Following the success of the BVAA’s inaugural outing at the Fluid Power & Systems exhibition in 2016, the Association has signed-up for next year’s show, which will again be staged at the NEC, Birmingham from 10 to 12 April 2018; providing guidance, advice and updates to attendees.

The BVAA’s stand will feature within Fluid Power & Systems’ ‘Valves & Actuators Zone’ and Offshore Energy Zone.

The exhibition and conference is the only event in the UK that is 100 per cent focused on a comprehensive range of hydraulic and pneumatic equipment, together with products that facilitate better electromechanic system design and application for improved process automation, control and monitoring.

BVAA Director and CEO, Rob Bartlett, commented: “Fluid power is a critically important power and motion controlrelated technology segment for the valve industry and its end-users and OEMs. Therefore, many BVAA members understandably specify, manufacture, supply or use fluid power-related technology. Exhibiting for the first time at Fluid Power & Systems in 2016 proved to be a very worthwhile exercise for us, and we had no hesitation in signing-up again for 2018; recognising that the show offers clear benefits and synergies to the Association and its members. Indeed, one of our main goals at the exhibition will once again be to represent our members and bring their products and services to the attention of the very wide customer base that the show attracts. The Association will also have the opportunity to promote our independent training courses, Guidelines, publications and technical support.”

“We are also delighted that BVAA Members will benefit from a special pricing structure – an added benefit of BVAA Membership!”

Ryan Fuller, commercial director of Fluid Power & Systems organiser, DFA Media, commented: “We look forward to welcoming the BVAA again as an exhibitor at Fluid Power & Systems next year. There is much synergy between the visitor profile of our shows and what the BVAA membership offers in terms of product and services within a variety of industry sectors. We are confident that the BVAA and its members will again gain major benefit from the show, and also make a valuable contribution to the event.”

Co-located exhibitions

Fluid Power & Systems will again be colocated with Air-Tech, Drives and Controls and Plant & Asset Management, together with a brand-new show for 2018 – Smart Industry. These co-located events will also be staged with ‘MACH’ and ‘What’s New In Electronics Live.’ The combined exhibitions bring over 40,000 visitors to the NEC over a single week. Fluid Power & Systems will also include a full programme of free technical seminars supported with top-class speakers offering expert insight and practical advice on the issues that affect you the most.
