ConExpo Announces Public Awareness Campaign

January 23, 2013

ConExpo-Con/Agg 2014 has announced a campaign to raise greater public awareness of the accomplishments of the construction industry in elevating quality of life and to publicize the positive benefits of construction projects across the United States.

The show invites contractors and other industry professionals to submit projects for consideration in helping the campaign demonstrate construction’s contributions to quality of life. The campaign will spotlight 50 projects and culminate in a special recognition event at the 2014 show.


Contractors whose projects are selected to be covered will not only have the opportunity to garner publicity for their work; they will be featured at the event. (Each contractor and a guest will receive complimentary show admission plus airline tickets to Las Vegas and two nights in a hotel room.)


“ConExpo, as the global gathering place in North America every three years for the construction and construction materials industries, provides an ideal context for the culminating recognition event that will focus on the people of the construction industry and their significant contributions to our modern quality of life,” said Glen Tellock, show chair, and chairman and CEO of The Manitowoc Company.


Each project selected will be covered by an experienced construction communications professional, with a story, photography, and possibly video from the construction site. The outreach will include a variety of media outlets and stories will also be posted at


Construction projects can be submitted for consideration via the show website. A short, online form asks for a brief project description and contact information. Stories for this effort can arise from all segments of the construction industry (see the show website for more details).
