National Fluid Power Assn. (NFPA)

Industry leaders from across the fluid power supply chain will convene at the Four Seasons Resort – Orlando at Disney World on February 20-22 for the National Fluid Power Association's 2018 Annual Conference.

This year's conference features an expanded general session for more diverse topics and solid takeaways:

  • Best-selling author Chris McChesney will present Wednesday’s keynote. Based on his book, The 4 Disciplines of Execution, his two-part presentation will give attendees a practical framework to help their companies achieve their wildly important goals.
  • Business and sales consultant, speaker, and trainer Joe Ellers will educate attendees on best practices in business strategy and sales management in a special lunch session.
    • Jeremy Drury, the vice president of IoT Diagnostics, will bring attendees up to speed on IoT in fluid power as well as what to consider when developing a strategy for implementation.
    • Geopolitical strategist Peter Zeihan will go in depth into the current state of global geopolitics and how it affects business decisions.

    Because of the diversity of NFPA's members and their reasons for attending the conference, the speakers appeal across the fluid power supply chain and deliver a broad spectrum of insights.

    Other conference highlights include golf and off-site tours.
