– It has been a momentous day for the folks who put on ConExpo-Con/Agg, as AEM officially launched ConExpo Latin America in Santiago, Chile. I am pleased to be here representing Rock Products and Mining Media International. The crowds poured through the gates and flooded the aisles of this first-time event, a response that pleased the show’s organizers very much, to say the least. The first day was highlighted by educational sessions, including an aggregates track organized by Rock Products and moderated by me. The sessions were well-received and attendees asked a lot of technology related questions, indicating a real need for equipment information in this part of the world.
