The new Motion + Power Technology Expo (MPT Expo), formerly Gear Expo, has announced its inaugural event in October 2019. This unique trade show and conference is the product of a partnership between the National Fluid Power Association and the American Gear Manufacturers Association (AGMA), and will bring together a wide-range of professionals within the mechanical power transmission, fluid power and electrical drive industries for three days of educational sessions, networking and a full exhibit hall featuring industry-leading companies. The event will take place at the Cobo Center in Detroit, MI, October 15-17, 2019. 

“MPT Expo will be a great addition to the schedule of must-exhibit trade shows for NFPA members,” says Eric Lanke, President/CEO of NFPA. “Given the multi-technology focus of the show, the attendee base is sure to include a broad diversity of both mobile and industrial customers.” 

With such important industry partnerships like this one, both associations are dedicated to keeping a technically focused education program. Those in attendance will be offered a wide-ranging series of informative seminars taught by industry leaders and insiders. MPT Expo will be a convenient and affordable destination to advance one’s knowledge of the industry, hone technical skills, and dive into the latest research and technical developments. Additional information about MPT Expo and new association partnerships will be released over the next few months. 

Hundreds of companies have already signed up for exhibit space on the show floor, including industry leaders EMAG LLC, Gleason Corporation, Klingelnberg, Kapp Group, Mitsubishi Heavy Industry America, and others.
