What to Expect from a MHEDA Convention

When you attend a MHEDA Convention, you will gather with hundreds of industry professionals under one roof for four days of outstanding high quality education and endless networking possibilities not to mention many exciting area tours. 

This is MHEDA’s premier industry event and offers thought-provoking keynote presentations and timely educational workshops. Presentations with views about the global economy, business cycle pressures and predictions for what’s ahead are always featured. During the workshops, you will have the opportunity to meet face to face with industry peers and learn from exceptional speakers.

Another popular session at the convention is the Round Table Discussion sessions where attendees share ideas with other material handling executives. Attendees have uninterrupted time to discuss challenges and opportunities that matter most to you, and learn how others in the industry are handling these same issues.

Another well attended event at a MHEDA Convention is the ever popular Exhibitor Showcase. Members come together to display their products or services giving attendees the opportunity to learn about the latest products, technologies and services. This event brings networking to a whole new level.

As with any gathering, a MHEDA Convention will also strengthen and form new relationships.
