The next CONEXPO-CON/AGG and International Fluid Power Exposition (IFPE) trade shows are just one year away. The events will return to Las Vegas from March 14 to 18, 2023

During the last show, the West Hall, Diamond Lot, and the Tesla-powered "LVCC Loop" underground transport project were in the middle of construction. Now that the projects are complete, CONEXPO-CON/AGG, and the co-located IFPE will make full use of both.

"AEM and our show committees of industry leaders are working to take advantage of everything that has changed in Las Vegas to deliver a top-notch event delivering the latest innovations and best practices to help construction pros take their businesses and careers to the next level," said Dana Wuesthoff, show director of CONEXPO-CON/AGG 2023. "Between the West Hall and Diamond Lot bringing a lot of displays closer to the rest of the show as well as serving as a connector to the Festival Lot, and the LVCC Loop making it effortless to get across the entire Las Vegas Convention Center, it's never been easier for attendees to see everything they want to learn about when they get there."

According to the Las Vegas Convention Center, the new West Hall provides an additional 1.4 million square feet of indoor space, including 600,000 square feet of "technologically advanced" exhibit space. CONEXPO-CON/AGG is making West Hall a hub for earthmoving and materials handling displays in 2023.

"When you attend CONEXPO-CON/AGG, you are able to see an item, touch it, sit in it, sometimes operate it and discuss it with the engineers and manufacturers," said Brian Dietz, of Bob Dietz & Sons. "When you walk up to a machine and talk to someone, you get answers that you are not going to get anywhere else. No local equipment dealer . . . can provide that. The event also helps you stay on top of the latest trending technology."

The Diamond Lot, attached to the west of West Hall, will have a large variety of exhibits from business operations and hauling to portable power and underground construction.

The LVCC Loop, which features electric Tesla vehicles carrying attendees around the LVCC, is another addition to the show. With stops in the South Hall, running to Central Hall, and finishing at Diamond Lot, attendees can walk less and travel between areas faster.

"In the construction business, everything we talk about is benchmarked by the last CONEXPO-CON/AGG we went to," said Bruce Barnhart, owner of Barnhart's Custom Services. "It's like everything revolves around CONEXPO-CON/AGG. Even our conversations with our employees years after the show connect back to what we saw and learned at the show. Also, the hospitality by the manufacturers is a major highlight. At CONEXPO-CON/AGG you have fun, and you learn."
