Looking ahead to Las Vegas

By KHL Group26 January 2017

On March 7, the largest construction show in the world in 2017 throws its first dice in Las Vegas. ConExpo-Con/Agg 2017 will feature more than 2,500 exhibitors, spread across a vast 232,000 m2 of exhibition space.

Along with its usual focus on the latest technologies in asphalt, aggregates, concrete, earthmoving, lifting, mining and utilities industries, this year, ConExpo will give almost 7,000m2 over to Tech Experience, an opportunity for construction professionals to see first-hand the way their industry might just look in the future.

From solar-powered roadways to drones and robots, the huge showcase will include the latest technology being used on today’s construction projects, as well as focusing on tech prototypes and possibilities for the future. As part of the Tech Experience, visitors to ConExpo will be able to get up close to the world’s first 3D printed excavator, a central element in the show’s ‘Imagine What’s Next’ theme. Visitors will also be able to see a second excavator being 3D printed during the five days of the show.

ConExpo also features the co-located IFPE exhibition which focuses on fluid power and other power transmission technologies.
