AEM wins “innovation” award

The Association of Equipment Manufacturers (AEM) received Trade Show Magazine’s “innovation” award for its Construction Challenge student competition.

The award recognizes programs that provide new value for show organizers, attendees, exhibitors and the exposition industry as a whole.

AEM’s Construction Challenge divides middle and high school students into teams and surveys their knowledge of the construction industry, careers and the importance of a well-maintained infrastructure. The finals were held at the AEM booth at the 2008 ConExpo-Con/Agg.
