AEM and CECE to partner on shows
By Mike Hayes07 December 2016
The Association of Equipment Manufacturers (AEM) and the Committee for European Construction Equipment (CECE) have agreed to work together to promote AEM exhibitions worldwide.
While CECE represents the European construction equipment sector, the North America-based AEM is the international business group representing the off-road equipment manufacturing industry.
Following years of informal collaboration between the two groups, the new agreement sees AEM becoming a gold-level participant in CECE’s Exhibition Partner Programme; as a result, CECE will be actively involved in the promotion of AEM exhibitions, including CONEXPO-CON/AGG, which is held every three years in Las Vegas, USA.
Bernd Holz, CECE president and director of Ammann Verdichtung GmbH and Ammann sales director Europe, stated: “AEM and CECE are key partners on the international stage, both with regard to cooperation on regulatory matters as well as fostering business opportunities through major trade exhibitions around the world. With the new partnership agreement, we underline and reinforce our long-standing relations, keeping a clear focus on both our member companies’ needs. I’m looking forward to a successful partnership.”
Michael Haberman, AEM chair and president of Gradall Industries, stated: “AEM has enjoyed a longstanding and very good relationship with CECE as we work on behalf of equipment manufacturers and service providers towards an improved business environment around the globe for all industry stakeholders. AEM trade shows are known as industry gathering places providing unparalleled ROI and this valued CECE support strengthens that relationship and our future endeavours.”
