the MODEX 2012 event; the largest being the Georgia Logistics Summit which last year hosted 1,300 attendees from 21 states and expects to draw even more in conjunction with MODEX 2012." 



"These collocated events will complement the existing Conference at MODEX 2012, which provides valuable insight into the trends and innovations impacting supply chains," says George Prest, Chief Operating Officer for MHIA. "The MODEX 2012 Conference will feature leading-edge topics in manufacturing, distribution and the supply chain, exploring subjects as such as the impact of the Panama Canal expansion to sustainability, security, visibility over four days of sessions led by industry experts."



MODEX 2012 is the industry’s newest expo for manufacturing, distribution and supply chain solutions. MHIA anticipates 500 exhibitors and manufacturing, distribution and supply chain professionals from over 80 countries around the globe to attend MODEX 2012.
