The shows will now be held March 4-8, 2014 at the Las Vegas Convention Center, Las Vegas, Nevada.
The Las Vegas Convention Center asked ConExpo-Con/Agg and IFPE management about the possibility of shifting the shows’ originally planned dates, a common practice in the exhibition industry, explained Megan Tanel, AEM vice president of exhibitions and events.
Tanel explained that although the two co-located shows bring substantial business to Las Vegas, they are held every third year. “The Center experiences challenges when booking its annual business; we are good partners with our host city and want success for them as well,” said Tanel.
“With the need to secure space and plan ahead, our goal is to have enough time to accommodate the move-in and move-out dates of our exhibitors while taking advantage of improved coordination of housing accommodations for our attendees,” added Tanel.
“The Las Vegas Convention Center is working closely with show management to mitigate any potential inconvenience and to help ensure a positive show run for all participants,” noted Tanel.
