Exhibit space sales for ConExpo-Con/Agg 2005 have broken the 1

Exhibit space sales for ConExpo-Con/Agg 2005 have broken the 1.5 million net sq ft mark with one year to go before the construction and construction materials show, which will be held March 15-19, 2005, at the Las Vegas Convention Center in Las Vegas.

To date, more than 875 exhibitors have reserved space for ConExpo-Con/Agg 2005, with the show attracting a mix of established and new exhibitors, large and small companies and products from all construction and construction materials industry segments, according to show organizers.

"ConExpo-Con/Agg 2005 is building momentum. Exhibitors understand the value this show will deliver by connecting them with more customers than any other event in the world in 2005," said ConExpo-Con/Agg Co-Chair Brenton Cook, central region president of Aggregate Industries, Kalamazoo, Mich.

Show management also notes that in addition to continuing demand for space from new exhibitors, many companies already in the show are increasing their exhibit space total.

"Economic conditions have improved significantly since space sales opened, so many exhibitors are expanding their exhibit plans. They know that their customers view ConExpo-Con/Agg as the place to find the industry's latest products and services and that they will come to the show ready to make purchasing decisions," said ConExpo-Con/Agg Co-Chair Gerald Sheehan, group president, Caterpillar Inc., Peoria, Ill.
