Some 150,000 sq ft of floor space will accommodate exhibitors from over 400 of the leading suppliers of material handling and logistics solutions for manufacturing, distribution and warehousing operations.

NA is expected to be the most comprehensive international material handling and logistics show and conference held in the US in 2008. Exhibitors will represent all segments of the material handling and logistics industry, from traditional manual equipment to computerised automated systems.

To make it easier for attendees to find the solutions they need, the NA 2008 show floor will be divided into four solution-specific sections:

– Equipment and components for manufacturing solutions

– Fulfillment and delivery solutions

– Information technology (IT) solutions

– Assembly logistics and support solutions

NA will bring together manufacturers, consultants, third party logistics providers, publishers and systems integrators to demonstrate their equipment, systems and services to tens of thousands of industry professionals from around the world, seeking supply chain solutions through material handling and logistics.

The show will also offer a comprehensive educational conference including a keynotes session and show floor educational sessions covering all aspects of material handling and logistics. In addition to the actual event, NA 2008 will also feature a comprehensive virtual event online at

The NA 2008 so-called spacedraw will be held on January 10 during the ProMat 2007 event at Chicago’s McCormick Place South. This will be the first opportunity to secure exhibitor space at this event.
