From March 10 to March 14, OADC attended the 2020 Con-Expo in Las Vegas, Nevada. CONEXPO-CON/AGG is a trade show representing asphalt, aggregates, concrete, earthmoving, lifting, mining, utilities and more.

At the conference, OADC Member Priestly Demolition led a presentation called "Salvaging the Industry". The construction industry is constantly evolving, and for Ryan Priestly, President of Priestly Demolition Inc., that means positive change for innovation and sustainability. Scott Colclough, CEO of Pushysix, interviewed Ryan about where the industry is going and how it will create positive change for communities by recycling materials salvaged on the jobsite.

OADC was honoured to represent Ontario's demolition and abatement industry at North America's largest construction trade show.
