April 16, 2012, Milwaukee, WI – Exhibit space sales open today for
the next CONEXPO-CON/AGG and IFPE exhibitions. The triennial co-located shows
will be held March 4-8, 2014 at the Las Vegas Convention Center in Las Vegas,
USA.

Companies
submitting an application and deposit by the August 15, 2012 priority deadline
will be included in a virtual space draw to take place in fall 2012. After
August 15, companies will be assigned space on a first come, first served
basis, according to product category.

Exhibit space rates include, as they have in
the past, a “package plan” of booth services that many other shows charge extra
for. These include full drayage services (such as unloading/loading of all
crated materials and machinery, delivery to exhibit spaces from the marshalling
yard and pick-up at show close), general stand cleaning, and pipe and drape for
standard inline exhibit stands.

Exhibitors also receive complimentary access
to trade show education sessions on a variety of topics to help them maximize
their show participation. A complimentary show marketing kit provides
exhibitors with materials to help them promote their company presence at the
shows. These services are especially useful for companies new to exhibiting
and/or new to CONEXPO-CON/AGG and IFPE.

In a 2011 post-show exhibitor survey, 91
percent said they were very-satisfied-to-satisfied with their overall show
experience, and 87 percent were very-satisfied-to-satisfied with the quality of
attendees. The majority of show attendees were key company decision-makers, including
45 percent with the top titles of president/owner and vice president/general
manager/chief financial officer.

“Our shows are industry-run with a focus on
customer service; our goal is to provide a quality experience for exhibitors
and attendees, one that delivers the biggest return on their investment of time
and money,” stated Melissa Magestro, AEM senior director exhibitions and IFPE
show director.

“Attendees will have close-up access to the
range of latest products and services available in the marketplace and be able
to talk one-on-one with industry experts in construction, construction
materials and fluid power/motion control/power transmission,” stated Megan
Tanel, AEM vice president exhibitions & events and CONEXPO-CON/AGG show
director.

CONEXPO-CON/AGG
is the international gathering place every three years for the construction
industries, showcasing the latest technologies, equipment, products and
services. IFPE is the leading international exposition and technical conference
dedicated to the integration of fluid power with other technologies for power
transmission and motion control applications. The last edition of the shows, in
March 2011, attracted nearly 120,000 registered attendees, and on the show
floor were more than 2,400 exhibitors taking more than 2.34 million net square
feet of exhibit space.

The shows are perennially among the largest
not only in the industry but also across all trade shows in North America.
