Each year, the construction industry patiently awaits the arrival of CONEXPO-CON/AGG, which brings together businesses and professionals that focus on asphalt, aggregates, concrete, earthmoving, lifting, mining, utilities and more. CONEXPO-CON/AGG 2017 will be no different, as the industry will gather at the Las Vegas Convention Center from March 7-11.
More than 2,500 exhibitors are expected to cover the 2.5 million square feet of space and John Deere will once again be amongst the many.
So, what can attendees expect from John Deere at CONEXPO-CON/AGG 2017? Let’s take a closer look:
John Deere’s exhibit will span across more than 38,000 square feet of space, which will be occupied by 38 machines, 11 John Deere simulators, the John Deere store, and an information counter. The counter and the floor space will be manned by more than 280 John Deere experts that will be on hand to answer questions and showcase the latest technology.
The fleet of 38 machines that will be on hand at this year’s event include articulated dump trucks (ADTs), backhoe loaders, crawler dozers, motor graders, excavators, compact track loaders (CTLs), scraper systems, tractor loaders, skid steers, wheel loaders, and a wide variety of compatible attachments.
Kiosks, Touch Wall, and Demo Stations
Along with the fleet of equipment, there will be customer support kiosks, a touch wall, and interactive demo stations scattered across the space.
