With nearly two million square feet of floor space to cover, improving efficiency is perhaps more important during CONEXPO-CON/AGG and IFPE 2005 than during the normal workday. New tools will help attendees plan their visit in advance, then adjust their time in Las Vegas while staying in touch with home and office.
The personal itinerary planner is an advance-planning tool that lets attendees organize their visit, tracking educational sessions and maintaining a schedule of industry meetings. This planner works with the shows’ Virtual Trade Show, letting attendees search for exhibitors by name, product category, or booth number. They can make booth appointments and store them in their personal itinerary planner.
Once show-goers arrive, they can use information centers around the show floor to search the exhibitor directory. These kiosks will also provide dates, times and locations for industry association conventions and meetings, as well as technical sessions.
The information centers also let visitors access their e-mail from the show floor. “The ability to easily access e-mail from the show floor will also be extremely helpful,” said conference co-chair Gerald L. Shaheen, group president at Caterpillar Inc. of Peoria, IL.
