ConExpo Management Offers Free Tech Talk About Telematics on April 22

April 10, 2021 – ConExpo-Con/Agg management will offer a free Live Tech Talk session, Telematics: Diagnostics, Operational Efficiency & Training at 1:30 p.m. CDT/11:30 a.m. PDT April 22.

The event will give an inside look at the operations centers of several contractors and companies who take advantage of telematics and equipment data to support their field and business operations.

Registration for the event is open now. 

“The technology behind equipment telematics isn’t new, but it’s developing at an accelerated rate,” said Megan Tanel, senior vice president, CE & Utility Sector, at the Association of Equipment Manufacturers. “This Tech Talk will help companies understand how to gain valuable insights and to see what’s next from telematics data.”


Hosted by Aaron Witt of BuildWitt, the tech talk will help participants gain insight into how their peers use data to increase efficiency and reduce costs related to idle time.

They will also see how companies are using telematics to coach employees about improving productivity and job site safety. Witt’s curiosity about this topic comes from his love of dirt and from BuildWitt's mission of "making the Dirt World a better place.”

The largest construction trade show in North America, ConExpo-Con/Agg offers Tech Talks so contractors can learn firsthand from equipment industry experts. The talks are offered both live and on-demand.

“We know your business is unique which is why we are committed to providing a suite of telematics tools and resources to fit every customer's business,” said Fred Rio, Caterpillar worldwide product manager - construction digital & technology. “By transforming data into insights and placing it into the palm of your hands we empower you to make the best business decisions.”

The free event is made possible by Caterpillar.  

This event is the second in a three-part series, following February’s successful Tech Talk that focused on machine control at the Las Vegas Convention Center’s new People Mover project, which described how technology was used to complete the project safely and with minimal disruption. The People Mover project will carry CONEXPO-CON/AGG & IFPE attendees around the 2023 show.
