The first and best choice

The first and best choice for economic information involving the fluid power industry is the Industry & Economic Outlook Conference (IEOC) presented by the National Fluid Power Association.  We have a post on our Mobile Hydraulic Tips website about the event.

I often quote the information that I learn at the Conference when asked "So what do you hear about the economy?"  No forecasting is perfect but the format at IEOC allows for many great view points about what lies ahead and why.


For more information about the upcoming event, visit the NFPA website.  The Conference will take place at the familiar Westin Chicago North Shore in Wheeling, IL on August 10-12.  Familiar because it has been held there many times in the past.

The event kicks off with the annual IEOC Invitational Golf Tournament at the Chevy Chase Country Club, a public course,  also in Wheeling.  Proceeds from the golf tournament benefit the NFPA Education and Technology Foundation.  You can sign up on the NFPA website for golf also.
