About the Fall Summit

NIA’s Fall Summit is an annual members-only event that includes topical speakers, open committee meetings, tailored industry sessions, and networking opportunities to develop new business relationships. Fall Summit is designed to “Educate, Engage, and Elevate,” by providing actionable content for attendees that companies can implement to improve their businesses.

NIA’s Fall Summit offers members:

  • Convenience—All Fall Summit and IEX USA events take place at one location with easy access to 3 airports. The Fall Summit hotel, the brand new Marriott Marquis, is connected via Sky Bridge to the George R. Brown Convention Center.
  • Flexibility—Minimizing members’ time out of the office is a priority, so all events take place over a 2-day period with dedicated time to attend Fall Summit events and participate in the IEX USA trade show.
  • Value—15 hours of education, 2 breakfasts, 2 networking receptions, and complimentary access to IEX USA and the Turbomachinery & Pump Symposia (TPS) trade show floors are included in the affordable registration rate. Additional multiple-registrant discounts are available.

The Fall Summit schedule is planned to make the most efficient use of your time away from your business. By combining the Fall Summit with additional programs, NIA is offering a week-long opportunity for education, training, and networking.
