ConExpo-Con/Agg earns top trade show ranking

By |  April 2, 2018

ConExpo-Con/Agg was named the number one trade show on the Top Trade Show list.

The list is compiled annually by the Trade Show News Network, the online information resource for the exhibitions and events industry that ranks the top trade shows in the United States by exhibit space size.

“This honor is a tribute to AEM’s members and the support of our industries that make this show the gathering place every three years,” says Sara Truesdale Mooney, show director for ConExpo-Con/Agg 2017 and vice president of strategy and business development for the Association of Equipment Manufacturers (AEM). “Our new immersive Tech Experience amplified the technology in the exhibits and was just one example that underscored our team’s commitment to deliver an unparalleled show experience and content to inspire and inform attendees about what’s next.”

A highlight at ConExpo-Con/Agg Tech Experience was the unveiling by the show and co-located IFPE of the world’s first fully-functional 3D-printed excavator, featuring fluid power innovations and the first large-scale use of steel in 3D printing, known as additive manufacturing.

In non-show years, ConExpo-Con/Agg continues to spotlight technology advancements with its ConExpo-Con/Agg 365 initiative.

ConExpo-Con/Agg reached record size numbers in 2017, according to AEM. The event spanned more than 2.66 million net square feet.
