NEW! CONEXPO-CON/AGG Exhibitor Webinar Series

The learning continues! Show Management has designed a webinar series that will highlight some of CONEXPO-CON/AGG’s new show features, including exhibitor badge packs, lead systems and beacon technology. In addition, segments are provided to learn from industry experts about ways to make the last show day impactful and how to reach a multigenerational audience. During the webinars, key deadlines will be highlighted to avoid late fees and let you know what’s important before you arrive on-site. Show Management is mindful of your busy schedules, so every session will be recorded and posted on the CONEXPO-CON/AGG website afterwards to allow exhibitors to view on-demand. For a full listing of programs and registration information, please visit the CONEXPO-CON/AGG website.

Key Show Management Personnel

Do you have a question on your company’s show planning?  Here is a list of show staff that can answer all of your questions.

Admission Badge Pricing for 2017

In structuring the 2017 badge fees, the Show Management Committee requested that AEM retain the services of a pricing analyst to research and recommend the registration fee structure. Over time, our badge fee increases have not kept up with inflation. The results of the pricing analysis concluded that our admission fee was underpriced in comparison to other leading shows and to the value the show provides.

While the show admission fees will increase, the Management Committee directed us to minimize the cost increase to exhibitors. Below you will see that the fee increase for exhibitors is substantially less than for the general attendee. In addition, exhibitors will be able to extend invitations to their customers and dealers at a substantial discount.

Admission + Transportation = Additional Value

As added value, the admission fee in 2017 will include not only the show badge but also multi-modal transportation to and from the show for both exhibitors and attendees. The admission fee will include not only deluxe coach bus transportation at most official hotels but also a multi-day Monorail pass at no additional charge. AEM will be looking into additional transportation values in Las Vegas, and we will keep you posted on additional developments.
