IFPE 2020
March 10-14, 2020
Las Vegas Convention Center
Las Vegas, Nevada

Whether you are coming to IFPE 2020 to show off your company’s latest fluid power technologies in an exhibit or to walk the show floor to explore potential business opportunities, there are a number of ways to take those efforts a step further.

  1. Make the Right Connections: For the first time ever, IFPE is hosting a networking reception for executives and engineers spanning the entire IFPE show floor. Taking place Wednesday, March 11 from 4 – 6 pm, this event will feature networking, free food, drinks, and Vegas-style entertainment. Show management expects thousands to attend, so you won’t want to miss this opportunity to meet other fluid power professionals as well as potential customers.[Tip: Invite your prospects and customers to the party and plan to keep your booth open an extra hour for the event.]
  2. Stay on Top of Fluid Power Research Trends. When mapping out your IFPE schedule, be sure to keep the lunch hours on March 11, 12, and 13 open for the IFPE Research Symposium. Over these three days, the NFPA will present a program that showcases the latest fluid power research being performed at U.S. universities and in our national laboratories. Anyone interested in research and development projects of importance to the fluid power industry is welcome to attend.[Tip: Check out the presentation lineup and register for the event here.]
  3. Get More Out of Your NFPA Membership: Take advantage of a private meeting area for small, informal meetings with industry colleagues and customers, meet with NFPA staff members, and learn more about NFPA member benefits at the NFPA booth #S81530.[Tip: The meeting room in the NFPA booth is available on a first come, first served basis. If you would like to reserve a specific time slot, please reach out to Katrina Schwarz at kschwarz@nfpa.com to coordinate.]
