Las Vegas, NV — The American Gear Manufacturers Association (AGMA) will sponsor an exhibit pavilion for its members at the 2008 IFPE – International Exposition for Power Transmission. AGMA will also promote the show as an IFPE 2008 supporting organization.

IFPE 2008 will be held March 11-15, 2008, at the Las Vegas Convention Center in Las Vegas, Nev., and is expected to be North America’s largest exposition and technical conference for hydraulic, pneumatic, electrical and mechanical power transmission components, systems and controls.

AGMA members primarily manufacture gears, gearboxes, flexible couplings or mechanical power transmission equipment or components; supply machine tools, cutting tools and other capital equipment to the gear manufacturing industry; or offer supplies or services such as gear blanks, lubricants, heat-treating and grinding.

“We welcome AGMAs participation in the show. Industry partnerships such as this strengthen IFPEs scope and are a key to its success,” stated Linda Western, executive director of the National Fluid Power Association (NFPA), IFPE’s co-owner.

“Our members products and services are a good fit with IFPE and our exhibit pavilion at the show is one more way we can offer them exposure to potential customers,” added Kurt Medert, vice-president of AGMA.

IFPE 2008 is co-located with CONEXPO-CON/AGG 2008, which is expected to be the largest international gathering place in 2008 for the construction industries.

The shows are expected to attract more than 125,000 visitors from around the world. For more information on attending or exhibiting, phone 414-298-4141 or toll-free 800-867-6060, fax 414-272-2672 or visit www.ifpe.com or www.conexpoconagg.com.
