The Association of Equipment Manufacturers’ (AEM) triennial CONEXPO-CON/AGG has won best North American trade show honors for 2014.

The Trade Show News Network (TSSN) selected the international construction industries exhibition for the No. 1 spot on its annual “Top 250” trade show rankings. The rankings are based on net square feet of exhibit space.

CONEXPO-CON/AGG 2014 spread over more than 2.35 million net square feet. A record-breaking 2,111 exhibitors and 97,091 attendees filled the March 3-8, 2014, show, which featured the latest construction equipment, products, services and technology.

“CONEXPO-CON/AGG could not have achieved the number-one spot without the support of our membership and the industry, and their affirmation of our value and return on participation for all stakeholders,” Megan Tanel, AEM’s vice president exhibitions and events, said in a statement.

The next exhibition is March 7–11, 2017, in Las Vegas.
