LAS VEGAS (KSNV) — Thousands of people are expected to attend Conexpo-Con/Agg 2020 despite COVID-19 concerns.
The trade show’s creators call it North Americas Largest Construction trade show and it began this Tuesday at 9 a.m.
About 120,000 and around 2,300 exhibitors are expected to attend the event featuring the latest construction equipment and technology. Covid-19 concerns did not put an end to the show, but the show director tells News 3, some international exhibitors did cancel due to health concerns.
“Of course, have had some impact with the COVID-19,” said show director Dana Wuesthoff. “Most of that has been international-based. It’s still less than 1% of our total attendance.”
Show representatives say they are working with all of the show partners to make sure there is plenty of cleaning, sanitizing, and disinfecting options around the show.
