Most exhibitors are participating at CONEXPO -CON/AGG, organisers say

The organisers of CONEXPO -CON/AGG 2020 say an overwhelming majority of exhibitors have confirmed their participation at the show in Las Vegas.

Dennis Slater, president of the Association of Equipment Manufacturers, says: With all the news about COVID-19 and the speculation regarding CONEXPO-CON/AGG & IFPE, I want to provide an update on planning, including commitments and cancellations. Here is where we stand.”

  • Travel restrictions related to international travel and corporate policies have impacted some companies that planned to exhibit at the show. 

  • The CONEXPO-CON/AGG cancellations that we’ve received represent 44,950 square feet out of 2.7 million net sq. ft. of exhibit space, which represents about 1.7 percent of the total space. We’ve re-sold 15,000 square feet of this cancelled space.

  • No major exhibitors have cancelled from CONEXPO-CON/AGG and many companies are reconfirming their commitment to participate. We appreciate their leadership and commitment to our industry, equipment end-users and our members.

  • We may see more cancellations, but the majority of cancellations have been limited to booths 400 sq. ft. and under.

  • We have already resold 15,500 sq. ft. of this cancelled exhibit space.

  • For attendance, we have added 18,000 new registrants since Feb. 21 when the travel restrictions and coronavirus started to have an impact. That total is far outpacing the last show and also our cancellations to date.

  • Customer cancellations are focused on international registrants and some big U.S. corporate customers placing travel restrictions.

  • Total registrations as of yesterday is more than 120,000 and climbing. Even if the cancellations total 10,000, which they don’t to date, we have a huge audience of customers coming to the show. 

  • For IFPE, the event has been harder hit by cancellations due to the large international exhibitor presence and corporate travel policies.

  • The IFPE cancellations that we’ve received represent 34,680 square feet, which represents about 20 percent of the show floor. We’ve re-sold 3,300 square feet of this cancelled space.

We know customers are committed to attending the show in numbers and they are expecting to see and purchase equipment from the manufacturers of the best equipment in the world,” Slater added.
