AME Atlanta 2024 International Conference

The AME International Conference returns in Atlanta in 2024!

All it takes is a simple idea. A simple idea often connects with other elements, like tools, technology and the workforce, and grows into an initiative that makes great things happen.

Forty years ago, an idea to connect people through an annual gathering focused on learning, sharing and growing led to the first AME International Conference. Over the years, this event continued to evolve into a must-attend event for business professionals eager to advance their knowledge in lean, continuous improvement and operational excellence. Year after year, the results allow organizations and professionals to transform into wiser, more inclusive, connected, and successful versions of themselves.

We invite you to join us in Atlanta, Georgia, on October 28 - October 31, 2024, to celebrate the 40th anniversary of the AME International Conference. At AME Atlanta 2024, we will CONNECT. EVOLVE. TRANSFORM.AME Atlanta 2024
