ProMat 2007 showcased the latest innovations in the material handling and logistics industries. The Material Handling Industry of America (MHIA)-sponsored show attracted more than 35,000 national and international visitors to 736 exhibitor booths in Chicago on January 8-11. This year’s numbers represent an attendance growth over previous shows.
“Attendees came to ProMat 2007 not just looking for supply chain solutions, but ready to buy and implement them,” said John Nofsinger, chief executive officer of MHIA, in a statement. “And exhibitors came armed with their best solutions the industry has to offer. One highlight of the show is its diversity, from the diversity of the equipment and technology solutions on the show floor to the diversity of the companies attending, countries represented and unique challenges each faces to make their supply chains work more productively and profitably.”
