Education and Exhibits: Industry Best Practices & Product Innovations
The Complete Infra Equipment Partner
Hundreds of industry meetings, including annual conventions of eight industry associations, were held in conjunction with the shows in recognition of their reputation as an industry gathering place. More than 200 US and international allied industry and business organisations signed on as official supporting organisations and more than 300 as supporting media.
“Our ability to work with competitors to organise this event provides an added benefit and contributes to the show, exhibitor and attendees success. As we have said before, this is a show put on by the industry – for the industry,” said
Mike Haberman, President, Gradall Industries and Association of Equipment Manufacturers (AEM) 2017 Chair. “Here we can share
ideas and knowledge that will help the construction industry to grow and prosper.”
The shows received US Department of Commerce (DOC) International Buyer Program status, signifying their status as a leading worldwide event, and offered a variety of services to facilitate international industry participation, including an International Trade Center onsite.
US buyer attendance jumped over 16 per cent from the 2014 show, and total buyer attendance improved by almost 8 per cent.
Overall contractor and producer attendance grew by 10 per cent.
Total attendance neared 128,000 for the week.
Almost half of all attendees serve in executive positions at their company, and more than 3-in-5 attendees serve in a decision-making role.
Almost 26,000 international attendees from 150 countries braved global headwinds including a strong dollar and flagging export markets and composed nearly 20 per cent of overall attendance.
Attendees purchased a record-breaking 52,000 tickets for education sessions at the show, a 26 percent increase from the 2014 show. Total ticket sales excluding IFPE jumped by over 27 percent compared to 2014.
