The meeting is designed to provide an informal business setting to conduct individual association business meetings, general MPIF sessions, and special programmes. It is restricted to members of MPIF and its constituent associations.

This year the programme includes a review of the annual PM Industry Pulse Survey, which examines trends in each market segment and the PM industry in general. There will also be presentations focusing on PM opportunities for energy storage, the automotive market in the US, and an update of the PM Vision & Technology Roadmap, a response to technology trends/challenges and a way of fostering R&D activities in the industry.
