PTDA Announces More Details for 2022 Industry Summit

The Power Transmission Distributors Association will convene for its 2022 Industry Summit in Nashville Oct. 27-29.

The Power Transmission Distributors Association announced more details for its 2022 Industry Summit, which is scheduled to take place Oct 27-29 in Nashville.

The signature event of the Industry Summit — the Manufacturer-Distributor Idea Exchange (MD-IDEX) — has been increased to two days, PTDA said. MD-IDEX is a “time- and cost-effective forum bringing together distributor and manufacturer executives for high-level discussions on market strategies and issues,” PTDA said. “Distributor and manufacturer members alike laud MD-IDEX as one of the best face-to-face cross-channel business programs with a measurable ROI for participants.”

More than 500 delegates in the power transmission/motion control industry are expected to attend, representing over 200 PTDA distributor and manufacturer companies.

The event is expected to include keynote presentations — including economist Dr. Alan Beaulieu — as well as two sessions presented by PT WORK Force, an initiative of the PTDA Foundation, which will “address ways employers can circumvent forces hindering their efforts to attract and retain top talent,” PTDA said.

Former NFL quarterback Joe Theismann is scheduled to give the closing keynote address.

The Industry Summit themed is “Amp Up,” and the event is expected to offer cross-channel networking, shared learning and collaborative experiences, PTDA announced.

“Nashville is a city radiating with energy and I’m excited for PTDA to capitalize on its momentum during the 2022 Industry Summit.” says PTDA President JP Bouchard, vice president, General Bearing Service Inc. “This year’s program has been ‘amped up’ to provide even greater value to attendees, offering more opportunities for business engagement and growth. With dynamic presentations delivering key insights on our challenges like workforce recruitment and the ever-changing economy, the industry’s top PT/MC executive will walk away with not just information, but actionable takeaways.”
