Those in attendance were professionals involved with construction, design, public works or infrastructure construction and maintenance, and trade professionals and service professionals providing industry support.

In addition to the expo itself there were more than 50 seminars and meetings to attend. Many of the seminars offered continuing education credit. Among the topics covered during the seminars and presentations were Soil Bioengineering Techniques, West Virginia Zoning Law Updates, West Virginia Infrastructure and Jobs Development, Financial Management Strategies and Environmental Regulatory Changes.
