Testimonials

"The ability to give someone something to take home to the shop and use is the key to this conference."
Rich Nast, Bracalente Manufacturing Group

"This conference is what I use for the mental recharge. The open discussion time and opportunities to further explain concepts and ideas is huge."
Ron Herrera, Erie Specialty Products

"The networking that goes on at this conference is fantastic. The sessions are great, but many times it is the discussion with attendees after the session where additional ideas can be developed and expanded upon."
Mike Goldman, Camcraft Inc.

"This conference is a great educational tool for my employees and me. It is the opportunity to network and to reach beyond your comfort zone with a bunch of professionals who are interested in sharing."
Kevin G. Johnson, Mid-West Screw Products Co.

"The seminars and presentations are the catalysts for the networking and expansion of ideas that takes place after the sessions. The more people you can connect with to discuss the content in the sessions, the more your learning experience will magnify."
Tony Gemignani, R.F. Mau Co.

"The NTC is the perfect place to develop skills, discuss how to take our industry to the next level, and offer the ideas and encouragement to our people to ‘own’ all that they do in the shop."
Eric Lathrop, H&R Screw Machine Products Inc.

"What I appreciate from the Technical Conference, not unlike the PMPA itself, is the creation of a multifaceted venue that brings together a spectrum of businesses and individuals with a common vision of ultimately the betterment and survival of our industry. Regardless of role or capacity of the attendee, the sessions, workshops and speakers will provide value and insight to some aspect of a member company."
Myron Lee, Mueller Brass Company

"The National Technical Conference offers a great opportunity to meet competitors in a non-competitive environment. This is a fantastic networking event where group engagement and respectful sharing of ideas is elevated to levels not seen at any other conference."
