Chicago, Ill., Mar. 15, 2001 — The Power Transmission Distributors Association’s (PTDA) upcoming annual convention–a networking and educational event for the power transmission/motion control (PT/MC) industry–will be held Oct. 4-6, 2001, at the Atlanta Marriott Marquis in Atlanta, Georgia.

The PTDA 2001 Convention will offer a unique mix of educational sessions, opportunities to meet with potential business partners and peer networking. Note: The convention is open only to PTDA members and qualified prospective members.

This year’s theme, Focus On Growth: Trends and Tools for Success, is designed to provide companies with tactics and strategies to help grow their companies.

Sessions will include in depth presentations on potential growth markets, investing in tools to effectively enhance business operations and how distributors and manufacturers can team up to deliver value to end users. Other highlights include the popular manufacturer-distributor idea exchange (MD-IDEX), an independent distributor forum on “Finding the Money to Grow,” scheduled time for private business meetings and an optional golf outing.


Reorganized to retain its traditional business and educational content while improving attendees return on investment, a revised schedule is intended to minimize time out of the office and maximize delivered value.
