CE on the MallIn three short days, AEM, in partnership with over 40 member companies and industry partners, will be in Washington, D.C. to host the Celebration of Construction on the National Mall from Sunday, May 14 through Tuesday, May 16 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. ET daily.

With over 75 pieces of off-road, heavy equipment on display for lawmakers, regulators, administration officials, and the general public to experience, the event is expected to draw in thousands of enthusiastic attendees.

Over the past four days, modern construction equipment, ranging from excavators to milling machines, have slowly filled up the National Mall in preparation for the festival. Bringing this equipment to the backyard of Washington, D.C. will be impactful and allow AEM to share how the industry has made strides on improving technology and manufacturing safe and sustainable equipment. It also provides an opportunity for AEM to elevate important policy priorities for equipment manufacturers directly to key policymakers as the association continues to advocate on behalf of our industry.

Twenty-four AEM-member companies will be on site displaying the latest construction equipment and technology that will meet the demands of America’s largest infrastructure law ever adopted. Showcasing at the festival will be:

  • Astec Industries
