With a newly improved networking approach, the December 3 NFPA/FPIC Regional Conference is already set to be one of the most valuable fluid power events of the year.

But the upgraded interactivity is not the only reason to attend the event. The exclusive presentations will provide insight on a topic more valuable now than ever before: “Fluid Power Business Adaptability in a VUCA (Volatile, Uncertain, Complex, Ambiguous) Business World.”

Register* by November 30 to access the content you can’t find anywhere else. You can expect our expert speakers to offer relevant, applicable and practical information in the following presentations:

  • Buckley Brinkman, Executive Director and CEO of Wisconsin Center for Manufacturing and Productivity, will moderate a diverse panel on manufacturing during COVID-19 times. This panel includes state leaders of the National Institute of Standards and Technology Manufacturing Extension Partnership (MEP) National Network and will provide answers to questions from a unique vantage point, diving deep into topics like supply chains and onshoring, Industry 4.0, cybersecurity’s impact and the resources available to face an uncertain future.

    The MEP National Network helps small and medium-sized manufacturers across the country remain competitive, harness trends and implement new technology in practical ways through its National Network of 51 state-centered Centers. View agenda for panelist details.

  • Mike Terzo P.E., CEO and CTO of Terzo Power Systems, LLC, will share his insights on the impact of motion control electrification and the need for traditional fluid power sales channels and methods to adapt.
