Despite concerns surrounding the novel coronavirus pandemic, ConExpo 2020 was the construction industry’s most successful show ever. Throughout the week, Siglalarm connected with leaders in the industry, closed new deals, and unveiled our newest innovations.
ConExpo 2020 became the highest attended event yet, with over 130,000 registered for attendance. With so many attending, Sigalarm continued our commitment to saving lives. We introduced and demoed our world-leading power line warning technology to countless new potential partners.
“When I leave ConExpo, I’m always amazed at the amount of people and equipment it takes to run our everyday lives,” said Ashley Pertler, Sigalarm’s Operations Manager. “There is a global workforce building your future, and they are all represented at this show.”
With great success at ConExpo 2020, we’re already making plans to attend the conference again in 2023.
Connecting with distributors
Despite some skepticism around attendance, Sigalarm’s booth in New Festival Hall had steady traffic throughout the week. We made connections with several new companies which could use Sigalarm’s technology.
Sigalarm closed a new partnership with Scale and Control Inc., a product solutions company. In addition, we began negotiations with several potential partners.
“It was a treat to hear how potential customers were discussing strategies to incorporate our products into their culture,” Pertler said. “We feel like those who were in attendance were serious about making business connections making this one of our most successful trade shows yet.”
We also connected with some of our current distributors who attended ConExpo 2020 to discuss future plans and products. These included Hydraulic Sales in Miami, Brandt Companies, and Bay Shore Systems in Idaho, amongst others.
Sigalarm Products at ConExpo 2020
Sigalarm introduced several of our new innovations at ConExpo, including our safety monitoring mobile app. At our booth in New Festival Hall, we showcased our Gen 5 Sigalarm system and its new features. Of course, our new wireless proximity alarm and monitoring application will continue to keep safety at the forefront.
“We received a lot of good feedback from customers who were excited about new Deutsch connectors and weather resistant features of the Gen 5,” Pertler said.
Sigalarm Mobile Monitoring app
Our monitoring app, which puts safety at the fingertips of its users, was introduced to customers as well. The app helps team members monitor and manage alarm notifications from job sites. Users can track warnings and keep records of alarm notifications in the app. Lastly, it will allow supervisors and team leaders to access their Sigalarm training course and earn their certification. The app can be downloaded on the Apple App Store and Google Play Store.
Sigalarm Training Course
Along with our app, we also introduced our Sigalarm training course at ConExpo. Our wireless proximity alarm training course teaches team members how to use Sigalarms to ensure team safety. Furthermore, the course will walk through how to operate, adjust setpoints and parameters, and troubleshoot Sigalarm monitoring systems.
In addition to the desktop version of the course, it can be completed by team members in the mobile app as well. Once the course is complete, users will receive a certificate to authorize them to operate Sigalarms.
Besides our booth, several other companies were featuring Sigalarm’s line of products. Scale and Control Inc. displayed Gen 4 at its booth. Brandt Companies showed the Gen 4 installed on a pipe layer. In addition, Bay Shore Systems showcased the Legacy installed on their customers’ drill rigs. Finally, our Sigalarms were displayed by Midwest Drilled Foundations & Engineering, Inc., and Scott Powerline & Utility Equipment.

A Safer Future in Construction
Sigalarm was one of many innovators in construction safety at the event. With so many new revolutionary technologies on display, we were proud to be one of the presenters from around the globe. Moreover, ConExpo showed us just how many companies are prioritizing saving lives at their construction sites. Countless AEM (Association of Equipment Manufacturers) members proudly displayed, “I Make America” logos throughout the show.
“It makes me proud to be a part of the vital supply chain that keeps this country working, safely!” Pertler said.
At Sigalarm, we’re proud to supply a wide array of power line warning products to keep construction safe, including our new monitoring app. These include three warning devices and Hirtzer insulated links.
