The Association of Equipment Manufacturers (AEM) today announced a new international agriculture event that will showcase the latest industry innovations, products and technology and offer access to leading industry experts worldwide. The inaugural AG CONNECT Expo is slated for January 12-15, 2010 at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, Florida.
Manufacturers, dealers, distributors and producers from almost every sector of agriculture want to be globally competitive. At AG CONNECT Expo, they will have knowledge-sharing opportunities to better evaluate their position in the world marketplace while networking in a global environment and learning how to gain a competitive advantage.
“Agriculture today is global and dynamic,” said AEM President Dennis Slater. “Industry professionals want access to the best information and the best people possible, without boundaries. That’s why the member companies of AEM felt the perfect time to initiate AG CONNECT Expo is now.”
Charlie O’Brien, AEM Vice President Agricultural Services, explained that the data supports this effort. “Research reveals that producers and other industry professionals really want more substantive discussions with industry leaders and to learn more about how agriculture around the world will affect their businesses,” O’Brien said.
