Reminder: ProMat 2009 Coming Up- January 12-15
ProMat is the premier tradeshow showcasing anything and everything related to the world of material handling. Located in Chicago, IL, there will be over 800 material handling and logistics providers will be in attendance, so its important to go into the show with an idea of whose booth you’d like to stop by.
If you have some companies in mind, you can look up their booth number and exhibitor information here.
After looking at a floor plan for ProMat 2009, it should be fairly simple to find the booths of interest. Companies are grouped into the following categories:
- Manufacturing and Assembly
- Fulfillment & Delivery
- Information Technology
There’s also a Knowledge Center provided by the MHIA in order to answer any questions you should have. Check out the ProMat 2009 floor plan here.
Of all the exhibitors at ProMat, I’ve chosen some of my favorites that have some of the most innovative technology to offer the world of material handling.
1) MHIA: Booth #2300
Since the Promat 2009 Show is sponsored by the MHIA, or Material Handling Industry of America, it only makes sense to stop by their booth. At their booth, you can sign up for some educational seminars regarding the material handling industry, or even become a member of the MHIA, which definitely has some great perks.
2) Intermec: Booth #4443
Be sure to stop by the Intermec booth in order to start better identifying, tracking, and managing all of your supply chain solutions. Also, ask about Intermec’s new CK3 mobile computer… it can work wonders both inside and outside the warehouse!
3) Barcoding Inc.: Booth #3844
Check out the Barcoding Inc. booth to see innovative bundled solutions, specifically catered to the needs of those in the material handling industry.
If you’re feeling overwhelmed by all the different booths there are to visit, then be sure to make use of the ProMat 2009 agenda planner once you are a registered attendee of the show.
