ProMat Sneak Peek: 5 Seminars for the latest in Automation and Rack
ProMat 2023 is right around the corner, scheduled to run from March 20th to March 23rd, 2023 at McCormick Place in Chicago. Considering that ProMat is the single largest trade show for those working in the order fulfillment, supply chain management, and warehouse industries, it’s easy to understand why everyone is looking forward to the show.
For most attendees, time spent at the show is largely dedicated to meeting with potential customers, solutions providers, and partners, as well as scoping out the competition. But while those activities are obviously important, the teams that tend to get the most value out of attending ProMat are the ones that make a point of attending at least a handful of educational seminars that take place over the course of the event.

Over the course of the four-day show, there are more than 150 keynotes, lectures, and educational seminars for you and your team to choose from. While it’s great to have so many options, the sheer volume can admittedly make settling your schedule a little difficult.
To help make selecting your ProMat 2023 educational schedule a little bit easier, we’ve decided to pull together a list of what we consider the best of the best sessions that you should consider attending.
