April 24, 2015 - The international CONEXPO-CON/AGG construction industries exhibition captured the lead spot in the just-released “Top 250” trade show ranking of North American-based expositions. The Trade Show News Network (TSSN) compiles the annual list, based on net square feet of exhibit space.
CONEXPO-CON/AGG 2014 won the top ranking for its record show space of more than 2.35 million net square feet.
“We are honored to receive this recognition. CONEXPO-CON/AGG could not have achieved the number-one spot without the support of our membership and the industry, and their affirmation of our value and return on participation for all stakeholders,” stated Megan Tanel, vice president exhibitions and events for Association of Equipment Manufacturers (AEM).
“All AEM shows are industry-run and we believe this creates a positive difference in our stakeholder relationships; we share a common vision of elevating and advancing our industry,” Tanel stated.
IFPE exposition also honored
The co-located IFPE 2014 exhibition also broke show space records, at more than 161,000 net square feet, and made the top-show list at #135. IFPE focuses on integration of fluid power with other technologies for power transmission and motion control applications.
TSNN is the leading online news and information resource for the trade show, exhibition and event industry.
Tanel noted that quality and measureable value underpins all AEM show planning. “We focus on satisfaction and delivering an unparalleled experience,” Tanel said.
“For our next CONEXPO-CON/AGG and IFPE, in 2017, we are intensifying our exhibitor and attendee engagement efforts and will offer even more value with more products, events and programs planned,” she said.
“And we have an amazing staff of creative and dedicated professionals who truly work as a team to create these successful events,” Tanel added.
