MODEX 2024: What to See and Do in Atlanta

Author Icon Mary Hart, Senior Content Marketing Manager

March has St. Patrick’s Day and Easter (yes, it’s in March this year) as the top celebrations, but in the manufacturing and supply chain world, the biggest celebration in March is MODEX in Atlanta, GA at the Georgia World Congress Center. Close to 45,000 people will attend this all important trade show from March 11th to the 14th to see the latest and greatest innovations from over 900 vendors. 

While you’re at MODEX, we know you’ll be busy checking out the booths, presentations, and demos, but you’ll also have to eat and should explore the sites. Don’t miss out on these top Atlanta restaurants and attractions around the educational fun that MODEX has to offer.

Start Here at MODEX

First, stop by our booth #B3219. You’ll get to see our bots – Locus Origin and Vector – live and in action, and learn how we’re redefining warehouse automation. We’ll help you move what matters in your warehouse, whether you have 100 bots in 25,000 square feet or 1,000 bots in 1 million square feet. 

Locus TheaterAt our booth, you can see our case picking, putaway, and piece picking solutions in action. Sign up for one of our tours to experience one (or all) of the Locus solutions in action. Our experts are hosting 15-minute insider demos for our key use cases – case picking, piece picking, and putaway. Register quickly as spaces are limited. Times are listed in the sign up form.

As in past years, once again you’ll get a chance to hear directly from our customers. Join us at the Locus Theater for a series of intimate conversations with our customers and industry experts to hear how they brought automation into the warehouses, why they chose Locus, and the results! Last year’s theater featured leaders from UPS, DHL, GEODIS, and more.

MODEX 2024 Keynotes and Presentations 

MODEX offers information and education about all things supply chain, including 54 sessions on Automation and Robotics and another 54 on Distribution and Warehousing. Make sure you have these presentations in your schedule.
