The AME conference provides a forum whereby attendees can stay current with new and developing management and operational techniques. At the AME conference, you’re not just hearing about lean, you’re seeing it firsthand. One of the best features of the AME conference is that attendees have the opportunity to leave the conference venue and tour manufacturing facilities to see lean in action. We will offer more than 40 best practice tours at AME Chicago 2019.
AME Chicago 2019 will offer inspiring keynotes throughout the week--thought leaders in the areas of innovation, leadership, engagement and continuous improvement. Practitioner-to-practitioner sessions will be offered throughout the week in a variety of formats, including roundtables, in-depth panel discussions and innovative, attendee-driven content to maximize your learning experience.
AME is a nonprofit association, and the AME conference is organized by a large group of volunteers. These volunteers are passionate about helping North American manufacturers sustain success through continuous improvement practices.
