New CONEXPO-CON/AGG 2014 Campaign Hails Construction Industry Quality-of-life Contributions

CONEXPO-CON/AGG 2014 next week is announcing a campaign to raise greater public awareness of the accomplishments of the construction industry, including equipment manufacturers, in elevating our quality of life. The campaign will publicize the positive benefits of construction projects of all sizes and descriptions across the United States.

The campaign calls wider attention to industry achievements and provides a platform to promote the benefits of attending CONEXPO-CON/AGG.

CONEXPO-CON/AGG invites contractors and other industry professionals to submit projects for consideration in helping the campaign demonstrate construction’s contributions to quality of life. The campaign will spotlight 50 projects and culminate in a special recognition event at the 2014 show.

Contractors whose projects are selected to be covered will not only have the opportunity to garner publicity for their work; they will be featured at the event. (Each contractor and a guest will receive complimentary show admission plus airline tickets to Las Vegas and two nights in a hotel room.)

“CONEXPO-CON/AGG 2014, as the global gathering place in North America every three years for the construction and construction materials industries, provides an ideal context for the culminating recognition event that will focus on the people of the construction industry and their significant contributions to our modern quality of life,” stated Glen Tellock, CONEXPO-CON/AGG 2014 chair and chairman and CEO of The Manitowoc Company.

Each project selected will be covered by an experienced construction communications professional, with a story, photography and possibly video from the construction site. The outreach will include a variety of media outlets and stories will also be posted at

Construction projects can be submitted for consideration via the show website. A short and convenient online form asks for a brief project description and contact information. Stories for this effort can arise from all segments of the construction industry (see the show website for more details.)

For more information and questions, contact show management’s Rich Jefferson (, tel: 414-298-4122). CONEXPO-CON/AGG 2014 will be held March 4-8, 2014, at the Las Vegas Convention Center in Las Vegas, USA.
