One of the engine-powered-equipment markets (as well as non-engine-powered-equipment) best economic events has opened for registration. Sponsored by the National Fluid Power Association (NFPA) registration is now open for the 2019 Industry & Economic Outlook Conference. The conference will be held August 12 to 14 at the Hilton Chicago/Oak Brook Hills Resort.
Hydraulics is always an excellent and reliable measuring tool for the health and future of a lot of markets with hydraulics being used both in machines and in the machines that make the machines. Plus being held in August it can provide attendees with an excellent glimpse of the year ahead on the cusp of the post-Labor Day budgeting season.
NFPA said, “this year’s schedule is packed with an outstanding lineup of industry experts, and, as always, registration is open to everyone in the fluid power supply chain—NFPA members and non-members alike.” The agenda and registration can be found here.
Focusing on the opportunities and threats associated with the economy as they relate specifically to the fluid power industry, the IEOC features the analyses, hard data, and insight needed to help fluid power business leaders translate economic trends into competitive intelligence and successfully plan for the future.
This year’s content will also cover multiple angles of Internet of Things technology in the manufacturing marketplace. The conference consistently brings in 300+ attendees from across the fluid power supply chain, making it one of the best opportunities for information gathering and networking.
New for this year, the NFPA and the American Gear Manufacturers Association (AGMA) have partnered to co-locate the AGMA Marketing & Forecasting Conference with the 2019 NFPA Industry and Economic Outlook Conference. This co-location is part of both associations’ on-going efforts to offer members a wider offering of information and networking opportunities for the entire power transmission industry.
