The upcoming CONEXPO-CON/AGG 2014 which takes place March 4-8 , in Las Vegas, Nevada, will feature the first ever Demolition & Recycling Exhibits Pavilion that will showcase products specific to C&D recyclers and demolition contractors. The Construction & Demoiltion Recycling Association (CDRA) is the pavilion sponsor of the first ever Demolition and Recycling Pavilion, which will feature manufacturers and other companies involved in C&D reycling, and will promote the safe and economically feasible recycling of recoverable construction and demolition materials.

“Recycling is an important facet of our industries; more demolition contractors are attending the show and this pavilion is one way CDRA serves industry needs,” stated Megan Tanel, CONEXPO-CON/AGG Show Director and AEM vice president exhibitions & events.  

Several sessions of particular relevance to the C&D recycling industry will be offered during the 2014 Conexpo. Sessions will cover topics including cold central asphalt recycling, use of pavement preservation treatments, LEED topics, recycled shingles in asphalt, and in-place recycling.   Conexpo 2014 will see 2,400 exhibitors showcasing new products and technologies for every major construction industry category, including asphalt, aggregates, concrete, earthmoving, lifting, mining, utilities, C&D, recycling and more. The show expects over 130,000 attendees that range from contractors, to dealers & distributors, to service providers, engineers, producers, municipalities, and more.   Also new at the 2014 show is the Platinum Lot exhibit area, combined with a reconfigured show footprint and better defined product concentration areas, will make it easier for attendees and exhibitors to connect with the people and companies they want to see.

CONEXPO-CON/AGG 2014 will also feature a new “exhibit suites” option as an additional opportunity for targeted attendee-exhibitor interaction.  

“The goal, as with all our planning, is to provide the best trade show value and create the most ROI for attendees’ and exhibitors’ show experience. These moves will definitely make a positive difference for 2014; attendees can search less to find what they need and spend more time with exhibitors doing business on the show floor,” Tanel added.  

CONEXPO-CON/AGG 2014 will be held March 4-8, 2014 at the Las Vegas Convention Center in Las Vegas, USA and is the global gathering place in North America every three years for the construction and construction materials industries.

The new CONEXPO-CON/AGG show footprint consolidates outdoor exhibit space into three large exhibit areas (Gold, Silver and Platinum Lots) to provide attendees with improved flow between the indoor and outdoor exhibit space. Attendees will also find more unified, better defined product concentration areas to help them make the most efficient and productive use of their time onsite, coupled with an enhanced internal shuttle system to more easily get from one show area to another.    

The new Platinum Lot is located across from South Hall on Swenson Drive and will feature both indoor and outdoor exhibits, the primary registration area, a full service restaurant, one of only two shuttle stops, restrooms and full utility access for show exhibitors. Its major product areas will be asphalt production/paving, aggregates processing and drilling equipment.  

The Platinum lot is also anticipated to positively affect attendee traffic flow for the co-located IFPE exposition, in South Hall, since it will be book-ended by major outdoor lots.  

Companies may also choose the new CONEXPO-CON/AGG exhibit suites option in addition to the show floor as a more personal setting to conduct private meetings, receptions and other attendee-focused events. Location is the adjacent Las Vegas Hotel (formerly Hilton) and the nearby Riviera. Participation in the exhibit suites program is on a first come, first served basis.
