Exhibit space for ConExpo-Con/Agg, scheduled for March 14-18 in Las Vegas, is sold out.

The Association of Equipment Manufacturers (AEM), which hosts the trade show every three years, made the announcement near the end of 2022.

“The addition of the new West Hall and Diamond Lot at the Las Vegas Convention Center gave us and our exhibitors a number of new opportunities to show how we are taking the construction industry to the next level,” says Dana Wuesthoff, show director of ConExpo-Con/Agg. “Now at 2.8 million sq. ft. of exhibits, there’s more for construction pros to see than ever before.”

AEM says the show at the Las Vegas Convention Center, which is slated to be nearly 5 percent bigger than the record set in 2020, will feature 1,800 exhibitors.

“We are excited to welcome ConExpo-Con/Agg back to Las Vegas for another record-setting event,” says Brian Yost, COO of the Las Vegas Convention & Visitors Authority, which owns and operates the convention center. “The addition of the West Hall and the Convention Center Loop will only further enhance the ‘Only Vegas’ experience for attendees and exhibitors.”

According to AEM, the pace of attendee registration toward the end of 2022 was nearly double what it was at the same time for ConExpo-Con/Agg 2020.

“This is the event that construction professionals – especially those making company-level decisions and those needing professional development hours – can’t miss,” says Phil Kelliher, senior vice president at Caterpillar who is also chair of ConExpo-Con/Agg. “Seeing the new equipment and techniques on a screen doesn’t compare to seeing it all in person. At the show, you can see the equipment, ask questions of the manufacturers themselves, and really understand what the equipment and education can do for your career and business.”
