Anticipate, Innovate, Collaborate

These are the words used to describe the 2015 NAHAD 31st Annual Meeting and Convention.  Of course NAHAD is the professional trade association for hose and accessories distribution.  With hydraulic and pneumatic hose and assemblies being such a major part of all fluid power systems, Fluid Power World will be there.

 

This year's event will be held at the Lowes Miami Beach Hotel on April 23-27.  Anticipate refers to the economist who will shed some light on the upcoming year for the industry.  Alan Beaulieu is that economist and if you have read my blog before, you know that I am a fan of Alan.  His insights are a great foundation on which to plan your year.

The Innovate comes from the presentation scheduled by futurist Jack Uldrich titled Foresight 20/20:  Ten Trends in Transforming Tomorrow.  Jack is a very well regarded keynote speaker on future trends, emerging technologies, innovation, change management, and leadership.

The collaborate comes from the many opportunities to interact and network with other industry professionals that always take place at NAHAD Conventions.  For more information, visit the NAHAD website.
