If you are in the market for the latest in recycling equipment and services, then CONEXPO-CON/AGG 2017 & IFPE 2017 is the place to do some highly effective shopping! Tens of thousands of industry members from around the world descend upon the Las Vegas Convention Center in Las Vegas, NV for this triennial event March 7-11, 2017. Co-sponsored by The Association of Equipment Manufacturers, The National Ready Mix Concrete Association, the National Stone Sand and Gravel Association, and The Associated General Contractors of America, several industries are represented at this massive event. The IFPE 2017 Technical Conference is also held jointly in this venue as well.
With 2014’s attendance in excess of 130,000, organizers are expecting an increase for the upcoming event. New product introductions were the highlight of many of the exhibits. In some cases, new companies and re-introductions of old familiar ones, make debuts as well. For example, in 2014, Kobelco Construction Machinery announced its re-entry into the North American market as the sole sales and marketing entity for their product line.
New Products and Services Abounded at the 2014 event
Most attendees expect companies to introduce new products at events like this one. For example, Allu introduced their company’s new M Series “Monster.” This product is designed for soft rock and mineral mining where one pass at the shot rock, with an excavator or loader, gives operators an opportunity to process the material into a product that is screened and ready to use as-is. By cutting unnecessary steps, from a seven step process to a two step process, the use of the ALLU M Series bucket, crusher/screener, is the ideal solution. The unit is available for 50-80 ton excavators and 50-60 ton wheel loaders. Larger sizes are available upon request.
And so it goes, for five spectacular days. Attendees will be able to take the time to find the manufacturer of choice for just about any product or service that is a priority. So if you haven’t already, start making your plans to attend, today! For more information, visit www.conexpoconagg.com .
