Even though Conexpo-Con/Agg 2005 is 9 months away, exhibit-space sales have surpassed 1.5 million net square feet, which includes more than 875 exhibitors.
The show will be held March 15-19, 2005, at the Las Vegas Convention Center, Las Vegas. It is said to be the world's largest international gathering place in 2005 for the construction and construction-materials industries.
"Economic conditions have improved significantly since space sales opened, so many exhibitors are expanding their exhibit plans," says Gerald Shaheen, Caterpillar group president.
In addition, IFPE 2005 (International Exposition for Power Transmission) will be co-located at the Las Vegas Convention Center. It is the leading international exposition and technical conference for hydraulic, pneumatic, electrical and mechanical components, systems and controls.
Together, both shows are expected to have more than 1.85 million net square feet of exhibits and host more than 100,000 attendees. For more detailed information, call 800/867-6060 or visit www.conexpoconagg.com.
