The Annual AMC Engineering Conference is a conference and tradeshow that is completely conceived and organized for agricultural and off-highway equipment design engineers by their peers.

Since 1986, AMC (formally known as Agricultural Machinery Conference) has served as a forum for engineers, managers and other professionals in the field of agricultural equipment design to gather with the purpose of exchanging ideas, see the latest component technology, and learn new design practices, techniques and methods of importance to the industry.

Each year a volunteer committee solicits experts to lead information sessions on the most important areas of equipment design and development. Over a three-day period, attendees will have the opportunity to listen in on any of nearly 50 presentations in fields as varied as engines, ergonomics and economics.

Proceeds from the conference are used to help support & fund the operations of the: ASABE Iowa Section, ASABE Quad City Section, and the SAE Mississippi Valley Section.
