Ex-US Navy man to chair IFPE 2020


The International Fluid Power Exposition (IFPE) has announced an ex-US military serviceman to head up the next show’s management committee.

Hydraforce’s global marketing manager, David Price, who served in the US Navy for nine years, will chair IFPE 2020’s voluntary group of industry executives responsible for planning the event.

“I look forward to this new role and working with the very talented members of the IFPE managing committee to oversee another successful exhibition that provides real value to the exhibitors, attendees and the entire industry,” said Price.

Price held numerous positions in the Navy in the electronics systems management and training fields. He joined HydraForce in 2008 and has been instrumental in growing its brand image around the world. Price has served on past IFPE management committees as well as chairing its marketing committee.

“David has been an active and enthusiastic participant in IFPE planning and contributed greatly to the show’s success,” said John Rozum, IFPE show director. “We are very pleased to welcome him as 2020 chair.”

IFPE 2020, which takes place in three years’ time on March 10-14 at the Las Vegas Convention Center in Las Vegas, Nevada, focuses on the latest fluid power, power transmission and motion control technologies.

“Technology and innovation will continue to drive the integration of fluid power with other technologies for power transmission and motion control applications,” said Eric Lanke, president and CEO of the National Fluid Power Association (NFPA) and IFPE co-owner.

“IFPE provides a dynamic global resource for industry professionals to keep up with the latest advances and interact with the fluid power community.”
