Of course, all the important stuff for UK and European buyers happens nearer to home. The Bauma fair in Munich is a much bigger deal – more machines, more people, more everything. Except possibly fun. Las Vegas knows how to do that rather well.
Both Bauma and Conexpo take place evey three years. As Bauma was last year, Conexpo is the biggest international event in the construction equipment calendar this year.
Anyway, here's my first post on Conexpo 2014. It shows the Liebherr stand, which covers 4,600 square metres (50,000 square feet). It is impressive, of course. At Bauma, however, which is Liebherr's home show, it takes more than 14,000 square metres.
If you are in Vegas and want to share your photos with Digger Blog readers, please send them in.
