After a week of meeting potential customers, visiting with vendors and catching up on industry news the Millwood team has returned home from their trip to Atlanta.
Wonder how Millwood does it, year after year? Here are the golden rules of the trade show business:
Because of the complexity of supply chains, it is easy to lose sight of a single pallet. Unfortunately, the occasional disappearance of a single pallet can cost the pallet industry millions over the course of time. In fact, many pallets, especially plastic pallets, become absorbed into the pallet black market.
The Western Pallet Association (WPA) recently held their annual meeting in Rancho Mirage, California. Almost 200 people were in attendence for the "Get the Edge: Stay Sharp in 2018" conference. The meeting is open to both members and nonmembers alike, so Millwood (a member of the WPA) posed the question: why should someone become a member?
Modex hosts a variety of guest speakers, as well as featured entertainment for registered attendees.
Trade shows are opportunities for customers, vendors and suppliers to either network with new faces or reconnect with old friends. However, there's more to the shows than booths, demos and meetings with product managers; it also serves as an opportunity to learn more about the industry.

For the series debut, we invited Ralph Rupert, Manager – Unit Load Technologies, to discuss the lecture he gave at this year’s Western Pallet Association meeting.
It happens every New Year's Eve; we make big plans for exercising more, eating better, spending more time with family and other resolutions that become difficult to commit to by the time February rolls around.
Millwood was especially dedicated to the Christmas spirit this December and hosted several events for team members to enjoy with each other and their families.
