CONEXPO-CON/AGG is committed to positively impacting our attendees, exhibitors, and the Las Vegas community.
Health and Safety
Your health and safety are our top priorities. We continue to work with vendors and the Las Vegas Convention Center to ensure a safe experience for all guests.
The LVCC successfully demonstrated correct work practices, procedures and systems are in place to protect our staff and guests from outbreaks and pandemics while at our facility. Select staff members have achieved their GBAC-TRAINED TECHNICIAN certification and educate and monitor LVCC staff in their cleaning and sanitation processes. The LVCC was the first facility in Nevada to receive the accreditation.
Event Community Guidelines
CONEXPO-CON/AGG and IFPE are committed to establishing a welcoming and safe community of participants in conferences, tradeshows, live and virtual events, and other CONEXPO-CON/AGG and IFPE forums and platforms.
To achieve this, we ask that all participants follow these community guidelines:
- Interact with respect and consideration
- Create a safe environment for all
- Avoid demeaning, discriminatory, or harassing behavior, materials, and speech - both spoken and written
- Follow the rules and policies of the meeting, event, venue, hotel, or other contracted facilities
Our commitment to sustainability
CONEXPO-CON/AGG and IFPE are committed to reducing the environmental impact of the shows, through partnering with vendors that are dedicated to sustainable practices and reducing waste, helping exhibitors and attendees choose more sustainable options and measuring our total 2023 environmental impact to identify future improvements.
In addition, CONEXPO-CON/AGG & IFPE 2023 had the biggest focus on sustainability since the show began in 1948. The construction industry and CONEXO-CON/AGG have evolved in many ways to adapt and showcase sustainable technologies, products and practices that allow us to build a more sustainable world.
Sustainability in Action
More than ever before, show attendees will see sustainability in action, from electric and hydrogen powered construction equipment, to more recyclable materials and waste reduction opportunities, to changes the show is making to better support sustainability.
CONEXPO-CON/AGG has given sustainability its own education track in its seminar offerings, now with thirteen sessions dedicated to the topic. Those sessions tackle subjects like reducing the carbon footprint of concrete, getting and managing electric construction equipment, asphalt and concrete recycling, carbon neutrality, and a “Sustainability 101” session for attendees just now starting their sustainability journey.
Sustainability at the Show
The sustainability efforts at CONEXPO-CON/AGG reflect the focus on sustainability within the entire construction industry. Many construction companies have realized that their clients are demanding sustainable building practices more and more with each project, and contractors themselves are recognizing the benefits of moving to more sustainable equipment and practices.
As part of the show’s commitment to sustainability, we have worked with our many vendors and service providers to ensure sustainability best practices, including:
- Carpet: Offer carpet options that can be re-purposed and recycled; use soy-based padding made from recycled materials.
- Graphics: Print all single-use rigid graphics on high quality recyclable substrates, aisle signs on 100% recyclable, high quality paper with only non-VOC inks.
- Booths: Offer modern, reusable rental building structures, which are 100% recyclable. Provide recycled and re-purposed fabric drape.
- Rental furniture: Reduce landfill impact by offering rental furniture options for non-rental items.
- AV equipment: Use energy-efficient (Energy Star) electronic equipment when available and mandate power- down policy—all AV equipment is turned off overnight when possible.
- Show floor: Reduce carbon footprint and travel costs by using local union labor and provide plentiful waste and recycling bins on the show floor.
- Trucks: Enacting an engine idling policy at all loading dock locations.
- Food Service: Donating recovered food to local social service agencies and diversion of food waste to local resources.
- Plastic Reduction: Las Vegas Convention Center has 99 free water bottle fill stations, allowing exhibitors and attendees to refill their own bottles without the plastic bottle waste.
