NFPA is organizing its eighth fluid power pavilion at Hannover Fair, scheduled for April 11-15, 2005, in Hannover, Germany. The pavilion will be part of the Fair's Motion, Drive, & Automation sector.

The Motion, Drive, & Automation sector is the world's largest fluid power and power transmission and control exhibition. In 2005, 1300 exhibitors from more than 40 countries will demonstrate the latest products and technologies for machinery, equipment, and systems spanning the entire field of industrial, automotive and marine, energy, and construction applications. About half the exhibitors in the sector will represent fluid power products and applications. The other half will focus on mechanical and electrical power transmission products.

With large contingents of Italian and German exhibitors and particularly strong representation from the U.S. and France, the Motion, Drive, & Automation sector will be a dynamic international marketplace. Another vital component are the 73,000 buyers and specifiers (32% from outside Germany).
