With more than 850 exhibitors expected at MODEX 2018, finding the equipment, technologies, or services that interest you can be a challenge.

To help attendees more easily locate exhibits, show planners have organized the 250,000 square feet of exhibit space into function-specific solution centers. Here's a brief description of what you'll find in each section:

Manufacturing & Assembly Solutions Center
In this center, you'll find material handling, logistics, and supply chain solutions designed to boost the efficiency of manufacturing and assembly operations.

Fulfillment & Delivery Solutions Center
This center showcases solutions designed to support both traditional and e-commerce order fulfillment; order picking and packaging; and third-party logistics, warehousing, distribution, and transportation activities.

Information Technology (IT) Solutions Center
In this center, you'll find companies offering IT solutions or consulting services that support or are integrated with manufacturing, warehousing, logistics, and supply chain processes.

Smart City Logistics and Connected Supply Chain Solutions Center
This center focuses on connected technologies, including "smart city" technologies that can help urban areas address the increasing challenges of congestion, noise, and pollution associated with more frequent last-mile deliveries to their growing populations. Here, you can see, touch, and operate next-generation supply chain solutions, including sensors, driverless vehicles, robotics and automation, and augmented-reality wearable technologies.

Transportation & Logistics Solutions Center
This center focuses on solutions for companies looking to bring people, markets, and goods together in a way that is faster, more efficient, and more sustainable than current practices.

The Knowledge Center
In addition to the solution-specific centers, the MODEX Show includes a Knowledge Center. This center offers industry resources and information as well as more than 100 free educational sessions held right on the show floor.
