Networking Events

MHEDA schedules events throughout the year to specifically give members the opportunity to network with fellow MHEDA members and other professionals from the material handling industry. These events include:

Annual Convention & Exhibitor Showcase

MHEDA’s premier event gathers hundreds of industry professionals for four days of thought-provoking educational sessions, daily keynote presentations, the latest products on display, and endless networking possibilities, not to mention many fun and exciting local area tours. 

Women in Industry Forums

Each year more and more women are hired within the material handling industry. MHEDA brings women in the industry together at forums and conferences.

Networking Receptions

These receptions are held in conjunction with industry trade shows and are a great opportunity to network with other industry professionals at a relaxed informal gathering.

Regional Networking Summits

Regional Networking Summits are members coming together as a group to network with others in the material handling industry who live and work in the same area of the country. A tour of a material handling facility is included along with presentations from noted industry speakers.

MHEDA is always looking for members to host and sponsor a Regional Networking Summit at their facility. If you are interested in hosting a Regional Networking Summit, contact Rebecca Hein at
