More than 25,000 attend Equip Exposition, setting new record for landscaping show
A new attendance record was set Oct. 19-21 at the renamed Equip Exposition in Louisville, KY.
Formerly known as GIE+EXPO, the event attracted more than 25,000 attendees and registrants. All indoor and outdoor exhibit space was sold out for both Equip Exposition and Hardscape North America, which co-locates with Equip Expo. The event is North America’s largest trade show and conference for the professional landscaping industry.
“The trade show remains the industry’s family reunion,” Kris Kiser, orresident and CEO of the Equip Exposition and the Outdoor Power Equipment Institute (OPEI), which owns the trade show, said. “This year we shook up the programming a bit and introduced lots of new idea.”
Expo attendees hailed from all 50 US states and 49 countries, including Canada, with the furthest traveling attendees coming from Guam, New Zealand and Australia.
Next year’s show, which returns to the Kentucky Exposition Center, will be held Oct. 18-20
