Convention Focus
MHEDA invites you to join us Aug. 11-14, 2021 at the JW Marriott Austin Hotel, in vibrant and growing downtown Austin, Texas. We are planning a memorable event designed to give you the opportunity to meet in person with your Material Handling business colleagues. New this year is the combination of the Exhibitor Showcase with the “main stage” ballroom where we will gather for our keynote presentations, meals and mini-workshops called MHEDA Talks. Having many of the convention programs all in one room captures the human energy we have all missed from being apart for so long. We promise to do our best to keep the event energizing, engaging and entertaining.
