D2D-IDEX Registration & guidelines

EPTDA is primarily an association of distributors in the Power Transmission and Motion Control (PT/MC) industry. It is a platform where distributors can share ideas and best practices, and also discuss and find solutions to specific issues they have to deal with on a daily basis.

EPTDA aimed to go one step further in facilitating these exchanges of ideas between distributors, by presenting the informal distributor-to-distributor (D2D) meetings program.

Due to the success of the project over the past three years, EPTDA is coming with an enhanced / elevated D2D program at the 2018 Annual Convention in London. Organized in the style of the MD-IDEX meetings, the D2D meetings will have a dedicated pre-booking system in place.

Created to meet requirements that have long been on the priority lists of distributors who want to share best practices and ideas one-on-one with other distributors, the EPTDA D2D meetings program is a concept, which the association is confident will be of great added value to all distributors.

Appointment setting
