Conexpo 2011 and the co-located IFPE 2011 are known as global showcases of the latest equipment, product innovations and technological advances for the construction, construction materials and power transmission industries. Even though this year’s show attendance dropped by 16% compared to 2008, exhibitors and attendees alike were very pleased with the result of the 5-day event. “This has been a very successful event with high quality booth traffic,” was heard throughout the show floor. There has been a positive vibe at the show, with some exhibitors indicating that they actually have backlogs. The spirit in general was very positive at this year’s show and the outlook for 2011 states an increase of 8% of total construction activity advancing to USD 446 billion. Among the main sectors for this year’s construction market as forecasted by McGraw-Hill industry experts are:

single family housing
commercial buildings
multifamily housing
manufacturing buildings

Conexpo is held every three years at the Las Vegas Convention Center; the next edition of the triennial shows will be held from March 18 – 22, 2014.
