Where Does the 2018 MHI Annual Conference Theme Come From?

By Alex Batty, MHI Marketing Communications Coordinator |@mhi_alex

Okay, so the theme for the 2018 MHI Annual Conference is “Overcoming Barriers to NextGen Supply Chain Innovation” (and if you didn’t know that, why not?!?! visit mhi.org/conference to see it all!)

But Alex, you ask, where on earth did y’all come up with that maaaaarvelous theme?

Why we stole it, of course.

(But like, from ourselves, so it’s all good.)

If you take a look-see at this little image:

You’ll see a very familiar title. For this year’s Annual Conference we’re building off of the themes we identified in the 2018 MHI Annual Industry Report (which you can get for FREE, by the way -> mhi.org/publications/report).

At the Annual Conference, you’ll learn what’s coming in the next five years and how it will impact and disrupt your operations. We’ll explore the NextGen supply chain innovations, leading trends and best practices explored in the 2018 MHI Annual Industry Report including:

  • • Blockchain for Supply Chains
  • • Building the Future Supply Chain Workforce
  • • Last Mile Logistics
  • • Leadership in the Digital Future
  • • Predictive Analytics
  • • Cybersecurity

By attending, you’ll learn how to utilize these material handling and supply chain trends and innovations and seize new opportunities that turn digital disruption into a tangible advantage for your company. This year we’re going to have four keynotes and twelve education sessions that address these topics.

Head on over to the website to learn more about all the good stuff we have planned for you – mhi.org/conference. If you’re already ready to register, you can go straight to mhi.org/conference/registration.
