LAS VEGAS – The construction industry convention March 4-8 at the Las VegasConvention Center will be heavy in every way: big budgets, giant machines, dense crowds, and huge expectations. Organizers of ConExpo-Con/AGG 2014 have a heritage of building and innovating on previous shows, and the 2014 gathering is expected to extend that record of success.
“People don't realize the effort that goes into this,” said Rochelle Collazzo, assistant marketing manager of Hyundai Construction Equipment Americas. “Because ConExpo is the biggest, it is exponentially important. To put it together and coordinate everything is a lot of work.”
TV legend Ed Sullivan would have called it a “really big shooow,” but organizers of the 2014 exhibition go one bigger and call it comprehensive. “If it's new, it's here” is how the event is billed, meaning that Expo visitors can expect to see all the new equipment models. While not every manufacturer will introduce a piece of machinery next year, fleet managers will find it worth their while to make the trip.
