2020 Industry & Economic Outlook Conference
August 11-13, 2020
9:00 AM – 12:30 PM CT each day
Registration Opening June 23
NFPA’s 2020 Industry & Economic Outlook Conference (IEOC) is set to combine valuable networking opportunities with actionable economic insights, all on a virtual platform. There are many reasons this is NFPA’s most popular annual event, but the top takeaways that keep attendees coming back include:
- Industry Projections
Get mobile and industrial-specific information for key fluid power markets during the daily breakout sessions, plus industry-wide outlooks from IEOC favorites Eli Lustgarten and Alex Chausovsky.
- Global Economics
The lineup of popular economists address our industry’s concerns about today’s global marketplace with insights and projections. Get the best of ITR and Oxford Economics on Tuesday and Thursday.
Though the process of interacting with fellow attendees will look different, NFPA is working to ensure the crucial element of networking is not lost in the new platform. Networking opportunities will include question and answer chat with speakers, virtual rooms to discuss presentations and topics of interest with presenters and other members, and those attending will be able to see who else is attending and reach out to organize one-on-one online meet-ups.
- Content Variety
Offering a diverse range of presentations helps attendees get a thorough overview of what’s happening in the economy on multiple levels, ranging from geopolitical and pandemic effects on markets, to big picture economic trends and market-specific information. Multiple presentations each day means you have the option to choose the content most relevant to you.
- Ease of Access
A big benefit of migrating online is an increase in accessibility for our attendees. Members who may have previously been limited by travel and lodging expenses are now able to participate in this year’s event without accruing additional fees. The move to a virtual format also means lower overall registration fees.
