2022 Convention Recap

Thank you so much to the nearly 600 MHEDA Members representing over 200 companies from around the world that joined us April 23-27 at the Loews Sapphire Falls in Orlando, Florida. It was so amazing to see the Material Handling community together again for a few days of learning, networking, giving back and having fun.

Thank you to the 2022 MHEDA Board of Directors and Manufacturer Board of Advisors for all of your help planning and executing this event. Special shout out to Convention Chair John Gelsimino for paying extra attention to all of the details.

Speaker Handouts

  • For those members who registered for the convention, you have access to many of the speaker handout materials. All can be downloaded via the MHEDA convention app or at the URL provided to attendees.
  • We learned so much from Scott Klososky about how technology is impacting people’s minds. During his session he was doing live polling of the nearly 200 attendees in his session – click here to access those questions and results. Interesting real time data from MHEDA Member attendees. 

Well planned and executed. Content was powerful and relevant.

Give Back Event

An important part of MHEDA’s convention experience, includes Giving Back to the community. Members enjoyed packing over 1,000 food and hygiene packs for One Heart Women and Children Orlando. Make sure to watch this fun video One Heart shared with us. We also decorated and packed over 400 snack bags for the Boys and Girls Club of Orlando.

Thank You!

The MHEDA Convention is a labor of love. Our vision is to be recognized among our members and peers as the premier trade association in North America. We hope the convention reflects this vision, to be the best. We are so very appreciative of your continued support!

Well planned and executed. Content was powerful and relevant.
