We anticipate selling out the event and have a memorable event designed to give you the opportunity to meet in person with your Material Handling business colleagues.
Several companies have been contacting the membership, asking if they are interested in purchasing the MHEDA’s 2021 Annual Convention contacts for your sales, marketing, and promotional activities. These companies are not members of MHEDA and are in no way affiliated with MHEDA. We would never sell our member’s contact information. Please do not respond to this email.

Yes, there is inflation. Yes, it's going to last for a while.
Federal Reserve and Treasury officials tell us that the rise in prices we’re seeing will be temporary. Most economists are predicting modest inflation from anywhere between 2-5% during the coming months. We've already seen spikes in both consumer and producer prices. But the markets don't seem to be panicking — yet. And no one in charge seems to be veering from their course, despite congressional pressures and media attention.

On the Bright Side
It was an ordinary Saturday afternoon in New Hampshire when a hungry customer walked into a restaurant, sat at the outside bar, and ordered some food. Roughly two hot dogs, some chips, a coke, a beer and a shot of tequila later, he paid his $37 tab and left -- but not before including a $16,000 tip.
"Don't spend it all in one place," the customer joked to the bartender, according to Mike Zarella, who owns the Stumble Inn Bar & Grill in Londonderry. The bartender didn't look at the check or notice the tip until the customer, who asked to remain anonymous, gave her another two hints to take a look.
"When she looked down, she was just absolutely shocked. She was like, 'Oh, my God, no that's just crazy,'" Zarella told CNN. "The girls went over to him and thanked him. They are overjoyed."
The tip was left on June 12, but Zarella didn't share the story until June 21 because he wanted to see if the payment would actually go through first. Once it did, he shared the kind act on Facebook.
