NFPA’s 2015 IEOC Breaks Attendance Record, Stresses the Importance of Economics and Networking

NFPA’s 2015 Industry & Economic Outlook Conference (IEOC) exemplified the importance of economics, industry, technology and networking with an excellent line-up of speakers and another record-breaking attendance of 322 individuals. Members and non-members alike received valuable insights into the future for the fluid power supply chain. Their feedback identified the diverse speaker and topic content, exposure to global market information and multiple networking opportunities as highlights of this year’s IEOC.  Comments included…

“I am really impressed with the high quality of the speakers and the meeting overall.  This event stands head and shoulders above all others serving the industry.”
Tim Reynolds, Tribute, Inc.

“Keep up the good work, NFPA!  Well organized, great networking, good use of technology, and the audience keeps on growing every year!”
John Kumler, Linde Hydraulics

“Overall, I believe the best collection of speakers and quality of presentations that I have experienced at this conference.”
Steve Johnson, Danfoss

NFPA’s 2015 IEOC Invitational Golf Tournament filled Chevy Chase Country Club with 115 golfers marking the 9th year of this fundraising event.  A few raindrops and even a lightning delay did not keep this group from having a great time.  A record number of sponsors and 50/50 raffle sales marked a solid return for NFPA’s Education and Technology Foundation.

Thank you to everyone who attended this year’s event, and we hope to see you at next year’s 2016 Industry & Economic Outlook Conference and IEOC Invitational Tournament scheduled for August 15-17, 2016 at the Westin Chicago North Shore and Chevy Chase Country Club in Wheeling, Illinois.

Questions and comments concerning this event can be directed to Eric Armstrong at or 414-778-3372.
