New for the next ConExpo-Con/AGG exposition, to be held in 2011, is the co-location of the 2011 International Concrete Exposition, also known as ICON Expo. The shows will be held March 22 to 26, 2011, at the Las Vegas Convention Center in Las Vegas.
ICON Expo is organized by the National Concrete Masonry Association (NCMA) in conjunction with other leading industry groups, and serves the needs and interests of the concrete products industry, including producers, suppliers, designers, architects and specifiers. The expo rounds out exhibits with product demonstrations, an education program and social networking events.
A successful ICON Expo was first staged in 2009 and is held annually. The expo continues NCMA’s longstanding commitment to an industry-wide show for concrete, masonry and hardscape products, with the history including Masonry Expo and the more recent Manufactured Concrete Products Exposition.
“We are very pleased that ICON Expo is joining with ConExpo-Con/AGG. They represent an important industry segment, and their participation broadens the scope of products for attendees and enriches the quality of industry interaction,” stated Show Director Megan Tanel.
“This is an exciting opportunity for our members. Our industry is becoming much more global, and what better place than ConExpo-Con/AGG to gain exposure to the wider construction marketplace and the latest trends worldwide,” stated NCMA President Robert Thomas.
Tanel noted that ICON Expo is an industry-run show just like ConExpo-Con/AGG, and the two events share a similar philosophy of partnering to provide additional value to participants.
“We both want our members, exhibitors and attendees to get the most ROI out of their trade show experience,” she stated.
Joining with NCMA in ICON Expo 2011 as partners are the Cast Stone Institute (CSI) and the Interlocking Concrete Pavement Institute (ICPI). The Expanded Shale, Clay and Slate Institute (ESCSI) and Portland Cement Association (PCA) also participate as show sponsors.
Joining in ConExpo-Con/AGG as principal sponsors are Association of Equipment Manufacturers, National Ready Mixed Concrete Association and National Stone, Sand and Gravel Association, with Associated General Contractors of America as sponsor.
