CONEXPO 2017

This year’s ConExpo show represented an immense unveiling of the newest equipment, technology and product breakthrough in construction. From earthshaking big iron to ground breaking innovations, it’s all assembled in one place to help you work smarter. If it’s new, it was there – there was plenty to see!

The show consisted of 2,500 exhibitors showcasing new products and technologies from for every major construction industry including asphalt, aggregates, concrete, earthmoving, lifting, mining, utilities and more. There were over 150,000 attendees that range from contractors, to dealers & distributors, to service providers, engineers, producers, municipalities, and more.

The theme of Topcon’s impressive booth (far more attractive and punchy than the competition, in our humble opinion!) was “The Intersection of Infrastructure and Technology”. Unlike previous years when Topcon has spread its portfolio across a number of different sites, this year all solutions were visible in the one location, which not only made it easier to learn about all that was on offer but also signals the shift in our industry away from product silos to integrated platforms.

The booth was broken up into the different construction product areas, such as Survey, Layout, Paving, Grading, Excavating, etc and was highlighted by the very impressive SmoothRide Theatre and the Dozer Arena, which ran shows a couple of times an hour throughout the day to go through applications and features of the MC product.

Upstairs featured a VIC (Very Important Customer) area where dealers and customers could have a drink and take a break from the show, there were also meeting rooms behind the booth that we could hold meetings with customers.

We had 4 Position Partners staff working on the booth for a portion of the show, all spent their time interfacing with customers on the booth in the North Hall, writing up quotes and spreading the word about all things Topcon. An excellent experience for our guys, who were looked after very well by Greg Frankish our Regional Manager and the rest of the Topcon team throughout the week.

Here’s a time lapse video of Topcon’s stand build:

 

 

This year Position Partners was joined by our largest ever Australian contingent, with around 170 of our valued customers coming to check out the latest developments in the industry. It was great for everyone to get an opportunity to talk to Topcon representatives and other contractors at this show that is like no other!
