Organizers are taking necessary steps to ensure the safety of attendees
The Association of Equipment Manufacturers (AEM), organizer of CONEXPO-CON/AGG and the co-located IFPE Show, affirmed the 2020 shows are set to take place as planned, March 10-14 in Las Vegas. The association is closely monitoring COVID-19, commonly known as coronavirus, and is taking necessary steps and precautions to ensure a safe and productive CONEXPO-CON/AGG & IFPE Show experience.
"The shows are just two weeks away and we understand the concern about COVID-19 may be of concern," said Dana Wuesthoff, CONEXPO-CON/AGG Show Director. "We want to be as transparent as possible and share information about the proactive steps we are taking to address concerns."
Organizers are closely monitoring the news and will follow any protocols that are provided by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and the World Health Organization (WHO).
Hand sanitizer 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 and door handles. Hand sanitizer stations will be located throughout the grounds.
Organizers encourage everyone to make responsible decisions and stay home if they are sick.
