Attendees at GIE+EXPO 2019 will now benefit from free parking at the Kentucky Exposition Center (KEC). Show organizers have arranged free parking for participants all three days of show, October 16-18, 2019, at the Kentucky Exposition Center in Louisville.


“We recognize that GIE+EXPO is an investment in each attendee’s business, and we strive to make it as affordable as possible,” says Kris Kiser, managing partner of GIE+EXPO and Outdoor Power Equipment Institute President. “More importantly, the free parking will allow easy access for all attendees and exhibitors. A major challenge for any large event at a venue like KEC is payment processing at gates. Now at GIE+EXPO, there’s no more waiting at the gate, which means more time on the show floor.”
