May 29, 2023  By Don Horne

The Association of Equipment Manufacturers (AEM) has appointed Eric Sauvage, president and CEO of Link-Belt Excavator Company, as the chair of the 2026 CONEXPO, which will be held March 3-7 in Las Vegas, Nev.

“I am looking forward to working with Eric and to continuing to build on the success of the 2023 show,” says CONEXPO-CON/AGG Show Director Dana Wuesthoff. “Although the show isn’t until 2026, our planning is already in the works and Eric will be an excellent leader as we look to bring the industry back together again the next time we all meet in Las Vegas.”

Sauvage joined Link-Belt in 2008 and has been CEO of the company since 2016. In addition to that role, he has been an active participant in AEM leadership for many years, including his current position as vice chair of their construction equipment sector board.

“After the tremendous success of the 2023 show, the bar is set very high for 2026 CONEXPO-CON/AGG, and I am honoured to have the opportunity to work with the Association of Equipment Manufacturers (AEM) staff and the show’s management committee,” says Sauvage. “I plan to lean on that strong foundation to further strengthen and grow this world-class industry event while optimizing the value for our attendees and exhibitors.”
