Exhibit space sales are already at a record pace for CONEXPO-CON/AGG & IFPE 2014 - more than 30% ahead of the 2011 expositions at the same time in the show cycle. Organizers say many returning exhibitors are taking more space to bring more equipment to the shows and introduce new products. New exhibitors are also signing up as they too realize the value of the shows to cost-effectively reach a wide range of qualified buyers and specifiers.
Deadline is August 15, 2012 to be included in the first round of exhibit space assignments. Space will then be assigned on a first-come, first-served basis.
Held every three years, the co-located CONEXPO-CON/AGG and IFPE shows will next take place March 4 to 8, 2014 at the Las Vegas Convention Center in Las Vegas, NV - CONEXPO-CON/AGG with a focus on the construction industries and IFPE with a focus on fluid power/power transmission/motion control.
"Attendees will find the newest product innovations to help them work smarter. From large companies to specialized businesses, from North America and around the world, it will all be here," states Megan Tanel, CONEXPO-CON/AGG show director and AEM vice president exhibitions and events.
New for 2014 is a virtual priority space selection: all exhibitors submitting a space application and deposit by the August 15 deadline can take part in selecting their exhibit space.
For added exhibitor value, the shows bundle a variety of services such as drayage into the exhibit space rate. Exhibitors have access to a wide range of sponsorship programs, including customized options, to extend their brand messages. The shows also provide complimentary marketing materials and exhibitor training sessions, especially useful for companies new to exhibiting or first-time IFPE or CONEXPO-CON/AGG participants.
The Association of Equipment Manufacturers (AEM) is known for industry-run trade shows with superior customer service. "Our goal is to provide a quality experience for both exhibitors and attendees, one that delivers the biggest return on their investment of time and money," adds Melissa Magestro, IFPE show director and AEM senior director exhibitions.
