ConExpo 2014 - Day 1 - North Hall Equipment

Picture 1 of 50

ConExpo 2014 kicked off with a bang with an opening ceremonies performance that included performers literally walking on the walls of the Las Vegas Convention Center, high above the crowd. After the ribbon cutting, things got under way and the crowds starting pouring in.

You could argue that the show’s main attraction is North Hall. Just about every major heavy equipment manufacturer has a presence in North Hall and they’ve pulled out all the stops for ConExpo-goers. Giant, wall-like screens hanging high in the air welcome the crowds in to a massive room completely filled with yellow iron. Above is our collection of photos from Day 1 of this amazing show.
