MHI released the final numbers for MODEX 2018, which ran from April 9-12 at Atlanta’s Georgia World Congress Center. MODEX 2018, the 4th edition of the expo, saw a 25 percent jump in the number of registrations for a total of 30,944.

The net square footage at MODEX 2018 also set a record, topping out at 283,025 square feet and featuring 925 exhibits. Reflecting the global nature of the expo, 140 countries were represented at this year’s MODEX.

“MODEX has grown not only in size, but also in overall scope. Attendees experienced a wide range of manufacturing, supply chain and transportation equipment and systems solutions and education,” said George W. Prest, CEO of MHI.

“There were more compelling reasons to attend this year than ever before. Whether they come to find solutions, evaluate vendors, learn about the latest trends and technological innovations or connect with industry leaders and peers, there is no substitute for the value that MODEX delivers. MODEX 2018 truly lived up to its motto, the Greatest Supply Chain Show on Earth,” added Prest.

MODEX 2018 is the largest international expo of its kind held in North or South America. The 2018 Georgia Logistics Summit was collocated with the event.

Emerging technologies such as IIoT, robotics and artificial intelligence provide exciting opportunities for supply chains. They also mean an exponential growth in the amount of data these supply chains generate. When properly utilized, this data can provide crucial information to improve efficiency, reduce costs, enhance transparency and customer service. But it comes with risk. The more digitized a supply chain becomes, the more it is at risk of cyberattack. Hackers are constantly finding new ways create data breaches they can exploit. The reality that most supply chains require third-party suppliers down the chain only heightens this threat. No matter the scale of your supply chain, it is essential to have solid cybersecurity processes in place to manage and mitigate the growing risk of cyberattack. That’s what this issue of MHI Solutions is all about, from cybersecurity threats in an IIoT world to dark data to the human factor in cybersecurity to blockchain as a potential solution.
