Types of exhibits in the Festival Grounds will include aerial and cranes, earth moving, hauling and underground construction.

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

CONEXPO-CON/AGG makes it easy to prepare with an interactive online exhibitor directory and a show mobile app that will continuously synch to your online customisable show planner.

In addition to the 2800 exhibiting companies and the 2.6 million square feet of exhibit space there are also 180 education sessions.

Take Charge Of The Future: Education At CONEXPO-CON/ AGG 2020

Education is always a vital component of both CONEXPO-CON/AGG and IFPE to help attendees not only survive, but thrive in a changing and global industry.

Attendees at the 2020 shows can take advantage of more than 180 education sessions packed with timely and actionable information, developed with the guidance of leading industry groups, and delivered by industry experts.

“The line-up of programming is not only larger than it has ever been but includes a fresh line-up of speakers stacked sideby- side with core programming that is always highly attended,” said Eileen Dickson, vice president education, National Ready Mixed Concrete Association and CONEXPO-CON/AGG Education Committee chair.

CONEXPO-CON/AGG 2020 education features 10 tracks covering a variety of equipment applications, site development, fleet management, business best practices, technology, safety, and attracting and retaining talent.

“The education committee took great care in putting together a program that grows attendee knowledge on building their business on all fronts, whether the technical skills needed in the field or best practices to build their business,” said Graham

Brent, CEO of the NCCCO Foundation and CONEXPO-CON/AGG Education Committee vice chair.

The Tech Experience Returns With Two Locations Speaking of moving the industry forward, in 2017 we introduced the Tech Experience. An exhibit dedicated solely to presenting new construction innovations and emerging technologies that will drive change and improvement across the construction industry.

A 10 by 22-foot city replica, demonstrating how a smart city, through sensors and analytics will be able to transform information into digestible data, providing knowledge for the city to work smarter.

The replica will be just one of the many items on display at CONEXPO-CON/AGG in the Tech Experience and will showcase several scenarios, including:

  • Different city grids and how a city responds to heat, wind and storms
  • Connectivity in the city, including 5G, sensors, telematics and IOT, and
  • Impacts of construction. The jobsite of the future within the city and how equipment will communicate will also be on display

“We were beyond excited to reveal the Smart City,” said Al Cevero, senior vice president construction, mining and utility at the Association of Equipment Manufacturers (AEM).

“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.”

In 2020 we will continue that journey to the future of the Construction Industry.

The main goals of the Tech Experience are to drive awareness and adoption of new technologies and innovations, engage and attract the next generation of attendees and position the show as a thought leader.

CONEXPO-CON/AGG comes around every three years for a can’t-miss event. No other show brings together as many segments of the construction in one place.

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