We recognize the power of connection, and at AHTD we provide you with a multitude of opportunities to connect with potential partners, as well as peers and industry. Our bi-annual conferences are viewed as "can’t miss” events by our members and offer:

•  An Industry Showcase - Connect with leading automation manufacturers. Explore new opportunities. Discuss issues with executives from your current manufacturer partners.
•  Visionary Presentations - Learn about emerging trends and technologies from some of the leading experts in the country.
•  Business-Critical Information - Attend programs and workshops that address everything from effective sales management to retaining high performing employees, and from managing a product portfolio amid rapidly evolving technology to evaluating your customers’ true profitability.
•  Unparalleled Networking - There is nothing like the power of face-to-face interaction for exchanging ideas and seeing what you haven’t seen before. Our meetings create opportunities for you to network with your peers, industry thought leaders, and many of North America’s leading automation distributor principals.

The benefits of AHTD membership extend far beyond the conferences. As an AHTD member, you can access:
