The Association of Equipment Manufacturers (AEM), organiser of CONEXPO-CON/AGG and the co-located IFPE Show, has confirmed the 2020 show is set to take place as planned on March 10-14 in Las Vegas. The association is monitoring COVID-19 (coronavirus) and is taking appropriate steps and precautions.
Hand sanitiser will be available in all registration areas, media rooms, information stands, the international trade center, meeting/education spaces, workforce and VIP areas. Further, staff will also be cleaning those areas more frequently, especially tables, keyboards/screens, door handles. The AEM has also confirmed hand sanitiser stations will be located throughout the grounds.
“Rest assured, we are adhering to all guidance and recommended safety measures issued by the World Health Organization and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), as well as state and local health organizations,” said Dana Wuesthoff, CONEXPO-CON/AGG Show Director. “We are encouraging attendees to take common-sense precautions and follow CDC guidelines to prevent the spread of illness. We have also been working with the Las Vegas Convention Center, the airport authority and area hotels and resorts to coordinate appropriate safety procedures.
We have had no major exhibit cancellations. Many of our top exhibitors have been onsite for weeks moving in equipment and setting up their booth space. These exhibitors have been following the move-in schedule protocols and we anticipate all exhibitors will be moved in and ready for the shows’ opening day on Tuesday, March 10.
Off-Highway Research will exhibit at ConExpo-Con/Agg on stand S5998 in the Silver Lot. The stand, which will be in front of the main entrance to the Central and North Halls, will be incorporated into that of Off-Highway Research’s parent, international media and events company KHL Group.
