    Well Conexpo is rolling around again in March 2023 so let's start the "official" HEF Conex thread.

    Wife and I plan on attended and already have our rooms reserved at MGM. We did not attend the 2020 show due to obvious reasons and looking forward to this show.

    I really enjoy the shows and the couple of HEF meet ups over the years.

    Who else is going?

    I really in the worst way want to go not sure I'll make it happen tho. I wish I would have got more time in 2020 to see it all but my knee had dirtbike issues and we wound up leaving a day early. Due to the show shutting down early.

    I'm planning to go for my first time, I need to book my lodging and stuff yet. I began working out all the details then got busy and it keeps getting pushed aside.

    Wife and I decided not to go in 2020 which turned out to be a wise choice not because of the virus but the show shutting down early and the possibility of being stuck 1.8K miles away from home.

    Hope you can make it.:)

    My suggestion would be to go ahead and book your rooms as they will fill up quick.

    Definitely never ended up doing that. I kept checking on hotels, flights, etc, even had another friend look and I couldn't seem to find anything that wasn't sketchy or way off the main strip without spending far more money then it was worth to me. I think it would be a cool show to see but I couldn't see spending a few thousand on it this go around.
