NFPA’s Annual Conference has a decades-long history, and the 2023 event will continue to grow the conference with the implementation of several new features. In addition to the exclusive opportunity for the fluid power industry’s top executives to connect and converse, there are many additional benefits for conference attendees. From panel discussions to the golf fundraiser, here’s what’s new for the 2023 Annual Conference:

Increased Educational Content

The 2023 conference will feature an extended schedule of fresh content both Wednesday and Thursday afternoons to better equip our industry’s executives for the year ahead. This new speaker line-up includes a presentation from Matt Ranen of Kellogg on Placing Strategic Mets in the Face of Uncertainty. We also have two discussion panels this year focusing on the Future of Industrial Technology and Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion. View the conference schedule for more details.

BBQ Lunch & Games

Spouse/Guest registrants will have access to all meals as well as additional special spouse/guest only activities. Enjoy the beautiful resort and spa, reconnect with friends and make new ones in sunny Ojai, California. Join us poolside on Wednesday, February 15th or let your inner creativity soar on Thursday the 16th! Enjoy one of many different projects available at the Open Studio reserved at the Artisan Cottage for NFPA spouses and guests exclusively from 10am-12pm.

NFPA Foundation Golf Fundraiser

Participants in NFPA’s Annual Conference golf tournament will now have the opportunity to give back while enjoying the picturesque greens of the onsite golf course. The 2023 NFPA Foundation Golf Fundraiser will feature all the casual networking and recreation of a typical golf tournament, but will now be structured to include donations to support the NFPA Foundation programs that encourage students to pursue careers in fluid power. Players can choose from three donor levels of various player perks and sponsorship opportunities when adding the golf experience to their conference registration.

Early Bird – Key Dates

Early Bird rates for conference registration will only last through January 6, so be sure to secure your spot and receive access to the latest features of the event while the reduced price lasts.
