Are You Going to Modex?

Updated: Apr 29, 2020

Just about every industry holds its own trade show to highlight innovations, showcase contributors, and offer its members a place to learn, share, and network in all aspects of the trade. Well… supply chain and material handling are no different, and our team at Xact Warehouse Solutions is MODEX-bound!

From April 4th through 7th MHI, the nation’s largest material handling, logistics and supply chain association will sponsor MODEX, the industry’s leading conference event.  The show, featuring over 800 material handling and supply chain providers, and offering 100+ on-floor seminars, will be held in Atlanta’s Georgia World Congress Center. The seminars run approximately 45 minutes and promise to educate on a wide range of topics like technologic innovations and new ways to improve automation efficiency. We’re especially looking forward to MHI Young Professional Network’s (YPN) “It’s Not Just for Guys Anymore” panel on women in supply chain.

MODEX also features keynote speeches from industry innovators and even one very sharp shark! Shark Tank’s Kevin O’Leary will share humor injected insights, insider secrets and personal advice on how to grow your business during his time on Tuesday April 6th.

MHI boasts that despite a massive 250,000 square feet of exhibits, seminars and events, MODEX will have easy to navigate exhibits arranged by function. That doesn’t come as a surprise from the top innovators in efficiently moving things from point A to point B!

MODEX won’t be all speeches and seminars, though! The Blues Brothers Revue will be the feature entertainment at the 2016 Innovation Award ceremony.  Submissions for the awards are from software companies, equipment manufacturers, and others that continue to innovate in the world of supply chain. And if you’re feeling lucky, you can enter to win a 2016 Porsche Cayman S, with proceeds going to benefit the Material Handling Education Fund Inc (MHEFI).

MODEX will be an exciting networking opportunity for end users, dealers and distributors, educational institutions, and business services providers alike.  Xact Warehouse solutions will be attending MODEX and we can’t wait to see you! Contact us at or  if you’d like to meet us there. We’ll be happy to walk the space with you and help you navigate the exhibits, choose the best seminars for your needs, or compare products and technology. If you don’t plan on attending, but are looking to find new solutions for your business, we can do the leg work for you and do some investigating pertinent to your interests. We’re looking forward to exploring how we can help move end users toward the advances and solutions that our partners have to offer!

We hope to see you in Atlanta!
