Held every three years, CONEXPO-CON/AGG is preparing the largest construction trade show in North America. The popular exhibition will take place at the Las Vegas Convention Center and the Festival Grounds in Las Vegas, Nevada, USA, from March 10-14, 2020 and will be co-located with IFPE 2020, a trade show for the fluid power, power transmission and motion control industries. The exhibitions are owned and produced by the Association of Equipment Manufacturers (AEM).
In 2018, CONEXPO-CON/AGG received the top spot in the annual Gold 100 list of trade shows as the largest exhibition of any industry in the United States in 2017 with more than 2.66 million net square feet of exhibit space.
In March 2020, CONEXPO-CON/AGG is intended to have a record-setting 2800 exhibitors and 2.6 million square feet of exhibit space. The trade show will be representing asphalt, aggregates, concrete, earthmoving, lifting, mining, utilities and more.
“AEM is committed to bringing people together at CONEXPO-CON/AGG, as the show serves as a catalyst for industry growth and development,” said Dana Wuesthoff, vice president of exhibitions and event services at AEM and CONEXPO-CON/AGG show director. “We wanted to make sure everyone can explore the entire show and have the best possible experience.”
A 10 by 22-foot smart city replica was unveiled in August 2019 by the planning team for CONEXPO-CON/AGG 2020. The replica will demonstrate how a smart city, through sensors and analytics will be able to transform information into digestible data, providing knowledge for the city to work smarter.
The replica will be on display at CONEXPO-CON/AGG and will showcase several scenarios at the Tech Experience, including;
“We were beyond excited to reveal the Smart City today,” explained Al Cevero, senior vice president construction, mining & utility at the Association of Equipment Manufacturers (AEM). “Our goal for the Tech Experience in 2020 is to show contractors how all of these exciting new technologies will impact their current work, how the expectations and demands of customers will change and how the current state of infrastructure may change.”
The show is expanding the 2020 footprint to include the Las Vegas Festival Grounds, located on the Las Vegas Strip adjacent to the Circus Circus Hotel. Types of exhibits in the Festival Grounds will include aerial and cranes, earth moving, hauling and underground construction.
The 2020 show connected campus will also include new and expanded transportation, attendee experiences and registration locations. Features will include multi-site drop off locations for shuttles, complimentary monorail passes, golf cart shuttles, and various experiential transportation options to accommodate for the attendees throughout the week.
