Student Days

Donation Enables Logistics Students from Guilford Co. to Come to ProMat

Dun & Bradstreet, a New Jersey-based data insight company, donated $20,000 dollars to Guilford County Schools with $10,000 going straight to the Western Guilford’s logistics class. With this donation, six students from this class are able to attend Students Days at ProMat 2017 in April where they will have the opportunity to learn about the logistics industry first hand. Students will see hands-on demonstrations of the latest technologies and innovations from over 950 exhibitors from industry, commerce and government.

About Student Days

Students at universities, high schools, community colleges and technical schools in material handling, logistics and supply chain programs come to ProMat every show for Student Days. Students Days is a two-day event (April 5-6, 2017) where academia and industry professionals engage in real-world discussions with students  about the technologies and the skill sets required for future influencers within the industry.

For the 14th consecutive year, the College Industry Council on Material Handling Education will sponsor a day (April 5th) for students to visit the show floor and meet with exhibitors on guided tours, led by experts in their field. Over 200 students participate in Classroom Day each year and come away with a real world understanding of the products, services and technologies that enable the supply chain.

Student days will concluded with guided facility tours on April 6th. Students will climb aboard pre-arranged ground transportation departing from McCormick Place to see real world applications at two local facilities using state-of-the-art technologies.

ProMat 2017 will be held at Chicago’s McCormick Place from April 3-6. It is the largest manufacturing and supply chain event held in 2017. Learn more and register at no cost to attend.
