New Campaign Touts Construction-industry Contributions

ConExpo-Con/Agg 2014 announced a campaign to raise greater public awareness of the accomplishments of the construction industry in elevating the country’s quality of life. The campaign will publicize the positive benefits of construction projects of all sizes and descriptions across the United States.

ConExpo-Con/Agg invites contractors and other industry professionals to submit projects for consideration in helping the campaign demonstrate construction’s contributions to quality of life. The campaign will spotlight 50 projects and culminate in a special recognition event at the 2014 show.

Contractors whose projects are selected to be covered will not only have the opportunity to garner publicity for their work; they will be featured at the event. (Each contractor and a guest will receive complimentary show admission plus airline tickets to Las Vegas and two nights in a hotel room.)

“ConExpo-Con/Agg 2014, as the global gathering place in North America every three years for the construction and construction materials industries, provides an ideal context for the culminating recognition event that will focus on the people of the construction industry and their significant contributions to our modern quality of life,” said Glen Tellock, ConExpo-Con/Agg 2014 chair and chairman and CEO of The Manitowoc Co.

Each project selected will be covered by an experienced construction communications professional, with a story, photography, and possibly video from the construction site. The outreach will include a variety of media outlets and stories will also be posted at

Construction projects can be submitted for consideration via the show website. A short and convenient online form asks for a brief project description and contact information. Stories for this effort can arise from all segments of the construction industry.

ConExpo-Con/Agg 2014 will be held March 4-8, 2014, at the Las Vegas Convention Center in Las Vegas.
