In 2020, the end of CONEXPO-CON/AGG (CONEXPO) marked the shutdown of, well, everything. This year, CONEXPO marks the regathering of the industry for what will surely be a celebration. I know that I am looking forward to my first time attending the show. I hope to see you there at one of our booths (North Hall, N12839, or South Hall, SL80012).
As we have been saying since October, bauma was a great preview of what to expect at CONEXPO. During bauma, we saw exhibitors featuring electrification, connectivity and alternative fuel technology. The tour with the Moog team during bauma included extreme connectivity and automated excavator work. We are looking forward to seeing more of the same in March 2023 as the whole AC Business Media publishing team heads to Las Vegas.
In this CONEXPO and International Fluid Power Exposition (IFPE) issue, we cover some of the new technologies that you will see during the event and what industry experts think you can look forward to from the show. One technology featured is JCB’s new hydrogen combustion engine, which I was thrilled to see in person during a media trip to the company’s headquarters in England. I also saw the engine in operation in a load all operating in a quarry near the headquarters. You can learn more from the article on this technology.
Also, be sure to check out the product sections for CONEXPO (page) and IFPE (page) to learn a little more about what you’ll see in Vegas.
