Las Vegas, NV — IFPE 2005, the International Exposition for Power Transmission, scheduled to take place March 15-19, 2005, at the Las Vegas Convention Center in Las Vegas, Nev., will be a record-breaking show. It will be the largest IFPE in the history of the event, with more than 110,000 net square feet (10,200 sq m)of exhibit space already reserved.

The co-located Conexpo-Con/Agg 2005 exhibit space sales also have topped a record-breaking 1.85 million net square feet (172,000 sq m), making the 2005 show the largest ever.

The shows are expected to attract more than 100,000 industry professionals from around the globe. They will showcase the latest equipment, services and technologies for the construction, construction materials and power transmission industries.

Show management attributes the very positive numbers to an improved economy over the past year or so, including pent-up demand to replace aging fleets, coupled with the shows’ reputation as a global one-stop source for comparison shopping and purchasing, industry educational programs and networking opportunities.

The last combined shows, held in 2002, attracted an audited attendance of more than 108,770. For more information, phone 1-800-867-6060 or visit www.ifpe.com.
