Thank you for being a part of AME 2018!

Our goal is very aggressive - we want to more than double our AME show again this year.  

  • By expanding into Detroit we can cover the entire state of Michigan in one week, east-to-west.  Our goal is 110 booths and 750+ attendees
  • Our Expo printed program will double to 16 pages and approximately 43,000 of these programs will be inserted into two newspapers across the state
  • TV ad's will more than double and run on the east and west side of Michigan

To apply to exhibit:  click on the Become an Exhibitor tab. Fill out the information and we will email you back with information on becoming an exhibitor and pricing. After confirming your booth count and locations, we will assign booths and send an invoice to be paid at any time before the show. If you have questions, please call Mark at 616-836-5536 or email
