ConExpo-Con/Agg 2023 only wrapped a month ago, but the chair of the next show is already in place.

Eric Sauvage, president and CEO of Link-Belt Excavator (LBX) Co., was named chair of ConExpo-Con/Agg 2026. According to the Association of Equipment Manufacturers (AEM), which hosts ConExpo-Con/Agg every three years, Sauvage has been an active participant in AEM leadership for many years as part of boards and committees.

“After the tremendous success of the 2023 show, the bar is set very high for 2026 CONEXPO-CON/AGG, and I am honored to have the opportunity to work with the Association of Equipment Manufacturers staff and the show’s management committee,” Sauvage says. “I plan to lean on that strong foundation to further strengthen and grow this world-class industry event, while optimizing the value for our attendees and exhibitors.”

Sauvage, a native of Paris, became CEO of LBX Co. in 2014 after joining the company in 2008. Before then, Sauvage spent more than 20 years with CNH Industrial. He earned his U.S. citizenship in 2006.

In addition to his role as chair of ConExpo-Con/Agg 2026, Sauvage serves as vice chair of AEM’s Construction Equipment Sector board.

“I am looking forward to working with Eric and continuing to build on the success of the 2023 show,” says Dana Wuesthoff, ConExpo-Con/Agg show director. “Although the show isn’t until 2026, our planning is already in the works and Eric will be an excellent leader as we look to bring the industry back together again the next time we all meet in Las Vegas.”

The next ConExpo-Con/Agg will be held March 3-7, 2026, in Las Vegas.
