The 2008 edition of the IFPE — International Exposition for Power Transmission will be the largest in the show’s history, with more than 115,000 net sq. ft. (10,684 sq m) of exhibit space already reserved with the show nine months away.
The last IFPE, held in 2005, also was a record-breaker, topping off at 111,471 net sq. ft. (10,359 sq m) of exhibits. IFPE 2008 will be held March 11 to 15, 2008, at the Las Vegas Convention Center in Las Vegas, Nev.
The triennial show is a leading international exposition and technical conference dedicated to power transmission and motion control technologies. It is co-located with the ConExpo-Con/AGG 2008 exposition, which targets the construction industries. IFPE attendee registration permits access to both shows.
IFPE 2008 exhibitors include longtime participants as well as new-to-the-show companies, from smaller specialized firms to global leaders, and from the United States, Canada and other countries worldwide.
The American Gear Manufacturers Association (AGMA) and the Power Transmission Distributors Association (PTDA) are sponsoring IFPE 2008 exhibit pavilions, and there will be an exhibit pavilion that highlights the expanded presence of sensors suppliers at the show. IFPE 2008 also will feature several international exhibit pavilions, including China, Italy, Spain and Taiwan.
“Attendees will be able to examine the latest equipment and technologies to help solve their design challenges, whether they involve hydraulics, pneumatics, electrical or mechanical processes. And, they’ll be able to discuss new developments and cost-effective applications with the industry’s leading suppliers,” stated IFPE Show Manager Sara Truesdale Mooney.
IFPE is geared to engineers and others involved in the design and manufacturing process in a variety of industry segments, including off-road equipment, fluid power/power transmission products, electrical machinery, instruments/controls, distribution, material handling, manufacturing/production automation/machine tools, automotive/commercial vehicles, engineering services, defense/aerospace and amusement entertainment technology.
IFPE is co-owned by the National Fluid Power Association (NFPA) along with the Association of Equipment Manufacturers (AEM), National Ready Mixed Concrete Association (NRMCA) and National Stone, Sand & Gravel Association (NSSGA).
