WorkforceLooking to connect with the workforce of tomorrow to positively impact brand awareness? Want to engage with youth while also enhancing perception of the skilled trades? Consider attending AEM’s Workforce Solution Area at CONEXPO-CON/AGG 2020 in Las Vegas, Nevada.  

The Workforce Solutions Area will invite the CONEXPO-CON/AGG show attendees and exhibitors – along with association members, job seekers and local students – to experience a trade right on the show floor. In addition, participants will learn about the industry and take away best practice ideas from what will be an interactive workforce pavilion.

“It’s critical for the equipment manufacturing industry and the construction market it serves to do what it takes to engage the workforce of tomorrow to consider embarking on a career in the skilled trades,” said AEM Director of Workforce Development Julie Davis. “Our Workforce Solutions Area will provide a uniquely valuable opportunity to learn how to make a memorable connection with young people by tapping into kinesthetic learning methods that excite a hands-on workforce.”

Want to learn more and get involved? AEM is looking for interested CONEXPO-CON/AGG Festival Lot exhibitors to participate in a Passport Program designed to help them refine their workforce development techniques while simultaneously increasing brand awareness and promoting the skilled trades.

Those exhibitors interested in having 250-500 student attendees visit their area in the Festival Lot on Thursday or Friday of the week of CONEXPO-CON/AGG should contact their CONEXPO-CON/AGG sales rep with the following information:

  • Company Name and Logo
  • On-Site Contact
  • Email Address
  • Booth Location
  • A brief description of what your booth will feature (tools, equipment, simulator experiences, swag, etc.) that you want in your passport description. (Yes, just like in real life, you will be competing to get participants.)

“AEM and CONEXPO-CON/AGG is excited to announce the Workforce Solutions Area, a new and innovative workforce development ideas area to this year’s event,” said Davis. “We know workforce moves you forward. Come explore, connect and bring new ideas home.”
