Emerging technologies for the jobsite of the future, innovative wearables to enhance health, safety and productivity, cutting-edge skills for careers of the future, and new materials to enhance our nation’s infrastructure. These are just a few of the things attendees to the 2017 CONEXPO-CON/AGG Tech Experience pavilion might experience as they step into the future of the construction industry.
The largest international gathering in the Western Hemisphere for the construction industries has announced the new Tech Experience where attendees can actually step into the future and experience what’s new and next in the construction industry.
Located in Silver Lot 3 outside the Las Vegas Convention Center, the new 75,000 sq. ft. Tech Experience is dedicated entirely to presenting new construction innovations and emerging technologies that will drive change and process improvement across the industry.
“With the new Tech Experience, CONEXPO-CON/AGG is advancing to a new level of thought leadership in our industry. We’re calling on AEM members to submit a proposal to be a part of it,” says Sara Truesdale Mooney, Show Director and Vice President Exhibitions and Business Development for AEM. “We’re looking for our members’ bravest and most innovative ideas.”
Proposals will be evaluated against a simple set of criteria by an outside panel of experts.
“The Tech Experience will not only present a vision for the future of our industry, but it will also raise awareness of technologies that enhance safety, productivity and profitability. Attendees will explore three key zones,” says Truesdale Mooney. “The worksite of the future, the jobs of the future and the infrastructure of the future. We’ll also feature additional engagement zones including a Maker Beta Lab that will feature a collaborative future factory environment and the world’s first fully functional 3D-printed excavator.”
In October, the triennial CONEXPO-CON/AGG earned the top spot on Trade Show Executive’s prestigious Gold 100 trade show ranking as the largest show in the U.S. of any industry in 2014 with more than 2.35 million net sq. ft. of exhibit space (and more than 2,100 exhibitors and more than 129,000 attendees).
