Flexible Learning Opportunities

Flexible Learning Opportunities

Special benefits and offerings

A significant benefit of being an AED member is having access to a multitude of resources, including discounted rates at which they are offered. Members often see prices that are half that of non-member companies, and these rates are offered on a variety of membership tools like research reports, networking events, webinars, seminars and much more.

Education and Networking Opportunities

AED brings together executives from dealer organizations along with manufacturers and service providers with common interests in the industrial equipment marketplace. Network with decision-makers, expand your distribution network and market your products and services to the North American market.

An effective method to be successful with your trade organization is to get involved. What does that mean for you? Getting involved with other members of the association through networking events, interactive webinars, roundtable discussions and much more. Instead of waiting to see the benefits of your membership, we encourage our members to be proactive and engage with their like-minded community.


1. Industry-Specific Content and Speakers

AED provides a variety of learning styles that take place at our events, including educational sessions and workshops – with practical takeaways and ideas to keep you, your team, and your dealership moving forward. Sessions cover topics in leadership, management, product support, rental, sales, marketing and technology. Hear from industry experts who know AED’s audience and are keen to the distribution industry.

2. Valuable Insight

Your registration includes access to all presentations, keynote speakers, most meals, several networking opportunities, a list of attendees and much more.

3. Connections

Take advantage of the networking opportunities that AED events have to offer such as evening receptions and off-site activities.

4. Convenience

Once you are on-site, easily access Wi-Fi, venue space and breaks that will help you stay connected to the office, meetings and customers. Where else can you meet with a diverse group of industry peers under one roof?

5. Position Yourself as an Expert:

When you are active in the industry, you may develop a reputation as an expert to your peers and your customers. Members who become engaged and attend AED events bring back new techniques that are beneficial to their dealerships. Previous attendees of events like Summit have implemented practices that resulted in an estimated $300,000 in cost savings for their business.

But don’t just take our word for it, hear from the CFO of MECO Miami on the benefits they’ve seen from being members of AED.
