Caterpillar is displaying more than 30 machines and about 10 engine displays across three different exhibits spanning more than 60,000-sq.ft. at ConExpo-Con/Agg 2020.

New for this year’s ConExpo-Con/Agg is Cat’s outdoor Operator Stadium, located in the Festival Grounds, showcasing the company’s technologies and services with hubs for customers to learn more about Caterpillar products. The exhibit will also feature live equipment demonstrations and is the site for the Global Operator Challenge championship, which will crown a champion on Tuesday.

Also new for this year’s show is The Community Builder, hosted by the Caterpillar Foundation, which examines the issues industry leaders face when building more sustainable communities. According to the company, this immersive activation allows participants to virtually visit one of three locations in the world, where they can solve community issues and, by completing the experience, activate a donation from the Caterpillar Foundation to a community-building non-profit.

“Every day, we strive to make our customers more successful using our products and services,” says Jim Umpleby, CEO of Caterpillar. “This year’s ConExpo provides a hands-on opportunity to demonstrate how we can help reduce our customers’ total owning and operating costs, while increasing uptime and asset utilization, so they can profitably continue their work to build a better world.”

In addition, Caterpillar is featuring an array of new products and expanded product lines, as well as technology and services.
