The Association of Equipment Manufacturers (AEM) and Hanley Wood LLC have agreed to co-locate two construction industry trade shows in China, with the first event scheduled for May 16-19, 2006, in Beijing. These co-located expositions will be titled ConExpo Asia and World of Concrete Asia.
AEM will own and produce ConExpo Asia; Hanley Wood will own and produce World of Concrete Asia. E J Krause & Associates will provide exhibition management to the co-located shows and will hold an equity interest in both ConExpo Asia and World of Concrete Asia.
The AEM-Hanley Wood plan calls for the co-located shows to be held triennially beginning with the 2006 expositions. Show organizers intend the co-located expositions to be part of a three-year cycle of global construction industry shows alternating with ConExpo-Con/Agg in North America and BAUMA in Germany.
AEM and Hanley Wood will also collaborate to develop and hold a combined education program featuring separate tracks for ConExpo Asia and World of Concrete Asia, based on the products represented in each show.
