The 2005 International Construction and Utility Equipment Exposition (ICUEE) attracted more than 16,400 industry professionals –– its highest recorded attendance in show history –– on Sept. 27 to 29 at the Kentucky Fair and Exposition Center in Louisville, KY.
Known as the Demo Expo, the show featured more than 800 exhibitors and more than 1.113 million sq. ft. of exhibit space, where attendees could operate equipment in demonstrations simulating real-life working conditions.
An extensive education program complemented displays of the latest equipment technology and product innovations.
“Attendees came to see what’s new and to test, compare and buy the equipment, products and services they need to enhance work site performance and productivity,” said ICUEE Show Manager Nicole Hallada.
ICUEE showgoers came from all industry segments –– with more than 5 percent international visitors representing more than 40 countries –– and were provided more than triple the amount of education offered at the last show, and included the co-location of a special Underground Construction Technology (UCT) educational program. Industry experts examined the latest technological trends and operational issues affecting the utility and construction industry.
“We received very positive feedback from attendees on the value of these sessions, which they said was definitely worth their time,” said Hallada.
ICUEE is owned and produced by the Association of Equipment Manufacturers.
