CEG Productions held the Philadelphia Construction Expo Tuesday and Wednesday, March 9 and 10 at the Greater Philadelphia Expo Center in Oaks, Pa.
Hundreds of pieces of heavy and light construction equipment were on display, as well as trucks, trailers, attachments and all related contractor supplies, products and services.
The Association of Builders & Contractors (ABC) hosted a dedicated pavilion featuring a wide variety of exhibits. ABC hosted “Meet the Contractor,” a speed networking program designed to assist professionals in making contacts that will keep their businesses growing.
The show also featured a variety of seminars on relevant topics designed to give attendees the solutions to the challenges facing their companies and also to expand their network of professional colleagues. Topics included: two hot OSHA-related topics presented by ABC of Southeastern PA: “What’s New at OSHA,” a discussion of what to expect in the future from both the national and regional OSHA offices, and “OSHA: Recent National and Local Emphasis Programs.”
Brubacher Excavating presented “Trenching & Excavating Safety Awareness” — a topic that OSHA has targeted for inspections over the past several years. PA One Call presented “The Tolerance Zone … how to calculate it and how to work with prudent techniques within it.” LICA presented a variety of timely seminars, including “Introduction to Adopting Positioning Technology for Construction,” “You’re Not Sellin’, They’re Buyin’,” “Expanding Your Business Services” and “Equipment Security”
New to the show this year was the Virtual Totebag, which gave attendees the ability to download brochures and seminar materials to their mobile devices. Not only does the Virtual Totebag make it easy to be green, it makes it easy for attendees to store and share information collected at the event, without having to tote around pounds of paper.
Ryan Reese of G. Galli Masonry Restorations, King of Prussia, Pa., was the grand prize winner of a 32-in. LG flat screen television, donated by CEG Productions.
