AEM Annual Conference 2021

November 10, 2021 - November 12, 2021

About AEM Annual Conference

The Association of Equipment Manufacturers (AEM) 2021 Annual Conference delivers a single place for you to gather with your peers to examine what this transformational decade will mean for your organization and the equipment manufacturing industry.


Networking and direct conversations

As always, there will be opportunities for crucial networking, but also discussions with suppliers, peers and subject matter experts that help us prepare for the new landscape our industry faces.

Feedback from your customers

This year, we are offering roundtable discussions with OEMs and end-users. In these roundtables, we will address the most important and relevant data on the future of the industry in a space where customers can provide honest input and exchange ideas for improvement and action.

Industry perspectives on today and tomorrow

A full schedule of insightful sessions, small-group roundtables, and candid conversations with CEOs who are shaping the equipment manufacturing industry right now and in the future. Topics will include culture, sustainability, corporate responsibility, leadership and the post-covid workforce, just to name a few.



We are experiencing a historic acceleration in the pace of change in our world. Artificial intelligence, digitization, robotics, 3D printing, social shifts, and the rise of purpose-driven enterprises are reconfiguring how every conceivable industry operates.

The AEM 2021 Annual Conference keynote will address:

  • The patterns and best practices that the world’s most strategic and innovative companies use to thrive during the ongoing shift of global business structures and ways of thinking
  • A systematic process you can use to overcome the “innovator’s dilemma” and create breakthrough growth ideas that will disrupt your market without disrupting your organization
  • How to empower and inspire employees so that they’re ready to take action to develop, test and scale innovative growth ideas
