The new Motion + Power Technology Expo (MPT Expo), formerly Gear Expo, has announced its inaugural event in October 2019. This unique trade show and conference, will bring 4,000 professionals looking for technical solutions from across the Mechanical Power Transmission, Fluid Power and Electrical Drive industries for three days of educational sessions, networking, and a full exhibit hall featuring industry leading companies. Motion + Power Technology Expo will take place at the Cobo Center in Detroit, MI, October 15-17, 2019 and is owned and operated by TheAmerican Gear Manufacturers Association (AGMA).

The new Motion + Power Technology Expo will feature 80,000 net square feet of space, and include 300+ exhibitors from across the supply chain including gear companies, machine tools suppliers and electric drive solutions.  The National Fluid Power Association (NFPA) will be a co-sponsor of the show, and will host a 5,000 set square foot Pavilion within the show, featuring 50 exhibitors.

"We are excited to transform Gear Expo into the MPT Expo with our partners including the National Fluid Power Association (NFPA). This is much more than a name change; through MPT Expo, AGMA is transforming the legacy of Gear Expo to include solutions from the mechanical, fluid and electric industries," said Matthew Croson, president, AGMA. "By creating a wider focus, exhibitors will have the opportunity to connect with more buyers from a wide variety of industries, and attendees will be presented with all three power transmission solution sets in one place. MPT Expo will be a great place to see and test out all of the latest advances in the industry."

With such important industry partnerships like the one created with NFPA, both associations are dedicated to keeping a technically-focused education program. Those in attendance will be offered a wide-ranging series of informative seminars taught by industry leaders and insiders. MPT Expo will be a convenient and affordable destination to advance one's knowledge of the industry, hone technical skills, and dive into the latest research and technical developments.  Additional information about MPT Expo and new association partnerships will be released over the next few months.

Hundreds of companies have already signed up for exhibit space on the show floor, including industry leaders Timken Power Systems, Meritor, EMAG LLC, Gleason Corporation, Klingelnberg, Kapp Group, Mitsubishi Heavy Industry America, and others.
