Last fall, the National Fluid Power Assn. (NFPA) and American Gear Manufacturers Assn. (AGMA) announced a new cooperative event called the Motion + Power Technology Expo (MPT Expo)—a trade show, dual-track MPT Conference, and short-course technical seminars. The event is scheduled to take place Oct.15-17 at Detroit’s Cobo Center.
NFPA will host a Fluid Power Pavilion within the show. The entire show will feature exhibitors representing mechanical power transmission, bearings, machine tools, and electric drives and controls. For additional information about exhibiting or details regarding the new show, please e-mail Erica Halmstad. Click here to receive updates and notification when registration opens on April 1.
The trade show and conference are expected to draw more than 4,000 professionals looking for technical solutions from across the fluid power, mechanical power transmission, and electrical drive industries. Motion + Power Technology Expo is owned and operated by the American Gear Manufacturers Association (AGMA) and co-sponsored by the NFPA.
