Lessiter Publications, publisher of Farm Equipment magazine, has announced a first-ever conference and networking event for dealership principals, top management and executives in conjunction with AG CONNECT Expo & Summit 2013.
The Farm Equipment Dealership Minds Summit, set for January 30, 2013, will be guided and presented by the publication’s Dealership of the Year alumni group as well as industry experts in the agricultural equipment retail market. It will be co-located with AG CONNECT Expo & Summit 2013, scheduled for January 29-31, 2013, at the Kansas City Convention Center in Kansas City, Missouri.
“The Farm Equipment Dealership Minds Summit features a variety of formats to encourage in-depth discussions and face-time,” said Mike Lessiter, editor/publisher of Farm Equipment. “It is an outcome-based event that will provide our attendees with actionable items that they can implement to help them achieve success and move the North American agricultural equipment market forward as a whole.”
“As much as the industry tries to define itself by equipment colors, this event is ‘colorblind,’” Lessiter added. “Every farm equipment dealer who is serious about moving their business forward is invited.”
“This is the kind of event that sets AG CONNECT Expo & Summit apart as the industry gathering place,” said Sara Truesdale Mooney, show director. “We are pleased with the decision by Lessiter Publications to hold this one-of-a-kind conference for farm equipment dealers in conjunction with the show.”
AG CONNECT Expo & Summit is the international agricultural event of the Association of Equipment Manufacturers (AEM). The show offers a preview of coming developments in agriculture through new technologies, advanced practices, and operating efficiencies to make farm operations stronger, faster and more profitable.
