The Heavy Duty Manufacturers Association (HDMA), the Heavy Duty division of the Motor and Equipment Manufacturers Association (MEMA), has announced that Robert Bryce, energy expert, author, journalist and senior fellow of the Manhattan Institute, will speak at the 3rd annual Off-Highway Dialogue Conference to be held October 6, 2014, at the Donald E. Stephens Convention Center in Rosemont, IL. The conference is jointly presented by HDMA and SAE International, and immediately precedes SAE/COMVEC.
Bryce will share with the audience key insights from his new book “Smaller Faster Lighter Denser Cheaper,” including how the world has captured the headlong rush of Western culture's endless drive for ever better technology under strict environmental regulations. Bryce addresses some of the world's most daunting energy-related issues and clearly discusses what is being done to address these challenges. To continue the advancement of the developed and non-developed world, Bryce maintains that policymakers need to stop inhibiting progress and embrace the world’s most precious resource—energy. A master on energy density, he brilliantly brings examples of the heavy duty off highway equipment industry to life in his presentation.
Bryce is one of America’s most prominent energy journalists. His articles have appeared in numerous publications including the Wall Street Journal, New York Times, Atlantic Monthly, and Washington Post. A senior fellow at the Manhattan Institute, Bryce has spoken to dozens of professional and civic groups including the Cato Institute, Houston World Affairs Council, American Petroleum Institute, National Association of Attorneys General, and the Bruno Leoni Institute in Rome. He has also lectured at numerous schools including University of North Carolina, National Defense University, Texas A&M University, Texas Tech University, University of Calgary, and the University of Texas.
HDMA’s Off-Highway Dialogue Conference was developed for, and is attended by, the off-highway industry’s executive leadership from the commercial vehicle supplier, OEM executive, financial analyst and media communities.
