Last week’s partnership announcement between AEM and the Kentucky State Fair Board came with a strong show of support from both organizations and their members.

“When you can bring AEM’s expertise and partner it with National Farm Machinery Show, a successful show for more than five decades now, I think the partnership is going to be absolutely fantastic,” said Jason Andringa, president and CEO of Vermeer Corporation.

Greg Petras, president, Kuhn North America echoed those comments stating, “It’s going to be a great collaboration. AEM has a proven record in bringing value to other large shows and has been very successful at it so we’re looking forward to it.”

The National Farm Machinery Show fills the entire 1.2 million square feet of the Kentucky Exposition Center with over 880 exhibitors and brings in over $17 million dollars in economic impact to the Louisville area each year.
