What is MODEX 2014? According to the official website,
MODEX 2014® is the industry’s newest expo for the manufacturing and supply chain industries. It’s where the best and brightest thinkers in the supply chain gather to discuss the trends of today and the challenges of tomorrow. MODEX featured 800 of the leading providers and their solutions in person, in action. MODEX also featured learning opportunities on the latest trends and technologies from leading experts at the MODEX Supply Chain Conference that featured 150 sessions including keynotes from Gil West, Executive Vice President & Chief Operating Officer of Delta Air Lines; former Walmart CEO Lee Scott; and Scott Sopher, principal with Deloitte Consulting.I have to say, that’s a pretty good description of what turned out to be an eye-opening & entertaining show with some great networking opportunities. The show floor was huge & the attendance was great. The team at MMH.com wrote about the show’s success on their blog. Here’s an excerpt:
