LOUISVILLE, Ky. — The International Construction & Utility Equipment Exposition (ICUEE) returns to the Kentucky Exposition Center (KEC) Oct. 1-3 and is estimated to generate just under $15 million in economic impact for Louisville. The biannual exhibition ranked as the no. 5 trade show in 2017 according to the Trade Show News Network.
ICUEE is the premier event for utility professionals and construction contractors, providing insight into the latest innovations and trends affecting their industries. More than 18,000 attendees are expected to explore 28 acres of equipment, products and technologies.
The ICUEE and KEC partnership began in the 1980s when the Association of Equipment Manufacturers required a facility with indoor and outdoor exhibit space capable of handling demos and test drives for cranes, earth-movers and heavy-duty trucks. KEC was – and continues to be – uniquely qualified to deliver whatever it takes to make ICUEE a success.
Known as the “Demo Expo”, ICUEE offers multiple hands-on learning opportunities, both inside and outside the Kentucky Exposition Center.
- Machinery is exhibited in job-like conditions so attendees can experience equipment “in the field” – at ground level, underground or overhead.
- A two-mile test drive zone allows attendees to learn about the latest technology in on-road equipment.
- A demo stage and field classrooms provide additional demo and learning opportunities.
- The new UTV Test Track will give attendees an opportunity to compare utility test vehicles from some of the top manufacturers in the country.
ICUEE provides services such as electric, telecommunications/cable, natural gas, water, wastewater services, as well as contractors providing utilities with infrastructure engineering and construction services. The event is closed to the public. For more information, visit www.icuee.com.
