J. W. Marriott Desert Springs, Palm Desert, California. The theme for this year’s Industry Summit—“Working Without a Net?”— reflects how, despite all of the communications bombarding us daily, it takes collaboration to find the right information to move your company forward. Fortunately for those in the power transmission/motion control distribution channel, the PTDA Industry Summit offers a support net through the extensive opportunities to discuss business issues and develop innovative solutions. On average, more than 550 delegates—the industry’s top executives representing 240 companies—will network and conduct business at this year’s Industry Summit. In addition to being a cost-efficient and powerful connection hub, the emphasis on current events and economic trends can provide you with the net you need to be more secure in your plans for your business moving into 2014 and beyond. Highlights include educational workshops, peer networking forums, one-on-one meetings and an optional golf outing benefiting the PTDA Foundation.
