Online Exhibitor Demo Schedule, planning tools help attendees maximize time onsite
Advance registrations for ICUEE 2013 continue to outpace the last two events as the show nears opening day about a month away. Utility and contractor professionals attending ICUEE can expect to experience one of the largest and most comprehensive shows in ICUEE history.
In addition to 25 acres of exhibits of the newest products and technologies, the show will feature jobsite safety demonstrations in addition to its numerous working-equipment demos and a new indoor “demo stage.”
Attendees will also find a more diverse and targeted education schedule than ever before, and several industry certification programs and exams will be offered.
ICUEE 2013 will be held October 1-3, 2013 at the Kentucky Exposition Center in Louisville, Kentucky.
“Utilities and contractors come to ICUEE to see the latest in equipment and products that can improve efficiency and profitability; hands-on demos help attendees better evaluate and compare product capabilities across multiple brands,” stated Sara Truesdale Mooney, ICUEE show director.
“They are also looking to improve their operational proficiency and jobsite safety; ICUEE’s educational and safety-related opportunities help attendees learn about best practices and improve their safety awareness and skills,” Mooney said.
Mooney noted that continued robust education ticket sales underscored the relevancy of topics to industry professionals. Leading industry groups are co-locating education programs and events at the show that focus on specific industry sectors, adding to the information exchange and networking.
Attendees can use the show’s convenient online Exhibitor Demo Schedule to preview what demos they want to check out onsite. (They can use additional show planning tools online to compile a personalized schedule that also includes exhibit booths and education sessions of interest.)
