Groundbreaking Attendance Records at IFPE and CONEXPO-CON/Agg 2023

As the largest trade show in North America, it is no surprise that IFPE & CONEXPO-CON/Agg continued to grow in exhibitors and attendees. This year’s show reached a new high, attracting over 139,000 attendees from around the world. IFPE 2023 showcased the fluid power industry and featured many new innovative and cutting-edge fluid power technologies as demonstrated by the high traffic volume in South Hall. 

“IFPE also broke the record for the size of the show, with the greatest total square feet of exhibit space ever recorded, and the highest number of NFPA members among its exhibitors,” said Eric Lanke, President and CEO of the National Fluid Power Association. “The buzz on the show floor was intoxicating, with high quality attendees there to see the latest electrified and connected fluid power products.”

This year’s show also featured the Fluid Power Hour, allowing attendees and exhibitors an extra hour of networking with customers and colleagues.

Thank you again to all our members. Whether you showcased your products as an exhibitor or walked the show as an attendee, you played a vital role in growing the fluid power industry.

The next IFPE will be in Las Vegas, March 3-7, 2026. We look forward to seeing you there. Details to come soon.
