All indoor and outdoor exhibit space for ICPI-NCMA’s Hardscape North America and the Outdoor Power Equipment Institute’s co-located Equip Exposition, October 18-21 at the Kentucky Exposition Center in Louisville, is sold out. With upward of 1,000 exhibits combined, the events draw tens of thousands of hardscape or landscape practitioners and other outdoor setting stakeholders—all free to “test before they invest” in tools, power units and technology.
“This is a first: Every inch of exhibit space inside the KEC and outside in the newly expanded 30-acre Outdoor Demo Yard has been reserved,” says Outdoor Power Equipment Institute CEO Kris Kiser. “It’s our industry’s ‘family reunion,’ complete with the food and fireworks, plus digging, sawing, and test-driving on a grand scale. It’s a great year to come to Louisville.”
“With opportunities for shopping the newest products, learning installation techniques and business-building tips, attendees can customize their experience to get the best value for their investment,” adds recently retired Interlocking Concrete Pavement Institute Executive Director Charles McGrath. “We hear from attendees every year that they returned home armed with the knowledge and tools to advance their businesses.” — www.hardscapena.com; www.equipexposition.com
