PTDA Industry Summit On Tap for October

In Atlanta, PTDA expects 550 power transmission/motion control attendees for its first live confernce since 2019.

The Power Transmission Distributors Association (PTDA) announced on Tuesday that its PTDA 2021 Industry Summit will take place in Atlanta, Georgia on October 20-23. PTDA expects 550 delegates in the power transmission/motion control (PT/MC) industry will attend the conference.

The Industry Summit, which will be the first and largest in-person gathering of PT/MC delegates since 2019, will include “cross-channel networking, shared learning and collaborative experiences.”

“I am so thrilled to be able to attend the PTDA Industry Summit in person this year,” said PTDA President Brian Davis, who is also co-CEO of B & D Industrial. “After 18 months of navigating the COVID-19 pandemic, it’s clearer than ever that building industry relationships and gaining insight into the trends peers are experiencing are of far greater value than the price of admission to the Industry Summit. On top of that, the fact that my home city of Atlanta is hosting PTDA this year makes the opportunity to come together even more exciting!”

The signature event of the PTDA Industry Summit will be the Manufacturer-Distributor Idea Exchange (MD-IDEX), which is a forum that brings together distributor and manufacturer executives for high-level discussions on market strategies and issues.

It will also include a private, reserved meeting space that will allow channel partners to engage in small group discussions.
