We are pleased to have world-class speakers joining us in Orlando as our keynote speakers and presenters. We will begin with an OEM panel on Tuesday, February 5, featuring some of the biggest names in manufacturing, including John Deere Construction & Forestry, Bobcat, Caterpillar, Liebherr and Volvo. On Wednesday, February 6, we’ll welcome Rich Karlgaard, one of the most influential and respected figures in the technology, economic and business worlds. We’ll wrap up on Wednesday night with a conversation with John Boehner, former Speaker of the United States House of Representatives.
Our dealer education sessions will be better than ever, covering six tracks and 35 sessions over a three-day time span. This year’s tracks include rental, management, leadership, product support, sales and technology. We encourage you to bring your team to divide and conquer the sessions being offered. Your team will be better for it!
Attendees will also discover great products and services on the CONDEX floor, ranging from attachments to business software to earthmoving equipment and more. Many manufacturers and service providers will also be hosting hospitality suites as a way for you to forge stronger relationships with those companies that support your dealership. This event provides an opportune time for you to take control of your business cycle for the year and meet with your providers on your own time on mutual ground.
And on Monday evening, don’t miss what is sure to be a fun and important night, The AED Foundation Fundraising Gala. This year’s beach-themed gala will take place at the Orlando World Center Marriott. We will bring the atmosphere of the Florida beaches inside, while also raising money for an important cause: The AED Foundation’s goal of constructing pathways to opportunity for those in the construction equipment industry.
