ON THE MARK Feather in Our Cap This may come as a surprise to you, but . . . ConExpo‐Con/Agg is right around the corner! It seems like just yesterday we were walking 25 miles a day all over the Las Vegas Convention Center, but in March 2014, we will be doing it all again. In this issue, we begin our first "ConExpo‐Con/Agg Countdown" column, which will detail all of the updates and show news available in the run‐up to the big event. We are doubly pleased to announce that The Association of Equipment Manufacturers (AEM) has awarded Rock Products its exclusive "Top Level VIP" supporting publication status for ConExpo‐Con/Agg 2014. This designation is only given to publications that are able to provide the wide audience and extensive targeted content that is critical to the success of the show. Our parent company Mining Media International, in addition to Rock Products, also publishes Cement Americas, Concrete Products, Quarry Equipment Marketplace, C&D World, Coal Age, Engineering & Mining Journal, Equipo Minero and other industry leading publications, as well as conferences such as Haulage and Loading, Longwall, Frac Sand Insider Conference and Automation + Energy Conference. We are proud that our extended family of mining and construction‐ materials magazines qualify us for Top Level VIP status. Not all aggre‐ gates industry publications qualified for this exclusive level of support. We are able to provide the show with a vital platform for promotion, which in turn gives greater visibility to the exhibitors that drive the show's success. You'll be hearing more about that in the months ahead. There is more good news to report as well. Editorial Office 11555 Central Parkway, Suite 401 Jacksonville, Florida 32224 U.S.A.
