CONEXPO-CON/AGG in 2017 will include a pavilion that features innovations.
As bauma winds down, CONEXPO-CON/AGG is heating up.

Officials of the Association of Equipment Manufacturers and other CONEXPO-CON/AGG organisers on Thursday offered a brief preview of what to expect in Las Vegas in 2017.

The show will be bigger than ever, with a 450,000m2 footprint, said Rich Goldsbury, AEM board member and the president of Bobcat North America and Oceania.

“It will be our largest show ever,” said Goldsbury, who spoke during a press conference at bauma.

AEM is continually focused on technology and telematics and that will be reflected in a new 7000m2 CONEXPO-CON-AGG pavilion that will put innovations on display and feature “emerging technologies that are driving change.”

Goldsbury said all contractors are interested in technological innovations, and for good reason. “Technology is tied to the bottom line,” he said.

More education also will be offered, including educating on the use of drones.

Another AEM spokesperson said virtually all metrics, including bookings, show the 2017 show to be 10 per cent ahead of the 2014 version – itself a record setter.

Thursday’s briefing opened with news.

AEM has advocated the development of industry-wide telematics standards and approval appears near, said Mike Haberman, president of Gradall and a member of the AEM board. He anticipates ISO approval by the end of April.

The standards will help businesses put more data into their preferred software. “It helps end-users access the information,” he said. “It’s certainly turning into a great direction for the industry.”
