An impending expansion of the Las Vegas Convention Center will impact exhibit space for CONEXPO-CON/AGG 2020.
The convention center’s Gold Lot will not be available for use during the 2020 event, but AEM is currently working with the MGM Group to secure additional exhibiting space in close proximity to the facility.
“Looking toward the future, AEM is very excited about the growth potential of CONEXPO-CON/AGG,” said AEM Vice President of Exhibitions and Event Services Dana Wuesthoff. “In the meantime, we are maintaining the show size with plans to accommodate the needs of the industry in the future.”
The proposed is equipped to accommodate both indoor and outdoor space, as well as show services to support attendees and exhibitors. Once agreements between AEM and the MGM Group are finalized, additional details on the name, location and features of the new space will be provided.
The co-located IFPE show will be unaffected by the expansion effort, and it will continue to be located in the South Hall second level of the convention center.
AEM has worked closely with the Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authorities (LVCA) and other show organizers to support the convention center expansion effort, which will include a new exhibit hall in the Gold Lot, renovations to existing exhibit halls and enhancements to meeting space. The project is slated to commence in 2018 and conclude in 2022.
“AEM is actively engaging on your behalf for the success of the event," said Wuesthoff. “We’re looking forward to expanding our show footprint with the addition of the new lot we will be using in 2020 and the new Gold Lot exhibit hall that will be complete in 2021. In working collaboratively with our membership through the various planning and management committees, we see this additional space as a positive solution to the ever increasing need for event space.”
