Get Ready for CONEXPO-CON/AGG 2020

CONEXPO-CON/AGG 2020 is North America’s largest construction trade show for the asphalt, aggregates, concrete, earthmoving, lifting, mining, utilities and related industries – set for March 10-14 in Las Vegas, USA.

“The show is shaping up to be one of the best ever; attendees and exhibitors will not be disappointed!” said Mary Erholtz, CONEXPO-CON/AGG chair and vice president marketing for Superior Industries. “AEM and our show committees of industry leaders are working to deliver an outstanding event focused on the latest innovations, technologies and best practices to succeed in our changing world.”

CONEXPO-CON/AGG co-locates with IFPE, the International Fluid Power Exhibition for the fluid power, power transmission and motion control industries. Association of Equipment Manufacturers (AEM) is a show owner and producer.

CONEXPO-CON/AGG & IFPE 2020 will be held at the Las Vegas Convention Center and nearby Festival Grounds.

A Can’t Miss Event – Here’s Why
CONEXPO-CON/AGG and IFPE come around every three years for a can’t-miss event. No other shows bring together as many segments of the construction industries and of the fluid power, power transmission and motion control industries in one place.

Both CONEXPO-CON/AGG  2020 and IFPE 2020 have already set exhibit space records and will feature industry-leading education programs.

Attendees will have up-close access to the leading manufacturers and suppliers, latest product innovations, and knowledge resources to help their businesses thrive.

Several show ticket options are available, and all tickets include a monorail pass. New for 2020 is the opportunity to mix and match education sessions between CONEXPO-CON/AGG and IFPE for one price.

The Tech Experience returns with two locations (Silver Lot 3 and Festival Grounds).

In 2017, CONEXPO-CON/AGG introduced the Tech Experience, an exhibit area dedicated solely to presenting new construction innovations and emerging technologies that will drive change and improvement across the construction industry.

In 2020, the Tech Experience will explore three key areas that will transform the contractor’s business in the future: modern mobility, sustainability and smart cities.

 “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,” said Al Cevero, senior vice president - construction, mining & utility at AEM.

The show campus has expanded with the new Festival Grounds for a total of 10 areas to explore.

The 2020 show connected campus will include new and expanded transportation, attendee experiences and registration locations. Features will include multi-site drop off locations for shuttles, golf cart shuttles, and various experiential transportation options to accommodate attendees throughout the week.

“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.”
