Register now to attend AEM’s Annual Conference entitled The Next Chapter – Nov. 17-20.

Originally planned to be held in Napa, California, the Annual Conference will now be held digitally, allowing participants to safely join together with industry peers to collectively examine the future of the equipment manufacturing industry.

“We’ve made adjustments to this year’s Annual Conference to allow for us to connect digitally as an industry given the current COVID-19 situation,” said AEM Senior Vice President, Technology, Content & Revenue Creation Al Cervero. “Our staff is hard at work to make sure we continue to exceed expectations by allowing for networking in a new way, offering round table discussions, providing valuable insights on the latest trends and technologies, and having fun as we reconnect with each other and meet new industry colleagues. You won’t want to miss this year’s event.”

The Next Chapter

The world has reached a critical juncture in which nothing will ever be the same again. How will society navigate not only through this moment but importantly, beyond? What new understandings will be essential to allow organizations to embrace the significant opportunities ahead? What mindset is necessary to build the future? Strategic futurist Nancy Giordano will weigh in on how the COVID-19 pandemic and the reactions to it will reshape business, society and technology.

Roundtable Discussions

The event will include two highly anticipated distribution roundtable discussions.

  •          CE OEMs and Association of Equipment Dealers (AED)
  •          Ag OEMs and Equipment Dealers Association (EDA)

Each roundtable will feature four OEMs and four distributor principals talking about how today’s technology is impacting relationships.
