The US Mega Show, Conexpo-Con/Agg, Back Again!

Published: 4/3, 2020

The Association of Equipment Manufacturers’ mega-show Con-expo-Con/Agg will be held March 11-14 at the Las Vegas Convention Center. Here’s an overview of what to look for in the areas of demolition, concrete cutting, recycling, and remediation.

Conexpo was founded in 1909 in Columbus, Ohio. And the first CON/AGG was held in Detroit, Michigan 1928. In 1968 the two shows merged, with their first joint exhibition was held in Las Vegas. Conexpo-Con/Agg has gone on to become among the world’s largest shows for the construction and construction materials industries, second only to Bauma in Germany.

The U.S. construction industry is experiencing a sharp upturn. The infrastructure has been neglected for a number of years and the need to upgrade is great. Federal, state, and local governments are investing heavily in road and bridge work, and there’s hope that more will come. This type of effort will not only benefit the large construction and civil engineering companies, but many smaller companies will also benefit as subcontractors.


Same numbers as in 2017?

The starting field at Conexpo-Con/Agg is bigger than ever with almost 2,800 exhibitors, with more expected. Although the fair has a strong domestic character with over 75% American exhibitors, it is also an important marketplace for many foreign manufacturers, especially from Europe and East Asia. About 25% exhibitors and manufacturers come from countries other than the U.S.

In 2017, 128,000 people visited the five-day show. Whether the coronavirus will affect attendance remains to be seen, but so far, indications are that turnout will remain good. That said, the U.S. has already had a busy trade show schedule this eyar, starting with World of Concrete which tends to be more focused on concrete equipment and lighter machines. Conexpo-Con/Agg, on the other hand, has a clear focus on the heavy artillery of machine and tools. It is quite clear that in years when Conexpo-Con/Agg is organized, the World of Concrete loses both exhibitors and visitors. That was the case this year too, which you can read about on pages 42-47.

Other U.S. shows have included the National Demolition Association’s Demolition Austin event, and the American Rental Association’s annual show. Needless to say, contractors may be running low on travel funds. Then again, the opportunity to see the western hemisphere’s widest range of construction equipment and related products and services in the always-exciting land of Las Vegas is a hard proposition to pass up.

Speaking of travel, there are more construction trade shows on tap as 2020 unfolds. A couple of weeks after Conexpo-Con/Agg, the pan-Europe Samoter will be organized in Verona, Italy. Samoter is similar to Conexpo-Con/Agg but is considerably smaller. At present, 450 companies have chosen to exhibit at the show.

PDa Magazine will have a team of reporters circulating Conexpo-Con/Agg the whole show week, so feel free to say hi and maybe pose for a photo. Enjoy Conexpo-Con/Agg 2020 and Las Vegas.
