Over the course of the three-day event, conference sessions covered a variety of subjects including the impact of health care on businesses, clean diesel, MDOT issues, and dealing with a changing economy.

Major sponsors for the event included AIS Construction Equipment, ALTA Equipment Company, JDE Equipment Company and Michigan CAT.
