The OEM Off-Highway team is excited to be back at CONEXPO-CON/AGG this year. CONEXPO-CON/AGG is held every 3 years for the construction industries, focusing on construction, aggregates and ready-mixed concrete. The event features exhibits of the latest technologies and innovations in equipment, products and services. Principal sponsors are Association of Equipment Manufacturers (AEM); National Ready Mixed Concrete Association; and National Stone, Sand & Gravel Association. Show sponsor is Associated General Contractors of America (AGC). AEM is the show producer.
The largest trade show in North America, CONEXPO-CON/AGG is growing. It is predicted to break the 2020 record. According to CONEXPO-CON/AGG Show Director Dana Wuesthoff, the show is “now at 2.8 million square feet of exhibits. There’s more for construction pros to see than ever before.”
This large show requires comfortable shoes because there is so much to see. However, a new feature may minimize the number of steps attendees will be taking.
The recent additions to the Las Vegas Convention Center (LVCC) that will make it the easiest to get around as well. Beneath the entire LVCC campus runs the Convention Center Loop, an underground transportation system designed by The Boring Company that transports convention attendees (free of charge) throughout the campus in Tesla vehicles in under two minutes.
“We are excited to welcome CONEXPO-CON/AGG back to Las Vegas for another record-setting event,” said Brian Yost, chief operating officer of the Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority (LVCVA), which owns and operates the LVCC. “The addition of the West Hall and the Convention Center Loop will only further enhance the ‘Only Vegas’ experience for attendees and exhibitors.”
CONEXPO-CON/AGG offers a comprehensive education program during the five-day exposition, with seminars emphasizing industry issues and trends, management, and applied technology.
According to a recent AME press release, with construction technology around sustainability significantly advancing in recent years, CONEXPO-CON/AGG 2023 is already set to have the biggest focus on sustainability since the show began in 1948. As reported in an article on sustainability trending at bauma in Munich, we predicted that the trend would continue into the conversations and technology at CONEXPO-CON/AGG. Apparently, the AEM team thinks the same.
According to Wuesthoff, “More than ever, show attendees will see sustainability in action, from electric- and hydrogen-powered construction equipment, to more recyclable materials and waste reduction opportunities, to changes we’re making to the show to better support sustainability.”
