The only show specifically designed for executives and managers in the equipment distribution industry - AED's 2007 Annual Meeting & CONDEX - is the perfect opportunity for manufacturers to meet with their dealers.

Caterpillar is hosting a breakfast for its dealers, and Kawasaki has planned a reception for its dealers. Both are set for January 16.
"We've found it beneficial to meet with dealers to discuss strategic issues, plan for the coming year and discuss any issues that may need to be resolved with the dealer," says Gary S. Bell, VP general manager for Kawasaki. "AED's Annual Meeting has been a very efficient way for us to start the year by meeting with dealers, hearing what market conditions are in various parts of the country, and picking up on emerging industry trends - all in a couple of days."
