ICUEE 2019ICUEE 2019, the International Construction and Utility Equipment Exposition, saw record numbers of utility and construction professionals converge on the Kentucky Exposition Center in Louisville last week.

The show is owned and produced by AEM, and registered attendance topped 19,000, from the United States, Canada and more than 65 countries worldwide.

“We shattered our attendance record on Tuesday,” said AEM’s John Rozum, ICUEE 2019 show director. “Our 70 registration kiosks were printing 25 badges per minute between 8 and 10 a.m., so we knew the temperature wasn’t the only thing running hot that day and breaking records.”

ICUEE 2019 included more than 1,000 exhibitors showcasing the latest products and solutions for the utility construction industry. Exhibitors covered a record 1.34 million square feet, or more than 30 acres. Exhibits included the show’s signature hands-on equipment test drives and interactive product demonstrations.

“By all measures, this was an outstanding ICUEE with more to see and experience than ever before, and it was gratifying to see such positive energy among attendees and exhibitors,” said Rick Johnson, ICUEE 2019 show chair and CEO Emeritus of Charles Machine Works. “ICUEE is always such a tremendous opportunity to make lasting industry connections that help participants continue to grow and stay competitive.”

Mark your calendars… The next ICUEE will be held Sept. 28-30, 2021, returning to Louisville and the Kentucky Exposition Center.
