LAS VEGAS, NEV. — Big Show. Big Machines.
This year’s CONEXPO-CON/AGG is the largest ever at over 2.8 million square feet of exhibits, featuring 1,800 exhibitors. One of the big draws are the outdoor lots which feature some of the latest in heavy machinery, tools and innovations.
“Seeing the new equipment and techniques on a screen doesn’t compare to seeing it all in person,” explained Phil Kelliher, CONEXPO-CON/AGG show chair and Caterpillar vice-president, in a statement. “At the show, you can see the equipment, ask questions of the manufacturers themselves, and really understand what the equipment and education can do for your career and business.”
The Daily Commercial News (DCN) and The Journal Commerce (JOC) are taking daily Big Machine Walks to capture the variety and impressive size of these big machines via photos.
