CONEXPO-CON/AGG will return to Las Vegas with additional exhibit space, focus on latest industry innovations
North America’s largest construction trade show is right around the corner. CONEXPO-CON/AGG will return to the Las Vegas Convention Center on March 14-18, 2023. Held every three years, it features the latest in innovation and equipment from all sectors of the industry.
In addition to the approximately 1,800 exhibitors spread across 2.7 million square feet of exhibit space, the show will also have more than 150 educational sessions that highlight the latest topics and industry trends. The sessions are grouped into tracks such as aggregates, asphalt, business best practices, earthmoving and site development, equipment management and maintenance, and more.
During the last show in 2020, construction of the new West Hall and adjacent Diamond Lot on the site of the old Gold Lot was underway, as was the Tesla-powered underground people mover called the LVCC Loop. Both projects are now completed, and CONEXPO-CON/AGG and the co-located International Fluid Power Exposition (IFPE) will make full use of them.
“AEM (Association of Equipment Manufacturers, a co-owner and operator of CONEXPO-CON/AGG) 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 here.”
Easier to get around
With an additional 1.4 million square feet of indoor space — including 600,000 square feet of “technologically advanced” exhibit space — the West Hall will be a hub for earthmoving and material handling displays. Komatsu will have one of the largest booths (W42044) in the West Hall with close to 20 machines and its Smart Construction solutions on display.
The Diamond Lot will have a variety of exhibits such as business operations, hauling, portable power and underground construction.
The LVCC Loop will transport attendees and make stops in the South Hall, the Central Hall and the Diamond Lot. Attendees can use the on-site shuttle service to get from the West Hall to the Festival Lot, which has the show’s largest exhibits.
Next Level Awards
Another new feature at CONEXPO-CON/AGG and IFPE is the inaugural Next Level Awards Program, which will celebrate exhibiting companies that are pushing the boundaries to develop next-level products, technologies and services that advance the construction industry. During the show, 10 finalists will be highlighted, and attendees can vote on-site to determine the Contractors’ Top Choice.
The awards program is open to all 2023 exhibitors in good standing that have created products or services for the construction industry that have one or more of the following characteristics:
- Addresses a common industry need in a unique and innovative way
- Benefits the industry across multiple applications for industrywide adoption
- Positively impacts the safety, sustainability and workforce of the industry
“We are excited to recognize the innovative construction products that are taking the industry to the next level,” said Wuesthoff. “Exhibitors, large and small, have an opportunity to be recognized for driving ideas and developing products or services to advance the industry. This is an exciting addition to CONEXPO-CON/AGG and IFPE, and we strongly encourage exhibitors to enter.”
