MODEX Welcomes The Crane Manufacturers Association of America (CMAA), an independent trade association affiliated with the Material Handling Industry (MHI), will host a one-day overhead crane safety-themed conference at next year’s MODEX show, which takes place 9-12 April 2018 at the Georgia World Congress Center in Atlanta, GA.

Every two years MODEX, hosted by MHI, welcomes manufacturing and supply chain professionals, who peruse the exhibits of over 800 equipment suppliers and participate in co-located seminars about relevant technologies and future-proofing businesses in the sector. However, CMAA’s Material Handling Overhead Safety Conference is revolutionary in that it will offer a whole day of world-class content on a vertical marketplace, whilst boasting seven professional development hour (PDH) credits.

The conference, which will focus primarily on overhead crane safety technology and practices, will be held on the third day of the show—Wednesday 11 April—and is targeted at plant operations and maintenance staff, including managers, engineers, and crane technicians.

Frank Petrek, group vice president at Xtek Inc., a CMAA member company, says: “Anyone who has responsibility for cranes and is interested in improvements by reducing safety incidents and extending the life of their equipment should attend.”
