Fort Atkinson, WI (PRWEB) April 28, 2014
A show as influential as CONEXPO-CON/AGG & IFPE generates news even after the show closes, evidenced by continuing coverage from Cygnus Construction Network for its audience of 222,897 construction professionals.
Cygnus’s editorial team continues to share news from THE BIG SHOW through its eight print magazines, 11 digital newsletters and two show microsites. Its Best of THE BIG SHOW supplement, highlighting the team’s top news and product picks, mails with the April issues of Concrete Contractor®, Equipment Today®, Asphalt Contractor™ and Rental magazines.
“Our news coverage goals for this mega-show were divided equally between informing those attending the show ‒ so they didn’t miss what they couldn’t get to in person ‒ and those who stayed home,” commented Kris Flitcroft, executive vice president.
That dual-focus coverage contributed to a major jump in pageviews on the network’s two websites ‒ ForConstructionPros.com and OEMOffHighway.com ‒ which experienced a 26% and 25% increase, respectively, the week of the show.
Three consecutive days of live, at-show news broadcasts, produced from the anchor desk in the Cygnus booth, took center stage in the convention hall. Roger Mann, Cygnus’s chief correspondent, conducted 72 live interviews with construction executives from around the globe. The live broadcasts were carried on the network’s two microsites, along with 131 additional videos created at the show by the Cygnus editorial team.
Here’s a snapshot of the news coverage and results by the Cygnus Construction Network:
