The world of fluid power is already making its plans to gather at IFPE 2017, the leading international exposition and technical conference dedicated to the integration of fluid power with other technologies for power transmission and motion control applications. But one event currently being organized and hosted by the NFPA will truly bring the world of fluid power together for information sharing and education.
The World Fluid Power Summit will be held on Thursday, March 9, 2017, beginning at 12:00 noon, at the Las Vegas Convention Center, and will include lunch for all attendees. Industry and association leaders from more than a dozen countries—including Australia, Canada, China, Germany, India, Italy, Japan, Mexico, Taiwan, Turkey, the United Kingdom, and the United States—are expected to attend, with a representative from each country making a presentation on fluid power market trends in their home markets.
Additional presenters have also been invited, seeking engagement with the world fluid power community on important standardization initiatives and the growth of worldwide fluid power certification programs.
