2024 ALA Annual Conference

June 10, 2024

Who's ready for sunny San Diego!? We're excited to celebrate you all at ALA 2024. We'd love to see you at booth #923 and, whatever you do, make sure you don't miss our 1920s-style party on Saturday night!

Our AMH show machine will span TWO BOOTHS

We're bringing a gigantic automated material handling (AMH) system to the show floor at ALA 2024. Most of our customers don't need overhead conveyance, but we wanted to pull out all the stops to show you how our system can go below, around, above, and beyond to make your totalAMH system work for your space.

We've affectionately chosen the name "Rosie" for this AMH system. Rosie resembles a caterpillar and, like most caterpillars, this caterpillar's favorite is to eat as much as she can, as fast as she can. All throughout ALA weekend, Rosie will be sorting library materials for breakfast, lunch, and dinner!

Please come and feed Rosie a delicious stack of literature from our book cart. She'll be your friend forever! For those who missed Rosie last year, here's a video from ALA 2023 so you can see what she looks like. When you're on the show floor in San Diego, just look for Tech Logic's hanging sign and Rosie's overhead conveyance!

Because our totalAMH systems require no patron or staff interface (folks can simply drop items and go), Rosie can help us promote our 1920s party on Saturday night! Here's a sneak peek:

Because our totalAMH systems require no patron or staff interface, our ALA 2024 machine can also help us promote our 1920s-style party! Did you RSVP, yet!?
