August 16 – 18, 2021
Hilton Chicago/Oak Brook Hills Resort
Oak Brook, IL
The Industry & Economic Outlook Conference (IEOC) is NFPA’s highly anticipated economic event for everyone in the fluid power supply chain – NFPA members and non-members alike are all invited to attend. The 2021 event will return to an in-person format at the Hilton Chicago/Oak Brook Hills Resort, August 16 – 18, 2021.
As always, the event will focus on the opportunities and threats associated with the economy as they relate specifically to the fluid power industry. Industry experts will share the analyses, hard data and critical insights fluid power business leaders need to translate economic trends into competitive intelligence and successfully plan for the future.
The conference will feature topics including networking in a digital world, the U.S. market outlook, and the fluid power industry forecast. There will also be several options for breakout sessions that focus on mobile and industrial markets like metalworking, construction machinery and cybersecurity — plus more.
The IEOC is also a great opportunity for fluid power professionals to connect in and out of the sessions. The IEOC Invitational Golf Tournament, exclusive Future Leader activities, networking receptions/meals and committee meetings all provide unique opportunities to make the right connections for your company to get ahead.
Registration for the conference will open in early June.
