MHI has announced the dates for ProMat 2015. ProMat 2015 will be held March 23-26, 2015 at Chicago’s McCormick Place South.

ProMat 2015 will be the largest international material handling, logistics and supply chain show and conference held in North America. Over 800 exhibitors are expected to showcase their solutions on the 300,000 square foot ProMat 2015 show floor.

ProMat exhibits will represent all segments of the material handling and logistics industry, from traditional, manual equipment to computerized, automated systems. To make it easier for attendees to find the solutions they need, the ProMat show floor will be divided into solution-specific sections: Equipment and components for manufacturing/assembly logistics solutions, fulfillment and delivery solutions, and information technology (IT) solutions.

ProMat brings together manufacturers, consultants, third party logistics providers, publishers and systems integrators to demonstrate their equipment, systems and services to tens of thousands of industry professionals from around the globe, seeking productivity solutions through material handling and logistics.

The ProMat 2015 exhibit Space Draw will be held December 10, 2013 in Chicago at McCormick Place. This will be the first opportunity for organizations to secure exhibit space at this event.

ProMat 2015 will again include its International Buyer Program. The Program provides matchmaker services for interested buyers and sellers through an International Business Center located in the show hall. ProMat 2015 will also feature a comprehensive educational conference including keynotes and show floor educational seminars led by industry experts.
