It is hard to believe that MODEX 2020 has already come and gone! The biennial conference was a showcase for innovation, strategic thinking, and trends shaping the future of the supply chain industry.
We sent about three dozen of our team members – from project managers to outside sales to even members of our executive team – to MODEX 2020. Nearly every area of our business can benefit from networking, growing, and learning about the pains and successes underway in the world of material handling. Our organization takes events like MODEX particularly seriously. There are only a few opportunities each year to bring together the top minds and businesses in our industry. We don’t look at a conference like this as a sales generating exercise. It is a rare instance to share our story and learn from others without that pressure to land a sale.
MHI organizes this event, which alternates each year with Pro-Mat, another fantastic annual convention. They did a great job bringing nearly 1,000 exhibitors and countless industry professionals together. Even with an external situation like the coronavirus pandemic underway, the entire week was handled professionally with a style and excitement that will fuel our entire spring and summer.
You can get a sense of the scope of the event with some cool scenes captured on social media. Be sure to follow MHI on all the major social channels and search the hashtag #MODEX2020 to get a feel for how this event showcased the best and brightest in our industry.
The next big conference for the material handling industry is on the calendar for the International Foodservice Distributors Association taking place this fall. We will be there, but if you want to connect with us before then, click here and let us know how we can provide solutions for every square foot of your warehouse.
