Every major construction industry sector will be represented at ConExpo in Las Vegas, USA, from 7 to 11 March 2017. More than 2,500 exhibitors will show and demonstrate equipment and services over 232,000 square metres of the Las Vegas Convention Center. Some 160,000 people are expected to attend. Held every three years, it is the international gathering place for the construction industry. An extensive industry-targeted education programme is another strand of this event.
New in 2017 is the Technology Track, which focuses on industry innovations and future growth opportunities in the technology field, including drones, autonomous machines, 3-D imaging, smart apps, gamification, big data and IoT. The technology track complements the new Tech Experience to showcase ideas and technologies that will transform construction.
The first thing you need to do in planning your trip is to register. New in 2017 is the ConExpo Con/Agg Badge-Pack, which includes a lot of freebies and promotions, the most valuable of which is a Las Vegas Monorail multi-day pass. Also included is access to seven halls and outdoor lots on all five days. Discounts at Las Vegas bars and restaurants are included.
After determining when you will be travelling and how long you will be staying,
the easiest way to book hotel accommodation is to visit the hotel information page on the ConExpo website. Experient is the official housing provider for the show and it is the only company that can sell rooms in the official ConExpo hotel blocks.
The benefits of reserving your room through the ConExpo Con/Agg Show Housing Services are rate assurance, no prepayment, immediate confirmation, ability to make changes and cancellations online, detailed hotel information and access to shuttle services between the hotel and official hotel partners, with the exception of those within walking distance to the convention centre. AEM warns attendees to be aware of unauthorised hotel solicitations. Entering into financial agreements with non-endorsed companies can have costly consequences, AEM said.
