More than 4,000 people register for CONEXPO-CON/AGG 2020 in single week
"No Handshake" buttons and stickers to be distributed at the show amid growing coronavirus concerns
More than 4,000 new registrations for CONEXPO-CON/AGG and IFPE have been made in the week leading up to the opening day on March 10 in Las Vegas. Advance registration is well ahead of the 2017 show and more than 130,000 are expected to attend to interact with more than 2,500 exhibitors.
"Registrations are on track to make CONEXPO-CON/AGG & IFPE 2020 one of the largest in show history," said Dana Wuesthoff, CONEXPO-CON/AGG Show Director. "We recognize news about COVID-19 is a concern and we want to be as transparent as possible about what we are doing to provide a safe and successful experience for everyone at the show."
With recent news about global health concerns in mind, CONEXPO-CON/AGG and IFPE show management are also doing everything necessary to put attendee and exhibitor health, safety and comfort at the forefront, including increasing deployment of hand sanitizer stations across the show floor, grounds and meeting rooms, and increasing the cleaning schedule of all public areas.
Show Management has also arranged for "No Handshake" buttons and stickers to be distributed at the show. In addition, large signage will be visible throughout the show to remind everyone of hygiene best practices and guidelines provided by the Center for Disease Control (CDC).
