It’s official: CONEXPO-CON/AGG, the biggest trade show in North America, is getting even bigger.

The Association of Equipment Manufacturers (AEM), the organizers of the event held every three years, has announced that all available exhibit space for the upcoming show has been sold out, guaranteeing the 2023 edition will be the biggest CONEXPO-CON/AGG in history.

“The addition of the new West Hall and Diamond Lot at the Las Vegas Convention Center gave us, and our exhibitors, a number of new opportunities to show how we are taking the construction industry to the next level,” said Dana Wuesthoff, CONEXPO-CON/AGG show director.

“Now at 2.8 million sq. ft. of exhibits, there’s more for construction pros to see than ever before.”

Nearly 5% bigger than the record set in 2020, CONEXPO-CON/AGG will feature 1,800 exhibitors and 150 education sessions during its run from March 14-18, 2023.

Despite being the largest CONEXPO-CON/AGG ever, AEM noted that recent additions to the Las Vegas Convention Center (LVCC) will make it the easiest to get around as well. Beneath the entire LVCC campus runs the Convention Center Loop, an underground transportation system designed by Elon Musk’s The Boring Co. It transports convention attendees throughout the campus in under two minutes in Tesla vehicles, free of charge.

AEM said attendee registrations were also on strong pace, as pre-registrations are nearly double what they were at the same time for the 2020 show.

“This is the event that construction professionals, especially those making company-level decisions, and those needing professional development hours, can’t miss,” said Caterpillar Senior Vice President Phil Kelliher, who is CONEXPO-CON/AGG show chair. “Seeing the new equipment and techniques on a screen doesn’t compare to seeing it all in person.

“At the show, you can see the equipment, ask questions of the manufacturers themselves, and really understand what the equipment and education can do for your career and business.”

Registration for CONEXPO-CON/AGG is currently 30% off with code ONLINE30. AEM advises construction professionals to get their badges before Jan. 6, 2023 to get that discount and have a better pick of hotel accommodations.
