The 2021 Industry & Economic Outlook Conference marked NFPA’s successful return to in-person events. The conference, which was well attended by both members and non-members, showcased presentations from some of the fluid power industry’s top experts as well as provided an opportunity for fluid power professionals to reconnect after months away from the traditional conference experience. For those who were unable to join us at the Hilton Chicago/Oak Brook Hills Resort & Conference Center, NFPA also hosted an online stream of select presentations each morning. This hybrid structure expanded access to our members in addition to offering a platform that all attendees (in-person & virtual) can benefit from.
The 2021 IEOC Portal, hosted on a third-party platform called Pheedloop, will house slides and presentation recordings from all event sessions including topics like global macro trends, market forecasts, a fluid power industry forecast and much more.
Member attendees have received login credentials via email (look for the sender firstname.lastname@example.org) which they can use to access conference content for a limited time.
For anyone who was unable to attend the conference, or for those who attended and are looking for the next opportunity to learn and network, NFPA hosts events throughout the year including Quarterly Conferences and our Annual Conference. View our website to learn more.
