The Association of Equipment Manufacturers (AEM) and its member companies announced that the next CONEXPO Russia will be delayed until 2010 to allow the economy to improve, which will help generate even greater benefits for attendees, manufacturers and exhibitors.

The next CONEXPO Russia is now scheduled for May 19-22, 2010 so that companies can include CONEXPO Russia in their 2010 budgets.  It will be held at the Transport-Exhibition Complex (TEC) next to the Zhukovsky Airport, Moscow, Russia.

Some of the companies already supporting and participating in the next CONEXPO Russia include Chetra, Caterpillar, Terex, JCB, Komatsu, Volvo and the Gaz Group.

The show will provide unique opportunities for attendees to speak with leading manufacturers and experts about the latest construction industry innovations, products and technology.

The TEC is a unique facility which will enhance the manufacturer equipment demonstration opportunities for attendees at CONEXPO Russia, thus providing attendees with a valuable hands-on educational experience.  The show will also offer information on some of construction's most important business management issues, with internationally recognized experts covering topics such as high-tech applications, safe equipment operation, alternative fuels, alternative energy sources, and general management issues for efficiency.

CONEXPO Russia is directed by a management committee comprised of AEM member companies and exhibitors to ensure that the show provides the best return on investment for both exhibitors and attendees.

"The CONEXPO Russia management committee has wisely decided to look for the maximum benefits for attendees, manufacturers and exhibitors in the next show,” said GAZ Group’s Natalia Alexeeva, who is also chairman of the CONEXPO Russia Management Committee.  “The decision to hold the next CONEXPO Russia in 2010 instead of in 2009 demonstrates our strong commitment to looking for the best way to offer a superior show experience in the most cost-efficient manner.  Those involved in planning the next CONEXPO Russia see the greatest benefit resulting from this decision.”
