ConExpo-Con/Agg 2005 and International Fluid Power Exposition (IFPE) 2005 show management has set a new format for the expositions' pre-show exhibitor meeting that uses the Internet to provide convenient and continued access to show planning and educational materials. The triennial exhibitions will be held March 15-19, 2005, at the Las Vegas Convention Center in Las Vegas NV.
This new format will feature live, online educational seminars presented by show staff and industry experts. A library of “e-seminars” on topics of importance to exhibitors will be available until the opening of the shows. This material will be presented in an easy-to-use and convenient online format, and exhibitors can choose the subjects which best meet their needs.
Show management modified the traditional meeting format, which had focused on a Las Vegas event, based on exhibitor input that showed a declining interest in such a gathering due to time and expense for companies to participate. Besides the new online educational sessions, show management provides regular informational updates to exhibitors and is available to address exhibitors' individual questions concerning their specific needs.
ConExpo-Con/Agg 2005 and IFPE 2005 are expected to host some 2,300 exhibitors taking 1.85 million net square feet of exhibit space to display the latest equipment, products, services, and technologies.
