MHI, ITE and Messe München join forces, new trade fair logistics with MODEZ in 2018

[ June 20, 2016   //   ]

A newly created international Transportation & Logistics Americas (TLA) exhibition is being launched, to be collocated with the already established MODEX supply chain exposition. Both events will take place on April 9-12, 2018 at Atlanta’s Georgia World Congress Center. MODEX is sponsored by MHI and is the largest manufacturing and supply chain expo held in North and South America with over 800 exhibitors covering over 250,000 sq. ft. and a conference of over 100 sessions.

MHI intends to further expand its MODEX event more into the areas of external logistics. To help facilitate this, MHI is partnering with the two industry leading exhibition organizers in ITE Group, known for Breakbulk and Messe München, known for their transport logistics exhibition brand. ITE and Messe München will host the collocated Transportation & Logistics Americas independently of MODEX.

“The decision to collocate MODEX 2018 and TLA was made for several reasons,” according to George W. Prest, MHI CEO. “The collocation will allow manufacturing and supply chain professionals the opportunity to take advantage of unparalleled education and networking opportunities as well as exposure to the largest equipment and technology display of any show of its kind in the Americas. In today’s world where agile and innovative supply chains are a requirement, the collocation represents a win-win for exhibitors and attendees.”

“Both events provide excellent synergies as the two areas of supply chain and logistics present themselves jointly in the future,” says Laurent Noel, Industry Director of ITE. “Collocating with the very well-established MODEX event offers TLA exhibitors an excellent venue to showcase their solutions.”

“International logistics providers will get an easy market entry while American exhibitors also benefit from a strong logistics exhibition,” added Gerhard Gerritzen, Member of the Managing Board of Messe München. “With the collocation, a large show covering the entire supply chain management and transportation spectrum will be born.”
