Celebration of Construction on the National Mall Set for May 2023



AEM is gearing up to once again take over the heart of Washington, DC, to showcase how the equipment manufacturing industry contributes to a sustainable world.

From May 14 – 16, 2023, between the Washington Monument and U.S. Capitol Building, across from the American and Natural History Museums, equipment used to build the transportation and utility infrastructure vital to the modern world will be on display.  

Now more than ever, it is important that the equipment manufacturing industry comes together to educate policymakers, influencers and the general public on the societal benefits of modern building tools and methods.

There is no place better to do just that than the National Mall.

AEM is rallying a wide array of manufacturers to bring equipment and experts to illustrate how their tools safely and efficiently construct the arteries that connect supply chains and people. Confirmed participants include:

  • Astec
  • Bobcat
  • Bridgestone/Firestone
  • Caterpillar
  • Cemen Tech
  • Ditch Witch
  • Dynapac
  • Gradall
  • John Deere
  • Komatsu
  • Kubota
  • LBX
  • LeeBoy
  • Takeuchi
  • Terex Genie
  • Trimble
  • Volvo CE
  • Wirtgen

AEM will not be alone. To date, the American Traffic Safety Services Association (ATSSA), Associated Equipment Distributors (AED), Association of Equipment Management Professionals (AEMP), Associated General Contractors of America (AGC), National Asphalt Pavement Association (NAPA), National Sand, Stone and Gravel Association (NSSGA), National Utility Contractors Association (NUCA)and Power & Communications Contractors Association (PCCA) are confirmed trade association partners, with several others expected to join soon.
