Aggregate dredging equipment manufacturers were a small but vital part of last year’s CONEXPO-CON/AGG and IFPE show, held March 22 through 26, 2011 in Las Vegas. Producers turned out in force to visit dredge manufacturers and makers of other equipment, such as cutters, pumps and automation equipment. Larry Patella took the Western Dredging Association booth to the show, and many producers stopped by to pick up literature and drop off their cards. There were nearly 120,000 registered attendees, and 2,400 exhibitors in more than 2.34 million square feet of exhibit space. VIPs visiting the show were U.S. Secretary of Transportation Ray LaHood, U.S. Department of Commerce Assistant Secretary Suresh Kumar and numerous other government officials. The next CONEXPO-CON/AGG and IFPE expositions will be held on March 4 through 8, 2014 at the Las Vegas Convention Center.
