ICUEE Attendance Soars

The International Construction & Utility Equipment Exposition (ICUEE) welcomed a record number of attendees last month. The show was held Oct. 16-18 in Louisville, Ky. at the Kentucky Fair & Exposition Center.

More than 17,000 industry professionals and 850-plus exhibitors filled over a million square feet of exhibit space. This biennial tradeshow, owned and produced by the Association of Equipment Manufacturers, is also called The Demo Show - because attendees can operate the equipment themselves and explore new products and innovations in the industry. While rain delayed the first opportunities for hands-on demos, the weather soon cleared and demos were back on track.

Mark Harbaugh, vice president of Ditch Witch Midwest in Carol Stream, Ill. attended the show and said the crowd activity was good. Harbaugh said Ditch Witch always has a nice presence at the show and this year the company introduced the new Zahn, a compact piece of equipment for the landscape rental industry.

"The compact utility equipment side has started to take off," Harbaugh said. "People are starting to see more and more from the industry and what they can really do."
