How can equipment manufacturers prepare for and manage critical challenges like big data, advanced manufacturing and a changing workforce?

AEM’s “Thinking Forward” series of events will provide some of the answers. Each event will feature a number of expert presentations on real ideas about the future of our industries. These topics along with AG and CE market updates, breakout sessions and peer-to-peer networking opportunities will also be a part of the jam-packed agenda. We hope you will join us this year at one of the new ‘Thinking Forward’ events.
