The show, now almost 5% bigger than the historic 2020 rendition, will feature more than 1,800 exhibitors with 150 education sessions between March 14-18, 2023.
To quote Show Director Dana Wuesthoff: “The addition of the new West Hall and Diamond Lot at the Las Vegas Convention Center gave us and our exhibitors, a number of new opportunities to show how we are taking the construction industry to the next level. Now at 2.8 million square feet of exhibits, there’s more for construction pros to see than ever before.”
Regardless of it being the largest CONEXPO-CON/AGG ever, an upgrade to the Las Vegas Convention Center (LVCC) will make it easier to get around, thanks to the Convention Center Loop; an underground transportation system designed by Elon Musk’s The Boring Company that transports attendees throughout the campus in less than two minutes in Tesla vehicles for free.
As Brian Yost, chief operating officer of the Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority (LVCVA) put it: “We are excited to welcome CONEXPO-CON/AGG back to Las Vegas for another record-setting event. The Convention Center Loop will only further enhance the ‘Only Vegas’ experience for attendees and exhibitors.”
Construction pros are eager to return as well. The current pace of attendee registration is almost double what it was in December 2019 for the 2020 show.
“This is the event that construction professionals, especially those making company-level decisions, and those needing professional development hours, can’t miss,” said Caterpillar Senior Vice President Phil Kelliher. “Seeing the new equipment and techniques on a screen doesn’t compare to seeing it all in person. At the show, you can see the equipment, ask questions of the manufacturers themselves, and really understand what the equipment and education can do for your career and business.”
Construction and fluid power professionals should also sign up before January 6, 2023, to benefit from that discount and have a better pick of hotel accommodations.
