MODEX Backyard: Bringing the Outside Inside (+ Food Trucks)

By Alex Batty, MHI Marketing Communications Coordinator |@mhi_alex

This year at MODEX we’re introducing the MODEX Backyard, and, y’all, it’s going to be so cool!


Basically, the concept is to bring some of the outside inside. It’s gonna be a back yard! It will be populated by stuff like plants and furniture (that also charges your devices, so better than normal). There will also be real fake grass! Outside inside all day long.

There will also be food vendors and trucks.

FOOD. So important during a long day of trade show-ing.

The MODEX Backyard is going to be a place to relax and get recharged for more show exploration. It’s also going to be one of the only places to get food and it’s on the show floor, so it’s super convenient.

On top of that, there are multiple giveaways planned in the backyard each day. WHO WOULDN’T WANT TO WIN FREE THINGS?!?!

The MODEX Backyard will be in the C Hall, so make sure you head over there to check it out.

(See, even the floor plan agrees with me. FOOD.)

MODEX 2018 will be held April 9-12 in Atlanta’s Georgia World Congress Center. Over 850 exhibitors will showcase their solutions on MODEX’s two show floors totaling over 280,000 square feet of manufacturing and supply chain solutions. MODEX exhibits will represent all segments of the material handling and supply chain logistics industry, from traditional, manual equipment to computerized, automated systems. MODEX 2018 will also feature a comprehensive educational conference including keynotes and show floor educational seminars led by industry experts and leading authorities.
