ConExpo 2017 goes for gold

Written by Christian Shelton - 13 Mar 2017

The organisers of ConExpo 2017 reported that, over five days, a total of 128,000 people attended the construction equipment show which had a record number (more than 2,800) exhibitors. Of the visitors 20 percent were international, from approximately 150 countries.

The general consensus among manufacturers and customers ICST spoke to was that the mood at the show was positive, with many reporting a tangible feeling of economic optimism. The Gold Lot served as the hub of international crane activity with many of the main manufacturers announcing a good number of sales and potential leads. This is backed up by the organiser’s figures, which show that general US buyer attendance increased 16 percent from the 2014 show, and total buyer attendance improved by almost 8 percent.

“I think there was a noticeable difference in the attendees at this show, and the difference was their optimism,” said Michael Haberman, 2017 Association of Equipment Manufacturers (AEM) chair. “Optimism was on display throughout the show, and the traffic was excellent.”
