This is an exciting edition to CONEXPO-CON/AGG and IFPE and we strongly encourage exhibitors to enter.”

The awards program is open to all 2023 CONEXPO-CON/AGG and IFPE exhibitors in good standing that have created products or services for the construction industry that have one or more of the following characteristics:
