As co-owner of IFPE 2014, the National Fluid Power Association (NFPA) will have a strong presence at the event being held March 4-8, at the Las Vegas Convention Center. Co-located with CONEXPO-CON/AGG 2014, IFPE provides a perfect platform for interaction between engineers in fluid power and its key end-use markets.
A gathering place
The NFPA booth, centrally located on the IFPE show floor at S81730, will serve as a gathering place for NFPA members and other IFPE attendees. NFPA members are invited to conduct small, informal meetings with their industry colleagues and customers in the NFPA booth. A special reception will be held at the booth on Wednesday, March 5, at 5 p.m., immediately following the close of the show. All NFPA members, whether exhibiting or not, are invited to attend the reception.
A powerful forum for the fluid power industry
As an association with a diverse membership representing the full spectrum of the fluid power industry—hydraulic and pneumatic; large and small; manufacturer, supplier, distributor and educator—IFPE helps NFPA achieve its mission of strengthening the fluid power industry. Visit the NFPA booth to learn more about NFPA’s activities in support of its strategic plan, which is focused on realizing three visions:
- Workforce: Building and connecting members to an educated fluid power workforce.
- Technology: Promoting fluid power technology and fostering an innovative environment for the fluid power industry.
- Inclusiveness: Serving as a forum where all fluid power channel partners work together.
On Thursday, March 6, NFPA will host the 2014 International Fluid Power Summit, a meeting of leaders from fluid power associations across the globe, including key leaders from Canada, China, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, Mexico, Switzerland, Taiwan, Turkey and the United Kingdom. The Summit provides an opportunity for peer-to-peer discussion on a worldwide basis, with the aim of developing strategies that effectively address global challenges facing the fluid power industry. The same day, the NFPA will also host the International Statistics Committee meeting where representatives from fluid power associations around the world will meet to discuss international statistical/data collection programs.
