NFPA’s 2021 Industry & Economic Outlook Conference (IEOC) combines valuable networking opportunities with actionable economic insights. NFPA expects the conference will continue to be our most attended annual event, especially after over a year of limited face-to-face networking. There are many reasons to attend the event, but the top takeaways that keep attendees coming back include:

  1. Industry Projections
    The conference is set to provide a variety of in-depth forecasts about key fluid power customer markets. Industry-wide outlooks from IEOC favorites Eli Lustgarten and Alex Chausovsky will provide attendees the information they need to make informed business decisions. 
  2. 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 Tuesday and Wednesday morning. 
  3. Networking
    As the best-attended NFPA event of the year, attendees can take advantage of the opportunity to network with industry decision-makers from across the fluid power supply chain. Special activities include the NFPA Foundation Golf Fundraiser, Power of Association Reception and Dinner, networking breakfasts and lunches, and council or committee meetings. 
  4. Technology & Business Information
    Presentations help attendees discover the influence of technological and business factors that are likely to impact the industry for years to come. Learn about “Cyber Security & IoT Technology” from Donna Ritson, “Networking/Relationship Building in a Virtual World” from David Nour, and more. 
  5. Strategic Planning Solutions
    The event’s timing, lineup of experts and economic content make it a complete strategic planning resource.
