NFPA Looking for Disney Magic

We are excited to announce that NFPA’s 2018 Annual Conference will be held February 20-22 in Orlando at the Four Seasons Resort at Disney. The Disney Theme Parks are a veritable showcase of fluid power applications with hydraulics powering many of their most popular rides and animatronics featured in almost every attraction.

Because we feel our members are the best resource, we are asking you to put us in touch with any of your contacts at Disney—or Universal—who would consider speaking at our conference and offering a behind-the-scenes tour of fluid power in action.

With your help this conference will be the best ever!
