The Farm Equipment Manufacturers Association has again given its endorsement to AG CONNECT Expo and is a key sponsor of the 2013 AG CONNECT Expo, which is the international agricultural event of the Association of Equipment Manufacturers (AEM).

AG CONNECT Expo 2013 is scheduled for January 29-31 at the Kansas City Convention Center in Kansas City, Missouri. The event is a world-class trade show, offering not only the latest innovations, products, services and technology and access to industry experts, but also quality learning and networking opportunities.

The Farm Equipment Manufacturers Association, based in St. Louis, Missouri, represents specialized manufacturers of agricultural equipment and has been a key sponsor of AG CONNECT Expo since its inception.

Vernon Schmidt, executive vice president of the Farm Equipment Manufacturers Association, said the association is "proud to continue its role as a key sponsor" of AG CONNECT Expo.

"Our Innovation Square Pavilion at AG CONNECT in Kansas City will once again offer the end user a great opportunity to see the many choices of equipment designed specifically to meet their needs. With the widespread dealer consolidation we have seen in recent years, the Innovation Square Pavilion provides our member companies a great chance to visit directly with end-users and to develop the needed additional local demand for dealers to provide competing product lines," Schmidt said.

"From the first moldboard plow to the latest in Global Positioning Systems, member companies of the Farm Equipment Manufacturers Association have a long history of bringing innovation to the market, providing the needed competition that brings farmers and ranchers true value," Schmidt added.

Tim Merrett, vice president region 4 marketing for Deere & Company in Moline, Illinois, and the 2013 AG CONNECT Expo chairman, said, "The Farm Equipment Manufacturers Association plays a very important role with AG CONNECT Expo and we are very pleased to have such support from them. Their leadership participates on the show's management committee as a key sponsor to provide important strategic direction for the show. AG CONNECT Expo has even more value to offer agriculture producers coming to Kansas City in January of 2013 because of the support of the Farm Equipment Manufacturers Association."
