Utility Expo Opens in Louisville

The Utility Expo, formerly known as the International Construction & Utility Equipment Exposition, kicks off Tuesday, Sept. 28 at the Kentucky Exposition Center in Louisville.

Covering more than 30 acres, the three-day show is the largest event for utility professionals and construction contractors to glimpse the latest industry technologies, innovations, and trends.

The show announced some guidelines to protect against COVID. Masks will not be required for vaccinated show participants, and social distancing requirements have been removed. Hand sanitizer will be available throughout the show. The aisles in the indoor spaces will be wider than in previous years.  The Utility Expo website said organizers will “implement new guidelines and protocols as required at the time of the show.”  

A number of educational sessions are planned, including field classrooms on the show floor. The interactive, walking classrooms are 90-minute sessions led by industry experts. Attendees can choose from 28 sessions on topics such as fleet management, fleet accessories, safety, vegetation management, and aerial devices.

Attendees can also purchase on-demand materials, choosing from more than 60 sessions that they can access starting Oct. 1 and are available for a year. Topics include safety, business best practices, pipeline solutions, equipment technology, workforce development, underground solutions, drones, DOT updates, and aerial solutions.

A water pavilion education program organized by Storm Water Solutions and Water & Wastes Digest includes live demonstrations led by industry experts.
