CONEXPO Russia Exhibition Announced by AEM

Inaugural Show to be Held September 15-18, 2008 in Moscow

The Association of Equipment Manufacturers (AEM) announces the formation of a new exhibition - CONEXPO Russia - in response to manufacturers seeking improved opportunities to showcase their products and technologies to the growing Russian marketplace. The inaugural show will be held September 15-18, 2008 at the Crocus Expo International Exhibition Center in Moscow.

CONEXPO Russia will focus on construction, forestry and utility equipment. AEM is organizing CONEXPO Russia in conjunction with the Exhibition and Marketing Centre, a Moscow-based exhibition organizer of DORKOMEXPO.

CONEXPO Russia has the support of key government agencies, contractor groups and major manufacturers, notes AEM, and Russian and international exhibitors will have a voice in the show's development and direction.

AEM is the North American-based international trade group for off-road equipment manufacturers, and it owns or co-owns and manages several leading industry trade shows, including the internationally-known CONEXPO-CON/AGG exhibition.

The Russian Association of Regional Highway Administrations (RADOR) has endorsed CONEXPO Russia. Russian manufacturer associations such as NEDRA are also endorsing CONEXPO Russia, and leading contractor associations, such as the Russian Builders Union and the Russian Builders Association, will be supporting this exhibition through assistance with educational programs and promotion to their members.

These leading manufacturers have already committed to exhibiting in the inaugural 2008 CONEXPO RUSSIA show: Blount, Caterpillar, Chetra, Finval-Stroy Company, GOMACO, JCB, Komatsu, KOMINVEST AKMT, Manitowoc, RemTechStroy, SZLK/Astec/RoadTec, SANY, Sermac Company, Techstroykontrakt (Hitachi), Terex and Volvo.

As with CONEXPO-CON/AGG and all AEM-run shows, the new CONEXPO RUSSIA show will be directed "by the industry and for the industry," with a manufacturer-led managing committee of exhibitors. This committee will guide the strategic direction of the show to focus on delivering reduced costs, improved return on investment and a high-quality event that meets the industry needs of exhibitors and attendees.
