Equipment industry professionals can tap into the unparalleled expertise and resources of the Association of Equipment Manufacturers (AEM) annual product safety forum to discuss current and future issues affecting the design, manufacture and use of their products.

AEM’s 2017 product safety & compliance seminar, set for April 24 to 26, 2017 at the Westin Hotel in Cincinnati, Ohio, is designed by and specifically for off-road equipment manufacturing professionals, to meet the needs of all skill levels.

The seminar targets company management, product safety and risk managers, design engineers, technical writers, and company training, service and marketing communications staff involved in product support.
