The Association of Equipment Manufacturers last week announced the next ConExpo Asia exhibition will be held November 16-19, 2009, at the Chinese Import and Export Fair - Pazhou Complex in Guangzhou, China. ConExpo Asia offers exhibits of construction technologies, equipment, products and services from Chinese and non-Chinese exhibitors. The event also features working equipment demonstrations, extensive industry-focused education sessions and co-located industry meetings and events.
The most recent ConExpo Asia, in 2007, was held at the Guangzhou facility, and ConExpo Asia 2009 will be able to take advantage of the exposition center’s recent expansion, which includes additional indoor and outdoor exhibit space as well as new meeting and function rooms. ConExpo Asia 2007 more than doubled in size compared to the inaugural show, held in 2006, in terms of exhibit space and number of attendees. The 2007 show had 28,000 visitors from 115 countries, compared to the 2006 event’s 13,000 attendees from 75 countries. About 20 percent of attendance was international, and show organizers expect to significantly increase that number for the 2009 ConExpo Asia. According to organizers, a high percentage of attendees were in key management and purchasing positions.
Guangzhou is located in the important Pearl River Delta region in southern China, near Hong Kong. For more information, visit www.conexpoasia.com.
