2019 ICUEE Offers New Focus on Technology, Expands Education

August 14, 2019 – ICUEE 2019, the largest-ever utility construction industry event, will feature a new focus on technology exhibitors and will offer more education opportunities.

ICUEE will be held Oct. 1-3 at the Kentucky Exposition Center in Louisville, Kentucky. This year’s event will cover more than 30 acres of the industry’s latest technology and equipment, hands-on equipment test drives, and interactive product demonstrations — with more than 240 product categories and more than 200 new exhibitors joining longtime favorites.

New and Expanded Education

Take advantage of new and expanded learning opportunities, from education on the show floor to interactive crisis-simulation planning:

  • Disaster-simulation labs with Desi Matel-Anderson, FEMA’s first and former chief innovation officer
  • Field classrooms where instructors are hands-on with equipment on the show floor
  • Eat and Learn workshops with Tuesday lunch and Wednesday breakfast and lunch

More Food Options and Expanded Exhibit Pavilions

Adding to the options at the show is a new Food Court Patio area, featuring Louisville’s most iconic food trucks, with plenty of seating. The area will be located between the Above Ground Demo Lot (Area L) and the Lift & Haul Demo Lot (Area N).

A new Emerging Technologies Pavilion joins the expanded Safety and Fleet Management exhibit pavilions on the indoor show floor. These pavilions help group specific types of exhibitors to make it even easier to spot what’s new.
