The next CONEXPO-CON/AGG and co-located International Fluid Power Exposition are just a year away.
Event organizers are promising construction pros a next-level experience when they arrive at the Las Vegas Convention Center for the CONEXPO-CON/AGG and International Fluid Power Exposition (IFPE), one year from now.
The largest construction trade show in North America, CONEXPO-CON/AGG will be held March 14-18, 2023, with IFPE co-locating during those dates to add the fluid power, power transmission and motion control industries to the mix. Both shows will take advantage of the recently added West Hall and adjacent Diamond Lot, as well as the Tesla-powered people mover, called the LVCC Loop.
“AEM and our show committees of industry leaders are working to take advantage of everything that has changed in Las Vegas to deliver a top-notch event delivering the latest innovations and best practices to help construction pros take their businesses and careers to the next level,” said Dana Wuesthoff, show director of CONEXPO-CON/AGG 2023. “Between the West Hall and Diamond Lot bringing a lot of displays closer to the rest of the show as well as serving as a connector to the Festival Lot, and the LVCC Loop making it effortless to get across the entire Las Vegas Convention Center, it’s never been easier for attendees to see everything they want to learn about when they get there.”
The West Hall provides an additional 1.4 million square feet of indoor space, which CONEXPO-CON/AGG is using as a hub for earthmoving and materials handling displays, the largest of which include Case, K-Tec/Ashland, Hitachi and Hyundai.
“When you attend CONEXPO-CON/AGG, you are able to see an item, touch it, sit in it, sometimes operate it and discuss it with the engineers and manufacturers,” said Brian Dietz, of Bob Dietz & Sons, an excavating contractor. “When you walk up to a machine and talk to someone, you get answers that you are not going to get anywhere else.”
The LVCC Loop has stops in the South Hall, Central Hall and the Diamond Lot, providing a quick way to access any of the show halls, as well as the Festival Lot where the largest exhibits at the show are on display.
“In the construction business, everything we talk about is benchmarked by the last CONEXPO-CON/AGG we went to,” said Bruce Barnhart, owner of Barnhart’s Custom Services. “It’s like everything revolves around CONEXPO-CON/AGG. Even our conversations with our employees, years after the show, connect back to what we saw and learned at the show.”
Held every three years, CONEXPO-CON/AGG offers attendees the opportunity to experience the newest equipment and products through demonstrations and industry-leading education, while making new professional connections.
