The platform provides contractors with access to new products, equipment experts and industry connections, according to Nicole Hallada, AEM vice president of marketing and communications.
“CONEXPO Connect brings a new dimension to the industry by giving contractors access to equipment experts and manufacturers similar to what they would have at ConExpo-Con/Agg, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year,” Hallada says.
The announcement of the new site comes ahead of the next ConExpo, to be held March 10-14, 2020, in Las Vegas. ConExpo is North America’s largest trade show and is held every three years.
The site can be accessed by clicking this link: CONEXPO Connect.
After users register for the site, they can do the following:
- Research new products in asphalt, concrete, earthmoving, lifting, underground, aggregate and other off-road categories.
- Message manufacturers and request quotes.
- Keep up with industry news from participating brands.
Currently, 30 brands have signed up to participate in CONEXPO Connect, according to AEM.
“The platform complements a buyer’s experience at ConExpo-Con/Agg by allowing them to explore more online, ask questions and compare products before and after the show,” Hallada says.
