Association of Equipment Manufacturers (AEM) reports:

With AG CONNECT Expo & Summit 2013 on the verge of selling out exhibit space, show owner Association of Equipment Manufacturers (AEM) announces that the 2015 show will be held January 27-29, 2015, at the Indiana Convention Center in Indianapolis, Indiana.

The upcoming AG CONNECT Expo & Summit is scheduled for January 29-31, 2013, at the Kansas City Convention Center in Kansas City, Missouri. Exhibit space for the 2013 show is already 25 percent larger than the 2011 edition of AG CONNECT Expo & Summit.

"We are extremely pleased at the progress we've made with AG CONNECT in just a few years since its launch, and the expectation of selling out of exhibit space for the 2013 show in Kansas City," said Rusty Fowler, AEM Board Chair and President and CEO of Krone NA Inc.

"Planning is already underway with exciting prospects for the 2015 AG CONNECT Expo and Summit in Indianapolis offering additional exhibit space for the show to continue its growth pattern."

Another industry leader, Rob Kolb, Chair of AEM's Ag Sector Board and Vice President Global Business Development of GEA Farm Technologies Inc., said, "The show management committee selected these two Midwestern locations, Kansas City in 2013 and Indianapolis in 2015, so producers would have the opportunity to experience first-hand the full range of AG CONNECT as a gathering place for the agriculture industry.

"Attendees at AG CONNECT can meet directly with company executives and take advantage of superb education; many groups hold their annual conferences and other meetings co-located with a great show."

AG CONNECT Expo & Summit is held every two years to synchronize with Agritechnica in Hanover, Germany, owned by the German Agricultural Society, DLG. The two global agriculture trade exhibitions - Agritechnica in Europe and AG CONNECT Expo & Summit in North America - coordinate timing of their show dates for the convenience of exhibitors and attendees with global business interests.

AEM sets the global standard in North America for high quality, manufacturer-led exhibitions organized and operated for the industry, by the industry. The AG CONNECT Expo & Summit show management committee consists of equipment manufacturers and other key agribusiness companies to ensure that industry needs are met. As a result, AG CONNECT Expo & Summit has a producer satisfaction rating of over 92 percent among past attendees.

In addition, AG CONNECT Expo & Summit has established a number of distinct features that set the show apart, including:

*Personal access to exhibiting company executives in booths,

*One-on-one dialog with technical experts/engineers in booths,
