The National Fluid Power Association’s 2020 Industry & Economic Outlook Conference is fast approaching — there are several reasons to register if you haven’t already. Taking place over the course of three half-day, online sessions August 11-13, 2020, this year’s conference is set to not only deliver hard data and expert analysis for everyone in the fluid power supply chain, but also offer attendees the networking and tools they need to build their organization’s future.
While being conducted virtually this year, conference attendees looking to build and maintain their networks will have a number of innovative and convenient networking opportunities to make connections with people from across the fluid power supply chain.
Networking opportunities include:
• A personalized profile: Increase your own and your company’s visibility and access a database of other attendee details.
• One-on-one communication: Connect instantly with key industry players via private chat rooms and direct video call capabilities.
• Public Chats: Begin a dialogue by discussing content in specific sessions or introduce yourself to other users.
• Live Q&A: During the pre-recorded webinar sessions, get involved in the content as the speaker responds to your questions and comments in real time using the chat feed.
• “Ask the Speaker” Rooms: Continue the conversation from your favorite presentations by meeting with speakers through designated group video sessions.
• IEOC Networking Rooms: If you’d rather focus on forming connections with other attendees, you can join a community networking room and continue to mingle via video call.
In addition to targeted networking, the conference content makes it one of the best resources of strategic planning solutions available to the fluid power industry, now more than ever.
