35th Anniversary of the Pump Symposium

This year marks the 35th Anniversary of the Pump Symposium. Celebrate by joining us for cake in the front of the exhibit hall at 4:00 p.m. on Tuesday, Sept. 10. Stop by the TPS Social Media booth #2022 to hit a hole-in-one on our mini putting green, and take a commemorative anniversary golf ball back to the office with you. Golf balls are limited in supply—come and putt early.

Built on a history of success, the annual TPS promotes professional development, technology transfer, peer networking and information exchange among industry professionals. TPS 2018 attracted 4,750 delegates from 45 countries and 365 exhibiting companies.

“TPS offers everything one would hope to expect with the cost of shows: networking, current and potential customer contact, technical and learning sessions, trend observation, helpful staff, and most importantly, targeted exposure to the industry resulting in quality leads,” said Maeve McGoff, sales and marketing coordinator with Cincinnati Gearing Systems. “The Turbomachinery Show continues to be one [of our] most successful and beneficial platforms for industry exposure…TPS is relevant, and the best show in the turbomachinery industry.”
