Registration is now open for the 2019 Industry & Economic Outlook Conference. 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.
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 critical 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.
AGMA’s portion of the larger event will continue to provide attendees with economic conditions for the gear industry, the general economy and end-user markets from IHS Markit. NFPA members and AGMA members alike will have the ability to attend both the NFPA and AGMA events, which will help them gain a fuller understanding of key sectors affecting both mechanical and fluid power industries.
