MHI Annual Conference to feature tracks on accelerating change in supply chains


Monday, July 18, 2016

(Charlotte, NC) July 18, 2016 – MHI recently announced the speaker lineup for its 2016 Annual Conference, held in Tucson, AZ October 17-19. This year, the conference will feature six educational topics and two solutions group education sessions that focus on key themes identified by the US Roadmap for Material Handling & Logistics.
 
The six education sessions have two ‘tracks’ for each topic - a "class track,” with a traditional presenter or panel, and a "lab track" that offers a more interactive, hands-on experience.  The six topics are:
 
U.S. Roadmap for Material Handling & Logistics
Supply Chain Workforce
Material Handling and Supply Chain Technology
Managing Change
Leadership
Marketing in the Supply Chain Industry
 
Both the class and lab tracks are led by seasoned experts from the field and will help participants learn to navigate new challenges the material handling and supply chain industry faces. 
 
For Solutions Group sessions, the Automation Solutions Group will host a discussion on supply chain supplier/customer collaboration, followed by a presentation on how MHI Solutions Groups are meeting real-world supply chain demands by leveraging the combined experience, skills and knowledge of MHI’s 800 members and the user community in 'safe-harbor' environment.
