Associated General Contractors (AGC) of Texas hosted its 26th annual Trade & Equipment Show in Austin Convention Center, Oct. 19 and 20.

The event reinforced the two prevalent themes in 2009 for the salvation of the U.S. economy were highway construction and the need for immediacy, which puts this industry, once again, at the cutting edge of the economy. It is with these two themes in mind that AGC of Texas created the 2009 theme for the Trade and Equipment Show.

The AGC of Texas Trade and Equipment Show is still the biggest trade show in Texas, and drew people in the thousands. The show attracted highway, heavy, industrial, municipal, and utility contractors, as well as banking, computer, demolition, distributor, finance and insurance firms.

Additionally, manufacturers and suppliers along with TxDOT officials, county commissioners, and city managers attended the event.
