ConExpo-Con/Agg is held every three years for the construction and construction materials industry. It is co-located with the IFPE exposition for fluid power, power transmission and motion control.

Nearly 130,000 people registered for 2014 ConExpo-Con/Agg and IFPE, the second-highest attendance record in the shows’ history. Plus, 41,000 education tickets were sold, also a record.

The chairperson for the event will be Richard M. Goldsbury, president of Bobcat Co. and the Doosan heavy equipment division in North America, Australia, New Zealand and other Oceania countries and territories. He will lead the show’s management committee, a group of volunteer manufacturers and other industry stakeholders who oversee show planning to ensure the event meets industry needs.

“2017 will definitely build on the momentum of 2014, and we are already in analysis and planning mode just weeks after such a successful event,” Goldsbury says. “Our focus is to amplify our efforts to deliver an outstanding quality show experience for our visitors, plus expand our exhibitor engagement outreach that results in improved exhibitor return on investment.”

His leadership involvement with the Association of Equipment Manufacturers (AEM), a show owner and show producer, is extensive. He currently serves on the AEM board of directors and is 2014 chair of its Government and Public Affairs Committee. He also served as a director on the AEM CE Sector Board.

He has been part of the industrial and construction equipment industry for almost 30 years, with extensive global experience in general management, marketing, operations, finance, engineering, product portfolio management, aftermarket and mergers and acquisitions.
