CONEXPO-CON/AGG has named Link-Belt Excavator Company (LBX Company) President and CEO Eric Sauvage as the chair of the 2026 show. Sauvage has been an active participant in AEM leadership for many years as part of the association's boards and committees.

"I am looking forward to working with Eric and to continuing to build on the success of the 2023 show," says CONEXPO-CON/AGG Show Director Dana Wuesthoff. "Although the show isn't until 2026, our planning is already in the works and Eric will be an excellent leader as we look to bring the industry back together again the next time we all meet in Las Vegas."

"After the tremendous success of the 2023 show, the bar is set very high for 2026 CONEXPO-CON/AGG, and I am honoured to have the opportunity to work with the Association of Equipment Manufacturers (AEM) staff and the show's management committee," says Sauvage. "I plan to lean on that strong foundation to further strengthen and grow this world-class industry event while optimizing the value for our attendees and exhibitors."

A native of Paris, Sauvage became CEO of LBX Company in 2014 after joining the company in 2008. Before that, he spent more than twenty years with CNH Industrial. In addition to his role as chair of CONEXPO-CON/AGG 2026, he serves as vice chair of the Association of Equipment Manufacturers' (AEM) Construction Equipment Sector Board.
