The Association of Equipment Manufacturers will focus on the theme "World Trade: Traits of the Masters" at its annual conference from 9-11 November in Scottsdale, Arizona. Among members of AEM are 18 companies manufacturing forklifts and 14 firms making rough-terrain forklifts. The conference brings together presidents, chief executive officers and other senior-level executives of companies in the off-road equipment manufacturing industry. Speakers will provide insights about the US and global economies, the political environment, sustainability issues and operational efficiencies. A political "point-counterpoint" program will analyse the results of the previous week's US presidential and congressional elections. Milwaukee-based AEM serves manufacturers of agricultural, construction, forestry, mining and utility equipment and industry service providers.
