Join MHI in our effort to build our industry’s future workforce by donating your tradeshow equipment to career and technical education programs around the United States. By donating your equipment to learning labs and educational facilities, students will graduate with the hands-on training needed for jobs in the material handling, logistics and supply chain industries.

Why donate?

  • Receive recognition in post-show articles and press releases as being a partner in MHI’s effort to build our industry’s future workforce.
  • Give students the opportunity to learn how to operate your brand’s equipment before entering the industry.
  • Save on your total tradeshow shipping costs by donating to a nearby school.
  • Receive a tax deduction from your equipment donation.

Be a part of the impact!

Throughout the years, the donated equipment has allowed our students to work with the actual equipment they will experience when they enter industry. It also benefits the companies donating, as our current students will likely be the future employees and managers that will be making purchasing decisions. These future leaders are more likely to purchase products and brands that they are familiar with through past experience.
