Don’t Miss Out – 4 Reasons You Should Sign Up Early for CONEXPO Latin America 2019 Exhibit Space

Deadline Is August 3 for Priority Space Assignment

Companies looking to reach prime Latin American construction markets are already signing up to exhibit at CONEXPO Latin America 2019 to showcase their latest equipment and product innovations.

Here are four key reasons why.

  1. You need to be a part of the industry’s CONEXPO-quality regional gathering place.

“CONEXPO Latin America delivers an unparalleled opportunity for companies to raise their visibility in this important region, in a CONEXPO-quality event tailored to regional needs,” said Fred Vieira, CONEXPO Latin America show manager for Association of Equipment Manufacturers (AEM).

“Whether it is CONEXPO Latin America or the flagship CONEXPO-CON/AGG exhibition every three years in Las Vegas, the scope might be different but our goal is the same: to help visitors, manufacturers and all show participants have a successful, profitable show experience,” said Vieira.

CONEXPO Latin America is set for October 2-5, 2019 in Santiago, Chile, offering a CONEXPO-quality experience where all construction industry stakeholders can conveniently meet and share the latest best practices and technology trends.

CONEXPO Latin America will feature a new, optimized floorplan and will be held at Espacio Riesco, in co-location with the building materials exhibition Expo Edifica.

  1. Timing matters.

“Starting with 2019, CONEXPO Latin America moves to a three-year cycle, so don’t miss this chance to reach thousands of qualified buyers who are looking to the future and the equipment and products that will help them succeed,” said Vieira.

Submit your exhibit space application by the August 3 priority deadline to obtain early-bird space rates and to be included in the first round of exhibit booth placements. After that date, space will be assigned on a first come, first served basis. 

  1. Take advantage of business conditions in a vital world region.

Latin America continues to offer significant business opportunities for construction-related equipment manufacturers and suppliers.

The industry is coming out of recession and analysts point to the potential for substantial and sustainable recovery after the stabilization of major economies, with the potential for positive changes in administration, then providing the necessary environment for continued investment.

The positive outlook is supported by higher commodities prices, solid global growth, and lower regional inflation. These changes could improve the already positive projections for heavy equipment demand in the region.

Overall, construction industry spending in Latin America is forecasted to total more than $596 billion U.S. dollars by 2021. The region is estimated to have more than $285 billion U.S. dollars in projects currently in the works, with another $573 billion U.S. dollars in projects preparing to be under construction, according to 2017 data from Business Monitor International and IHS Markit.

The heavy construction equipment market in Latin America was valued at more than $4.3 billion U.S. dollars in 2016 and is expected to reach approximately $6.4 billion U.S. dollars by 2022, representing a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 6.8 percent from 2016 to 2022. In this projection from Allied Market Research, the construction segment accounted for the dominant share in the total heavy construction equipment market in 2016.

  1. Take advantage of CONEXPO-quality support.  

CONEXPO Latin America continues to work with vendors and business partners in the region to elevate trade show standards as they relate to exhibitor and attendee services such as lead retrieval, which directly impact ROI. AEM also adds value by offering marketing support to help exhibiting OEMs, dealers and service providers promote their show presence to customers and prospects.

The show offers indoor and outdoor exhibit space with a variety of options for companies to choose what best fits their needs, from “raw” space to full-stand construction for indoor booths. In addition, AEM members receive an exhibit space discount. And all CONEXPO Latin America exhibitors benefit from AEM’s high level of customer service.

“Please contact us with any questions, and we invite you to visit our CONEXPO Latin America exhibit booth (Pavilion 4, #730) if you are at M&T Expo in June in Sao Paulo so we can discuss how we can help your business,” Vieira added.
