The National Fluid Power Assn. (NFPA) and American Gear Manufacturers Assn. (AGMA) recently announced a joint event to be held next fall. The Power + Motion Technology Expo (MPT Expo) will be held Oct. 15 to 17, 2019 in Detroit’s Cobo Hall. Formerly Gear Expo, MPT Expo will bring together a wide-range of professionals within the mechanical power transmission, fluid power, and electrical drive industries for three days of educational sessions, networking and a full 80,000 sq. ft. exhibit hall featuring industry-leading companies and their offerings. More than 4,000 attendees will have access to these exhibits, plus a wide-ranging series of seminars taught by industry leaders and insiders. Technologies to be addressed at the event include all power transmission solutions: pneumatic, hydraulic, electrical, and mechanical, plus important related technologies—such as sensors, controls, contamination assessment and control, preventive and predictive maintenance, and others.
“MPT Expo will be a great addition to the schedule of must-exhibit trade shows for NFPA members,” said Eric Lanke, President/CEO of NFPA. “Given the multi-technology focus of the show, the attendee base is sure to include a broad diversity of both mobile and industrial customers.”
The annual AGMA Fall Technical Meeting will be held in conjunction with the Expo, which will also be co-located with the ASM Heat Treating Society Conference and Exposition.
