Global Alliance for Agriculture Equipment Manufacturing Associations
The Agrievolution Alliance was established in April of 2012 to facilitate collaboration within the agriculture equipment manufacturing industry among important agricultural regions of the world. It was launched on the shared belief that in today’s global agricultural economy, it is crucial that current issues and future challenges be viewed from a global perspective and be addressed on a global basis.
The Alliance has three areas of focus:
- Industry issues
- Information exchange
- Political activities
The Alliance has roots going back to 2008, when Italian Farm Machinery Manufacturers’ Association UNACOMA first hosted an Agrievolution Summit in Rome. Summits were subsequently hosted by the U.S. Association of Equipment Manufacturers (AEM) in Orlando in 2010 and by the French Association for Industrial Agricultural Equipment (AXEMA) in Paris in 2011.
Recognition of a need for continued information exchange and collaboration on important industry issues between Summit events sparked the transition of Agrievolution from an event into a Global Alliance.
