Among the results from the post-show surveys:

• Why buyers attended the shows: for CONEXPO-CON/AGG, 89% of attending contractors and 91% of attending producers had a “buying influence” for products at the shows; 73% of IFPE attendees also had a  “buying influence,” which is above the manufacturing/industrial exhibition average.  

• Attendees also ranked the shows’ value above the industry average for return on investment of time and money spent: 4.1 on a scale of 5 for CONEXPO-CON/AGG and 4.2 for IFPE (industry average is 3.7.)  

• Attendees’ top reason for attending: to examine the new products and technologies on display (92%). Some 87% said they wanted to check out specific companies/products, which emphasizes the reason for   exhibitors using pre-show promotion to encourage attendee traffic.  

• Other top reasons cited by attendees for their show participation: networking, personal professional development and meeting with technical experts.  

• Exhibitors were satisfied with the quality and quantity of attendees, and 91% said they were satisfied with their overall experience at CONEXPO-CON/AGG and IFPE 2011.
