Both Air-Seal Products directors and our office manager were over the pond exhibiting at the largest construction show in North America last week. CONEXPO 2023 was held at the convention centre in Las Vegas from the 14th-18th March.
The five-day show surpassed estimated attendance numbers and drew in over 139,000 construction professionals from over 133 countries, making this show 6% larger than 2020. With over 3 million net square feet of exhibit space covered by 2,400 exhibitors, you certainly needed the whole week to see the whole show. Even Managing Director, Alex, was amazed by some of the never seen before equipment that was on display and was told that if you walked every floor of the show then you would cover over 70 miles!
Air-Seal Products met many new faces at CONEXPO, but it took travelling over 5000+ miles to catch-up with a familiar face from the UK. Existing customer Richard Melton from BSP International Foundations Ltd, world leaders in the manufacturing of hydraulic piling hammers, Rapid Impact Compactors (RICS) and road maintenance machinery, was also exhibiting at the show.
As the construction show draws in attendees from around the world, this was a perfect opportunity for Air-Seal to expand its export business. Many interesting conversations were held regarding distribution opportunities in over 30 countries including China, Brazil, and Mexico.
Air-Seal Director, Kerstin Burnand, caught up with huge social media influencer, Stanley “Dirt Monkey” Genadek who has been in the landscaping / excavating business for 20 years and is considered the voice of the industry by his peers. Stanley had nothing but great things to say about our range of premier products, having previously used them himself!
This impressive trade show is held every three years in Las Vegas so is set to return to the convention centre once again in 2026.
