Making the Right Connections in 2016

At Fluid Power World magazine and digital network, we are very actively involved in the coverage of hose, fittings, hose assemblies, quick couplings, and all matters involving fluid conveyance as it relates to fluid power technology.  We cover the subject extensively in our Hose Assembly Tips website



and with our Hose Assembly Tips e-newsletter as well.


We are also a member and supporter of NAHAD, the Association for Hose and Accessory Distribution.


The 2016 NAHAD Annual Convention is scheduled to begin on April 29th at the Broadmoor Hotel in Colorado Springs and they have a very interesting and action-packed schedule.  The open festivities actually begin on Saturday, April 30 with opening remarks by current NAHAD President, Jim Reilly.   

The schedule continues with a very informative session titled Market Signals:  What the Financial Markets are Telling Us presented by Peter Ricchiuti of Tulane University.  This is a tricky subject these days of financial turbulence.


Other highlights of the first day of the Annual Convention include speed networking where delegates get to know each other better, a welcome reception, and the Gala Dinner and George Carver Award Presentation.  At that dinner, a special presentation will be given by Actress, Model, Author, and World Class Snowboarder, Amy Purdy.

That is a great schedule for just the first day and add to that a panel discussion of industry leaders moderated by Tom Gale of MDM Analytics.  That is a full day!  For more information, visit the NAHAD website.
