The global coalition of agriculture equipment manufacturing associations, the Agrievolution Alliance, brought together representatives from the United Kingdom, Argentina, Spain, Italy, Japan, Turkey and the United States for several on-site meetings at CONEXPO-CON/AGG 2023 last month in Las Vegas.
Alliance members sat in on the annual Joint Technical Liaison Meeting (JTLM) at the show, observing their counterparts in the construction sector as they shared ongoing legislative, compliance and standards activities taking place worldwide. The Alliance also held its Steering Committee meeting and other gatherings at North America’s largest construction trade show.
The Alliance is currently exploring the potential to launch an equivalent agriculture meeting to the JTLM. For more than three decades, members and staff from a variety of organizations have gathered in-person at the JTLM to share timely and relevant information with one another. These meetings have been hosted in North America, Asia and Europe on a rotating basis, with the most recent being held at CONEXPO-CON/AGG.
Other actions stemming from recently held Agrievolution Steering Committee meetings include:
- The important decision to transition the Alliance into a legal entity
- Activities to support and promote United Nations Sustainable Development Goals 2, Zero Hunger; No. 3, Good Health & Well Being; and No. 15, Life on Land
- Actively supporting the Agrievolution Statistics Program’s initiative to harmonize global agricultural statistics programs
The Agrievolution Alliance is the global voice for agriculture equipment manufacturers. Made up of agriculture equipment manufacturing organizations from around the world, its mission is to support the collective 6,000-plus agriculture equipment manufacturer members, working to promote the benefits of mechanization for global sustainable agriculture and growing awareness of the vital role that agriculture mechanization and its precision agriculture technologies play in feeding the growing global population.
Several AEM Board members joined the group throughout the week at CONEXPO-CON/AGG to share their appreciation for the work done by the Alliance and to learn more about its current initiatives, as AEM serves as Secretariat for the Alliance.
Alliance member companies benefit from the insights and unique global data sets gleaned from this collaboration. And as the industry as a whole looks to navigate both the challenges and opportunities the future brings, the Alliance will continue to advocate for the industry as the global, unified voice of agriculture equipment manufacturers.
