MHEDA held a Regional Networking Event hosted by LiftOne in Charlotte, NC, on October 12th. The event was well-attended from both distributors and supplier members in the Southeast. The Lunch & Learn featured two guest speakers: Industry Sales Trainer William Walker spoke about raising the standards of sales professionalism in the material handling industry.
