NFPA to present advanced hydraulics conference at iVT Expo 2024

The National Fluid Power Association (NFPA) has entered into a partnership agreement with UKi Media & Events to convene an advanced hydraulics conference for off-highway vehicle and fluid power engineers at iVT Expo, to be held August 21 and 22, 2024, in Chicago, Illinois.

NFPA will plan and deliver a two-day conference, running in parallel with the trade show, that will offer iVT Expo attendees and exhibitors information on the latest advances in hydraulic technology. Some of the sessions envisioned for the program will focus on the role of hydraulics in key vehicle objectives like thermal management, energy efficiency, noise reduction, preventative maintenance, functional safety and autonomous operation.

“NFPA member companies represent the cutting-edge technologies that vehicle engineers increasingly need to incorporate into their machine systems and designs. Combining that technical content with hands-on demonstrations of their technologies on the iVT Expo show floor will provide a unique educational experience for their primary customers.”

NFPA president/CEO Eric Lanke

Tony Robinson is the chairman of UKi Media & Events, the organizer of iVT Expo. Commenting on the partnership with NFPA, he said, “We are honored to have now been chosen to partner with the National Fluid Power Association. These are interesting times when electrification and automation are simultaneously both drivers and complexities in the off-highway vehicle industry and we warmly welcome NFPA to our event.

Full conference details will be available in May 2024.
