“The EPTDA-PTDA Joint Pavilion at IAMD Hannover Messe Fair continues our tradition and commitment to provide our global membership base with cost-effective, concentrated and highly visible presence at the biggest industry fair in the world. We are part of an industry where brand awareness and reputation is key to business successes. As the two leading associations of power transmission and motion industry worldwide, we aim to bring the most influential leaders together to facilitate an open dialogue, mutual respect, integrity, honesty, fairness, continuous growth and continuous learning,” said Hans Hanegreefs, EPTDA Executive VicePresident.
Members of both associations will benefit from great brand awareness as one united global community exhibiting one united booth, as leaders of the international PT/MC industry.
