Exhibit space sales opened yesterday for the 2014 ConExpo-Con/Agg and IFPE exhibitions, which will take place March 4-8, 2014, in Las Vegas, Nev. Companies submitting an application and deposit by the Aug. 15, 2012, priority deadline will be included in a virtual space draw to take place in fall 2012. After Aug. 15, companies will be assigned space on a first-come, first-served basis, according to product category.
Exhibit space rates include a package plan of booth services, including full drayage services, such as unloading/loading crated materials and machinery and delivering it to exhibit spaces from the marshaling yard and pick up at show close; general stand cleaning; and pipe and drape for standard inline exhibit stands.
Exhibitors also receive complimentary access to trade show education sessions. A complimentary show marketing kit provides exhibitors with materials to help them promote their company presence at the shows.
In a 2011 post-show exhibitor survey, 91 percent said they were very-satisfied-to-satisfied with their overall show experience, and 87 percent were very-satisfied-to-satisfied with the quality of attendees. The majority of show attendees were key company decision-makers, including 45 percent with the top titles of president/owner and vice president/general manager/chief financial officer.
