CONEXPO-CON/AGG is North America’s largest construction trade show representing asphalt, aggregates, concrete, earthmoving, lifting, mining, utilities and more. CONEXPO-CON/AGG is a result of the merger of CONEXPO and CON/AGG in 1996.[1] It is held at the Las Vegas Convention Center with the next show held March 10-14, 2020. The International Exposition for Power Transmission (IFPE) is held in conjunction with CONEXPO-CON/AGG.[2][3]

History[edit]

In 1909, the first CONEXPO was held in Columbus, Ohio, and the first CON/AGG was held in Detroit Michigan in 1928. In 1996 the two shows merged, creating CONEXPO-CON/AGG. The first joint show was held in 1996 in Las Vegas, Nevada. CONEXPO-CON/AGG has gone on to become the western hemisphere's largest show for the construction and construction materials industries.[4]
