Conexpo is extraordinary. Why? Because it combines the bizarre, surreal architecture and night life of Las Vegas with the latest technology and equipment of the construction industry. Add to that a very liberal sprinkling of glamour, gambling and glitz and you have a near ideal location for the biggest international gathering of the construction industry in 2002.
Business-wise the show will bring you right up to date with all that’s new in the lifting industry. All the big names will be there and some smaller ones from the US that you may not previously have heard of. The last CONEXPO-CON/AGG Show, held in 1999, featured over 1,880 exhibitors covering 1.7 million net square feet of space and was visited by more than 124,000 attendees from around the world.
The show takes place right next to the Las Vegas Hilton – in other words in the centre of town and just off the famous “Strip” which is home to the casinos, sports arenas and shows that are known throughout the world. This means the cranes, platforms and a whole gamut of construction equipment are sandwiched in between one of the biggest adult playgrounds in the world – and the lifting industry certainly knows how to play!
The rules of the competition are simple. Take your business card and write the answers to the three questions shown below on the back. If you don’t have a card, just cut a piece of paper to the approximate size, write your company name, address and your name on the paper and send it to us.
a> What is the Cranes & Access Web Site address?

c> What is the model number and maximum lift capacity of Demag’s new heavylift lattice boom crawler crane? (Clue: visit www.demag24.com)
Send your answers on the back of a business card to:
