Young Leaders Event ConExpo-Con/Agg show is hosting the inaugural ConExpo-Con/ Agg Young Leaders Event, which will bring together up-and-com- ing industry leaders to share ideas and build relationships for the future. The event features a luncheon with keynote speaker. Contractors, producers, fleet managers, distributors and oth- ers involved in the construction industries who are under 40 years old are encouraged to participate; it's also an ideal opportunity for companies to spotlight their emerging leaders. The ConExpo-Con/Agg Young Leaders Event, set for Wednes- day, March 5, 2014, provides an opportunity for these future lead- ers to take a quiet break from the hectic show floor to engage with each other, to learn from seasoned veterans and to expand their industry networks. "ConExpo-Con/Agg is the perfect place to recognize the excel- lence of our next generation; it's where the industry gathers and where the next generation of new technologies is on display," said Megan Tanel, show director. The event has widespread industry association support and is sponsored by Construction Equipment magazine's "Under 40 in Construction Equipment Awards." "Our young leaders can also participate in focused education while at the show as well as find the equipment and products that will help them achieve continued success," Tanel said.

Employment declined for nearly five years, by 1.9 million or 25 percent from 7.7 million in April 2006, seasonally adjust- ed, to 5.4 million in January 2011. By August 2013, the industry had regained fewer than 400,000 jobs. • Construction spending totaled $857 billion in 2012, a 9 per- cent increase from 2011 but 27 percent below the peak year of 2006. Public construction spending totaled $279 billion (down 3 percent from 2011); private nonresidential spend- ing, $298 billion (up 16 percent from 2011); and private residential, $280 billion (up 16 percent from 2011).
