ConExpo-Con/Agg 2014 preview

By |  February 24, 2014

A record amount of exhibit space has been sold for the upcoming ConExpo-Con/Agg 2014, and the show has been moved up from its mid/late-March time slot. The event takes place March 4-8 at its usual location – the Las Vegas Convention Center and surrounding area. And this year, a new Platinum Lot behind the South Hall has been added.

ConExpo-Con/Agg 2014 already covers a record-breaking 2.3 million net sq. ft. of indoor and outdoor exhibits. Show management stresses that quality, not size, is the goal. A strategic alignment with needs of the industry has led to programs and events geared toward helping attendees and exhibitors achieve the most value of their time at the event.

“Attendees will find the newest products and technologies and technical experts ready to discuss product features and applications,” says Megan Tanel, ConExpo-Con/Agg show director and AEM vice president exhibitions and events. “In the space of a few days, in one place, visitors can examine and compare the best of what our industries have to offer.”

“Attendees will also find focused industry education, with the latest techniques and information they need to run their businesses most efficiently. The opportunity to share experiences and ideas with industry peers adds another dimension to the show experience,” adds Melissa Magestro, AEM’s senior director of exhibitions.
Global industry support

ConExpo-Con/Agg will be the global industry gathering place in 2014 with the help of worldwide industry support. More than 95 allied associations and groups are official show-supporting organizations; hundreds of industry meetings and conventions will be held at the show; and key countries for industry business are hosting international exhibit pavilions.

Safety and education/training will be spotlighted with focused industry events in the outdoor exhibit lots, in addition to the specialized product and country pavilions on the show floor.

Attendees can efficiently plan their visit with the interactive online show planner – now available as a free mobile app – for added convenience and to stay connected during the shows.

“Industry connections broaden our base to enhance the show experience for all – more interaction between qualified buyers and sellers, more industry education, and more networking in a global environment,” Tanel says.
