Trade Show Tuesday: Guest Speakers at Modex

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.  

Modex always offers seminars on the show floors, which are led by industry experts that tackle a variety of topics on the supply chain, material handling and logistics. 

There are also four keynote speakers hosting events:

  • "Anticipating Tomorrow's Supply Chain Challenges - Today"
    Juan PerezChief Information and Engineering Officer, UPS

  • Welcome to MODEX 2018
    The Honorable Governor Nathan Deal, Governor of Georgia

  • "Harnessing Our Digital Future" 
    Andrew McAfee, Co-Founder and Co-Director of the Initiative on the Digital Economy and a Principal Research Scientist at the MIT Sloan School of Management

  • "Why Dirty Jobs Matter"
    Mike Rowe , Founder of the mikeroweWORKS

Finally, comedian Jim Gaffigan is the headlining entertainment for MHI Industry Night. Gaffigan is a Grammy nominated comedian, actor, writer, producer, two time New York Times best-selling author, top touring performer, and multi-platinum-selling father of five. He is known around the world for his unique brand of humor which largely revolves around fatherhood and his observations on life and food. Tickets are $50 and include beer, wine and hors d'oevres. A portion of the ticket sales will be donated to the Material Handling Education Foundation, Inc.
