2021 NFPA Annual Conference
February 24-26, 2021
Virtual Delivery

It’s time to start planning for the 2021 NFPA Annual Conference, one of the top industry networking events for the fluid power community. The 2021 conference will be taking place online,* but it won’t lack interactivity. Thanks to an innovative online platform, NFPA is offering one of the most unique and effective virtual event experiences available.

The 2021 conference will take place from February 24 – 26, 2021 and will include morning sessions that feature a forecast by Alan Beaulieu of ITR Economics, presentations by past favorite Peter Zeihan on geopolitics, and Harry Kraemer of the Kellogg School of Management on leading in disruptive times…plus more to be announced. Registrants will interact with the presenters and can also participate in virtual networking sessions and committee meetings each afternoon. Registration for the conference will open later in November.

As always, the event is set to provide the opportunity to learn from engaging presentations, make connections during committee meetings and network with industry peers in a relaxed setting.

*In addition to the virtual event, NFPA is offering an optional in-person opportunity called The Power of Association Event on the same dates, February 24-26, 2021. This networking event will take place at the Arizona Biltmore in Phoenix, Arizona. Attendees will be able to watch Annual Conference presentations and interact with speakers from their hotel rooms each morning, come together for networking lunches and receptions, and gather informally at the property, which includes an on-site golf course. The Power of Association Event will be carefully managed to adhere to the latest COVID-19 regulations.
