The 2013 ICUEE, The Demo Expo, was by all measures a success and one of the largest and most comprehensive ever, with registered attendance of more than 17,500, surpassing the last show, held in 2011.
The 2013 ICUEE — International Construction and Utility Equipment Exposition ran October 1 to 3 at the Kentucky Exposition Center in Louisville, Ky.
There was plenty of enthusiasm and a positive buzz throughout ICUEE 2013. Attendees connected with exhibitors to do business and connected with industry experts in more than 90 education sessions to gain a clearer understanding of industry issues and challenges.
“We hope the great turnout and participation at this year’s ICUEE points to more sustainable and broader industry growth. Attendees said ICUEE prepares them for what lies ahead and that the show is where they go to find new products and solutions, make buying decisions, and learn the latest industry best practices,” said Sara Truesdale Mooney, ICUEE show director.
The final registration count made the 2013 show the second highest attended in ICUEE history; international attendance also was second-highest. Participants came from all 50 states, all 10 Canadian provinces and 50 other countries worldwide.
ICUEE 2013 had a record 862 exhibitors, and the show floor hit a record 1.17 million net sq. ft., including co-located H20-XPO and iP Utility Safety Conference & Expo. The indoor and outdoor exhibits offered utilities and utility contractors the ultimate in comparison shopping for new products and equipment, with the hands-on product demonstrations that are a hallmark of ICUEE.
