|One of North America's largest materials handling exhibitions, MODEX 2016, kicks off in Atlanta, Georgia on Monday, and it looks set for healthy attendance levels.
Over 800 exhibitors are preparing the final touches, and visitors from around the globe are winging their way there - among them, Forkliftaction's Yvette O'Connor.
There will, of course, be plenty of product to see, but organisers stress that there will also be lots of learning opportunities at the MODEX Supply Chain Conference which brings together leading experts from the industry to discuss manufacturing and supply chain trends, technologies and innovations.
We will report on the event next week.
