ProMat 2017: Explore the show

Welcome to ProMat 2017—the industry’s largest expo for manufacturing and supply chain innovation.

By ·

At ProMat you will see best-in-class manufacturing and supply chain solutions from 950 exhibiting companies along with a supply chain conference of more than 100 educational sessions. Theaters are located in the South Hall and in the North Hall for Sustainable Facility Solutions and Autonomous Vehicle Solutions.

MHI wants to make it as easy as possible to find the products and solutions that interest you and address your operational and supply chain challenges. That’s why we offer Exhibitor Solution Locator Kiosks located at the front of the ProMat show floor. These kiosks allow you to search exhibitors and products displayed on the show floor, as well as create and print a personalized report. In addition, you can download the official ProMat app at to have all this information on your Apple or Android device.

I encourage you to take advantage of the opportunities available in The Hub located at the center of the ProMat show floor. The Hub features a wi-fi and e-mail center as well as screens displaying video and what people are saying about ProMat through social media. You can also learn about job opportunities provided by ProMat exhibitors at the ProMat Career Forum kiosks.

This morning’s keynote session features Markus Lorenz of the Boston Consulting Group. He will detail how Industry 4.0 will transform how manufacturing operations and supply chains work today. The Keynote begins at 8:45 a.m. in Room S100.

Today’s schedule of events also includes show floor educational seminar on the U.S. Material Handling & Logistics Roadmap 2.0, a Women in Supply Chain Summit starting at 12:30 p.m. and a Young Professionals Networking Event at 5 p.m. in Room S102D.

Today, ProMat features a full list of show floor educational seminars in the South and North Halls. The North Hall theaters will include presentations on sustainability facility solutions and autonomous vehicle and drone technology.

I hope that your visit to ProMat is both informative and productive, and during the next three days you will find solutions for your manufacturing and supply chain operations.
