May 16, 2016 – Emerging technologies for the jobsite of the future, innovative wearables to enhance health, safety and productivity, cutting-edge skills for careers of the future, and new materials to enhance our nation’s infrastructure. These are just a few of the things attendees to the 2017 CONEXPO-CON/AGG Tech Experience pavilion might experience as they step into the future of the construction industry.

Event organizers announced the new Tech Experience where attendees can actually step into the future and experience what’s new and next in the construction industry.

Located in Silver Lot 3 outside the Las Vegas Convention Center, the new 75,000 square foot Tech Experience is dedicated entirely to presenting new construction innovations and emerging technologies that will drive change and process improvement across the industry.

“With the new Tech Experience, CONEXPO-CON/AGG is advancing to a new level of thought leadership in our industry. We’re calling on AEM members to submit a proposal to be a part of it,” said Sara Truesdale Mooney, show director and vice president exhibitions and business development for AEM. “We’re looking for our members’ bravest and most innovative ideas.”

Proposals will be evaluated against a simple set of criteria by an outside panel of experts.

“The Tech Experience will not only present a vision for the future of our industry, but it will also raise awareness of technologies that enhance safety, productivity, and profitability. Attendees will explore three key zones,” said Truesdale Mooney. “The worksite of the future, the jobs of the future and the infrastructure of the future. We’ll also feature additional engagement zones including a Maker Beta Lab that will feature a collaborative future factory environment and the world’s first fully functional 3D-printed excavator.”
