Construction Expo II Set for Jan. 2008 in Chicago

Fri September 14, 2007 - Midwest Edition

It’s never too early to start thinking about the Second Annual Chicago Construction Expo. The event will be held Jan. 8 to 9, 2008, at the Renaissance Convention Center in Schaumburg, Ill.

The pillar-free convention hall, where more than 100 exhibits will be on display, is a good place for contractors, landscapers and public works officials to converge.

Exhibitors will showcase the newest equipment models from all of the major manufacturers, as well as parts, attachments, trucks and trailers, and all of the ancillary industry products and services.

Door prizes, donated by the exhibitors, will be awarded throughout the show, and show-goers are likely to run into a celebrity or two as they travel the show floor.

Although the show is still four months away, it is already more than 80 percent sold and is expected to sell out completely well before the show date.

Show hours are Tuesday, Jan. 8 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Wednesday, Jan. 9 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Parking and admission are free.

The show is produced by the trade show division of Construction Equipment Guide.
