Exhibit space sales for CONEXPO Russia at CTT 2011 are well ahead of the pace of last year's show – indoor space sales have doubled; outdoor space taken has surpassed the 2010 show and is almost sold out.

Exhibit applications are being accepted on a first come, first served basis.

CONEXPO Russia at CTT 2011 will be held May 31-June 4, 2011 at the Crocus Expo International Exhibition Center in Moscow, Russia.

Returning exhibitors (and taking more space) include John Deere, JCB and Volvo, and also signed up are Dana Corp. and Link-Belt Construction Equipment Company.

The Association of Equipment Manufacturers (AEM) is organizer of CONEXPO Russia and makes it easy and cost-effective for companies to exhibit. Its exhibit area is open only to manufacturers and manufacturers' exclusive dealers and is in a central, highly visible location at CTT 2011.

"Companies are telling us that the Russian market improvement is encouraging and the show is an ideal venue for convenient first-hand access to buyers. Returning companies are increasing their investment because of their positive experience at the 2010 event," stated Show Director Melissa Magestro.

"We successfully increased our exposure to top-notch potential and current customers in this important marketplace through our participation in last year’s CONEXPO Russia exhibit area at CTT. AEM offers a quality exhibit area at the show and many value-added customer-support services; we look forward to the 2011 event and our successful cooperation with AEM and CONEXPO," said exhibitor JCB's David Hill, General Manager JCB Russia.

"Russia continues to be a key market in the global economy, and AEM exhibits have a proven track record of delivering maximum return on investment. In looking at our options, we see the CONEXPO Russia area at CTT 2011 as a valuable opportunity to position ourselves for long-term success in the area," said exhibitor Link-Belt Construction Equipment Company’s Chuck Martz, President & CEO.

AEM assists with logistics such as travel planning, hotels and visa processing, and it offers a convenient "turnkey" exhibit service which includes electrical, stand building and furniture. CONEXPO Russia exhibitors receive a discount off published CTT rates for outdoor space; indoor exhibitors can take advantage of AEM's full stand construction service.

All CONEXPO Russia exhibitors benefit from the high level of customer service that AEM is known for and its focus on manufacturer input to its exhibits. The CTT-CONEXPO Russia agreement created a special advisory committee including AEM manufacturer representatives to help guide key CTT planning elements.
