PTDA Industry Summit registration opens

The Power Transmission Distributors Association has opened advanced registration for its PTDA 2018 Industry Summit to be held at The Broadmoor, October 17-20, 2018, in Colorado Springs, Colo.

More than 600 delegates, representing more than 230 PTDA distributor and manufacturer member companies in the power transmission/motion control (PT/MC) industry, are expected for cross-channel networking, shared learning and collaborative experiences at this year’s Industry Summit, themed Ascend the Summit. Elevate Connections. Those registering before August 10, 2018, receive a $100 discount.

The PTDA 2018 Industry Summit offers four keynote caliber speakers: Jay Samit on personal disruption; Kevin Ashton on the Industrial Internet of Things; Chad Hymas on creating mobility and strength; and Alan Beaulieu on the economy. New for 2018 will be an exclusive distributors-only workshop, applying the results of the recently completed groundbreaking research—PTDA Voice of the End Customer—to distributor value propositions.

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

Additional networking opportunities abound at the PTDA 2018 Industry Summit. From receptions and networking lunches to a fun and interactive après-ski Closing Event, participants will garner takeaways to use right away. For more information, visit
