Tanel Named Senior VP for AEM

January 4, 2016

Megan Tanel has been promoted to senior VP, exhibitions & events, for Association of Equipment Manufacturers.

“Megan has passionately led our Association exhibitions and events over the past five-plus years to unprecedented success, delivering record exhibition results, developing our global show footprint, focusing on member and exhibitor ROI and strategically positioning our exhibitions for long-term success,” said AEM president Dennis Slater in announcing the move.

“She has developed and directed an effective and professional team that successfully launched CONEXPO Latin America this year to add to the impressive growth and improved value to members of CONEXPO-CON/AGG, ICUEE, IFPE, World of Asphalt, the BAUMA-CONEXPO international events, Commodity Classic collaboration and a newly developing AG brand event concept to be launched in 2016,” he stated.

Slater noted that while Tanel’s promotion to senior vice president recognizes her leadership in the impressive success of AEM’s largest business unit, it will also provide her with the opportunity to get in front of AEM leaders, members, and the industry in a role outside of exhibitions, positioning her for other future leadership responsibilities.
