March 2, 2020 – ConExpo-Con/Agg show management has arranged for “No Handshake” buttons and stickers to be distributed at the show. In addition, large signage will be visible throughout the show to remind everyone of hygiene best practices and guidelines provided by the Center for Disease Control (CDC).
“We know how much a solid handshake can mean to engender trust and bonding between two people discussing major business decisions,” said Dana Wuesthoff, show director. “But in the interest of keeping everyone as healthy as possible, we want to impress upon everyone that it’s okay to replace that custom with something as simple as a thumbs-up, a wave, a fist or elbow bump, or even the exchange of mobile phone numbers.”
More than 4,000 new registrations for ConExpo-Con/Agg and IFPE, North America’s largest construction trade show, have been made since the beginning of this week with just days to go before the opening day on March 10 in Las Vegas. Advance registration is well ahead of the 2017 show and more than 130,000 are expected to attend to interact with more than 2,500 exhibitors.
