Here’s what people had to say about last year’s event: 

Julie Tomlin, Vermeer Wisconsin

“If you care about inevitable changes that will affect your business future, you will find value in this event”

Ryan John, Alban Cat

“This event features great speakers and is very thought-provoking”

Thomas Hartman, Hydrema U.S

“Very worthwhile, impressed with the lineup of speakers. AED is very much in touch with what OEM’s and Dealers are looking for in these events.”

Wes Stowers, Stowers Machinery Corporation

“This is a very worthwhile use of two days. I liked the schedule, which allowed us to arrive on Wednesday and leave on Thursday. The sessions are well worth the trip.”

Peter Gregory, Wells Fargo Equipment Finance

“For leaders, this was a great event to get you thinking about how you are managing your sales force and gives you ideas to implement.”
