DAN: There is so much to see this year. The Global Operator Challenge finals are as big as ever. Operator Stadium will the site of great machine demos where you can see the machines in action.
LONNIE: Significant advancements in Cat machines, technology and services will be on display and demonstrated live at a level never witnessed before. Caterpillar’s Operator Stadium is the place to take a deep dive into what will elevate your business to greater heights.
KELLY: Immersive services experiences – this is a hard question because all the shows have been impressive. But, if I must pick, I have to say it is how there is a focus on showcasing the services that Caterpillar offers to help customers succeed – Rebuilds and Reman products saving money, Cat Central and SIS2GO apps reducing the time needed to search for the right parts and service manuals, Self Service Options for customers who prefer to do maintenance themselves and much more.
JASON: Bigger! Cat Operator Stadium is bigger and I have heard every available display space is sold out.
BARRY: Caterpillar took a completely different approach to the CONEXPO booth in 2020 with the creation of Operator Stadium. This year we are expecting to see even more live (in the dirt) demonstrations from OEMs, which should drive attendance across the LVCC property. With that said, we are taking our experience to the next level based on customer feedback and learnings from 2020. Our demonstrations and live program are going to be even more engaging, with more products, live personalities and opportunities for customers to see the greatest equipment operators in the world compete for the title during the Global Operator Challenge.
DAN: Take the time to watch the demos. Kicking the tires is great but seeing the machine in the dirt (where it belongs) is where you’ll really learn.
LONNIE: Connecting with experts — Leverage the opportunity to meet in-person with product, technology, services and site experts on the show floor! Consulting with these individuals that are the best-in-the-business will help you identify the solutions available and best fit for your business needs.
KELLY: Demo reset time – while there are scheduled demos highlighting the features of new machines, technology, services and sustainability, it is also a great opportunity to watch the machines in action as they reset the arena in between the scheduled demo times.
JASON: What’s underrated, I think, is talking with various product, technology and services experts in person. The best kept secret would be machine demonstrations highlighting new products and technologies.
BARRY: CONEXPO in Las Vegas is always a good mix of flash and flare for new products and going all out to bring the industry to life. However, it is also a gathering of the industry’s brightest minds and companies who are constantly innovating and pushing the industry into the future. The best way to see and learn what comes next can usually be found in the education sessions. You can attend panels, learn about the latest product invitations, and connect with other professionals within the industry all in one place. It’s a great opportunity to plan for the future and find new ways to grow your business.
