Organizers of The Utility Expo say the show now has 7% more exhibition space than the previous show, which took place in 2019. “We exceeded 1.4 million square feet of space for the first time in the show’s history, with 1.2 million of it outdoors, says John Rossum. , exhibition director at The Utility Expo.” And he’s still growing up. More exhibitors are coming daily as we bring the utility industry together in Louisville. New features on the show include the job site, which The Utility Expo says is the first hands-on demonstration of the underground facilities from start to finish. “Watching videos and reading articles about these operations is one thing,” says Mike Barillac, president and owner of Planet Underground, which produces the job site. Another thing is to see the work in front of you in a way that you can ask questions and see for yourself what the equipment and technology can do for your career and business. Roseum urges contractors to register and reserve their hotel rooms for the show from September 28-30, which will be held at the Kentucky Exhibition Center in Louisville, Kentucky. “There is still hotel space, but it is filling up quickly,” he says. Formerly known as ICUEE, the Utility Fair is produced by the Equipment Manufacturers Association.
