New and emerging technologies are poised to transform the construction, agriculture and manufacturing sectors. AEM’s “Thinking Forward” initiative will help members better understand topics like additive manufacturing, big data analytics, connected jobsites and farms, and a changing workforce.

Along with timely and provocative information updates, the initiative includes a series of nationwide member events exploring these topics. Sessions will include expert presentations, Ag and CE market updates, breakout sessions, facility tours and networking opportunities. We hope you will join us this year at one of the new “Thinking Forward” events (see registration details below).
