December 10, 2015 – CONEXPO-CON/AGG 2017 will feature a streamlined show layout to help attendees more easily comparison shop for the products and services they need for their businesses.

The reconfigured CONEXPO-CON/AGG layout is designed to create better synergy between outdoor and indoor space product areas and make it easier for attendees to navigate the show.

“CONEXPO-CON/AGG is guided by volunteer industry leaders and we want to most effectively connect the exhibitors and attendees and deliver a quality show experience; these improvements will help us achieve that goal,” said Rich Goldsbury, 2017 CONEXPO-CON/AGG chair and president of Bobcat Company and Doosan.

The next CONEXPO-CON/AGG will be March 7-11, 2017 at the Las Vegas Convention Center in Las Vegas, USA. Attendee registration will open in summer 2016.

New Bronze Lot, Expanded Gold Lot

As part of the new layout:

  • The Gold Lot includes an expanded Gold Hall and now extends to Las Vegas Boulevard, using the site of the demolished Riviera Hotel
  • A new Bronze lot (with Bronze Hall) has been added south of South Hall, extending the length of the building
  • Both lots will feature Registration areas as well as registration in the Westgate Convention Center (formerly Las Vegas Hilton) adjacent to North Hall

Show management cited increased demand for exhibit space as a major factor in the show floor redesign to make optimum use of available space.

“Demand has been stronger than ever, especially for indoor space, and we worked with the Las Vegas Convention Center to explore all options; we are confident this show footprint will enhance ROI for all stakeholders,” said show director Sara Truesdale Mooney.

CONEXPO-CON/AGG is the international gathering place every three years for the construction-related industries, showcasing the latest equipment and product innovations and attracting exhibitors and attendees from all industry segments around the world
