EPTDA hosts another successful industry event in Rome - welcoming over 250 PT/MC industry leaders
EPTDA (European Power Transmission Distributors Association), the leading association for the industrial distribution channel in Europe, welcomed over 250 participants from around the world to meet at its 2009 Annual Convention in Rome. Despite the ongoing economic uncertainties, the association welcomed almost the same number of companies as 2008, further re-establishing the confidence in the economy and the inevitable growth of the Power Transmission and Motion Control (PTMC) industry.
The Annual Convention theme "Excellence in Relationships" featured some of the most distinguished motivational speakers and business leaders, including Mr Miles Hilton-Barber, the blind adventurer and Dr J. P. Pawliw-Fry, an author, columnist and performance coach to Olympic athletes and business leaders.
EPTDA also welcomed 10 new member companies, 8 non-member companies and over 20 international guests to the Rome Convention from all over the world including Japan, South Africa, United States of America and Canada.
"EPTDA's Annual Conventions are the one and only executive meeting platform for decision makers of the European PT/MC Industry," comments Mr Manfred Beitel, President of EPTDA. "The success of our 2009 Annual Convention in Rome and a large participation once again proves that our association is the leading organization
committed to adding value to the business and success of our member companies," adds Mr Beitel.
EPTDA's mission is to advance distribution and strengthen members to be successful, profitable and competitive in a changing market environment. EPTDA takes pride in being a premier community for qualified members fostering open dialogue and mutual respect; acting with integrity, honesty and fairness and ensuring continuous growth and learning.
"EPTDA offers the most cost effective meeting platform for Distributors and Manufacturers. Where else can you meet nearly 300 PT/MC professionals, business owners and key decision makers under one roof?" claims Mr Hans Hanegreefs, Executive Vice President, EPTDA.
