The construction industry’s trade show season is moving at full speed again, and no show is bigger or more important to attend than the upcoming CONEXPO-CON/AGG 2023 show in Las Vegas, Nev.

This popular show typically brings more than 130,000 construction industry professionals to Sin City to check out more than 1,800 exhibitors across a massive 2.7 million square feet of exhibit space.

CONEXPO-CON/AGG 2023 will also offer more than 175 education sessions across a wide variety of tracks, including:

  • Aggregates;
  • Asphalt;
  • Concrete;
  • Cranes, rigging and aerial lifts;
  • Earthmoving and site development;
  • Equipment management and maintenance;
  • Business best practices;
  • Health and safety;
  • Talent acquisition;
  • Technology solutions;
  • Emerging technologies;
  • Risk management; and
  • Sustainability.

The 2023 edition of this triennial show will also offer some new features for attendees, including the Next Level


Discovery Zone.

According to the show’s organizers, AEM, this area will showcase innovative products and services from exhibitors in a creative and unique way. Okay, I’m intrigued. I’ve always enjoyed how this show brings new and interesting presentations and exhibits each edition. I still remember watching the first-ever 3D-printed excavator be unveiled (dubbed Project AME) and operate during the 2017 edition of CONEXPO-CON/AGG.

That marvel was unveiled during the show’s first-ever Tech Experience, which was a 75,000-square foot area offering interactive experiences and showcasing future innovations – a great addition to the show. I imagine the Next Level Discovery Zone will offer equally impressive technologies to check out.

To learn about some of the innovative technologies that will be on display at the show, check out Rock to Road’s CONEXPO-CON/AGG 2023 Showcase on page 20 of the online magazine.

In our showcase, you’ll be able to check out some the impressive new equipment that will be on display from global leaders such as Astec Industries, John Deere, Wirtgen Group, ADM, CDE, Durex, Haver & Boecker Niagara, MAJOR, Komatsu, Polydeck, PPI, Superior Industries, Trimble, Volvo CE and more.
