ConExpo/AGG 2014 – It’s a BIG A$$ Show!

It only happens every three years that the construction world converges at CONEXPO-CON/AGG,  but when it does – its a big, BIG show.  This year, 2014, there are approximately 2,400 exhibitors showing off their newest protects and technology.  More than 125,000 contractors, dealers, service providers, engineers, municipalities, distributors, and other attendees will spend five days (March 4-8) walking the exhibits and taking in all the newness for 2014.

This year, CONEXPO-CON/AGG has worked hard to make navigating the giant event a little less frustrating.  There will be a shuttle service to get you to the event.  They have a mobile app that will enhance navigation while you are trekking through the showcases; which is made easier this year with new internal shortcut routes to get to different areas faster.  And just in case that is not enough, they will have guides throughout the site to help you with any questions.
