If you are involved in the acquisition of technology (whether your direct role is machine
design, maintenance, purchasing or management), trade shows still provide one of the best
ways to evaluate options, learn about the latest technology and find solutions to problems.
The American Gear Manufacturers Association has evolved its trade show.
What was formerly Gear Expo is now the Motion + Power Technology Expo
(MPT Expo), an event intended to represent the entire motion and power
transmission supply chain. As part of the expansion of the show’s scope,
AGMA has partnered with the NFPA (National Fluid Power Association) to
include a fluid power pavilion and additional educational sessions.

miss Gear Expo (Oct. 24-26 in Columbus, OH) this year.
