Leadership Conference

Leadership Conference

August 5-7, 2024 - Omni Austin Hotel Downtown - Austin TX

Business relationships between employees and customers thrive when you have an effective and diverse leadership team in all areas of operation – from the branch level to the corner office. Cultivating those leaders requires education and networking opportunities. As the equipment distribution industry becomes increasingly competitive, it is more important than ever before to invest in leadership development for the future of the business.

How prepared are those in your business who are or will enter leadership roles? Take the opportunity to set up the new and future leaders in your dealership for success by sending them to the AED Leadership Conference. No other event will give you more focused expertise on building and optimizing leaders in your dealership.

Attending will enable professionals to grow by delivering actionable content on leadership principles, the most relevant industry information, technology updates, and a platform to grow their professional networks and to learn from their peers. The Leadership Conference is one of the most highly anticipated industry events of the year across North America. There are many reasons attendees return year after year, including preparing for a promotion, inspiration for improving and motivating the team, and the overall quality of the program.

Jon Shilling, General Equipment & Supplies

“This is well worth the time, travel, and expense involved to send a young leader to in your company, both for the educational content as well as the social aspect of getting to meet other industry peers and converse with them on their pains in the market today as well as successes.”

Taylor McCarthy, Leppo Rents

“I would recommend this event to “high potential candidates” or emerging leaders within an organization.  It was a great, concentrated event with valuable information for managers and leaders.”

Chad Van Solen, Vermeer Midwest

“It is well worth the time and money. AED does a great job of getting great speakers with relevant content.”

Bill Price, West Side Tractor Sales

“It allows me to step away from the business, meet with peers, hear new ideas, and reflect on small changes I can make to improve our business. It helps me develop and focus our strategy for next year.”

Alvin Prasad, Sonsray Machinery

“I would love to see all of our managers attend! It’s a great experience. It really allowed me to take my management skills to the next level.”
