More than 300 exhibitors from across the supply chain are expected to fill the show floor, and subject matter experts will be presenting in 45-minute sessions in the conference’s business and technology tracks.
The new Motion + Power Technology Expo (MPT Expo), formerly Gear Expo, will offer a two-track seminar series called the MPT Conference during the inaugural trade show event taking place October 15-17, 2019, at the Cobo Center in Detroit, Michigan. The trade show and conference is expected to bring together more than 4,000 professionals looking for technical solutions from across the mechanical power transmission, fluid power and electrical drive industries for three days of educational sessions, networking and a full exhibit hall.
MPT Expo is owned and operated by The American Gear Manufacturers Association (AGMA) and co-sponsored by the National Fluid Power Association (NFPA).
More than 300 exhibitors from across the supply chain are expected to fill the show floor, including gear companies, machine tools suppliers and electric drive manufacturers. NFPA will host a 5,000-square-foot pavilion within the show, featuring 50 exhibitors.
Concerning the conference, AGMA President Matthew Croson says, “We are working closely with the NFPA on the conference for MPT Expo and are pleased to announce that we will be offering sessions focused on the hottest topics, including cybersecurity, supply chain, 3D printing, robotics and much more.”
Subject matter experts will be presenting in 45-minute sessions in the conference’s various tracks. Topics in the “Know Your Business” track will include cybersecurity, blockchain, workforce and supply chain. Presentations in the “Be Prepared for the Future” track will include Internet of Things, metal 3D printing, robotics and electric drive technology.
The MPT Expo will also be the site of the AGMA Fall Technical Meeting along with short-course technical seminars from both AGMA and NFPA. AGMA is also planning two focused events, one for young professionals and a women’s breakfast with industry speakers.
