Registration is now open for GIE+EXPO 2018, and with the combination of expanded Wednesday hours, dynamic education and many new exhibitors, it’s shaping up to be even bigger than the last three record-setting years. The annual trade show is set for October 17-19 at the Kentucky Exposition Center in Louisville and online registration is available at www.gie-expo.com. Early bird registration is $15 through Sept. 6.
According to Kris Kiser, President and CEO of the Outdoor Power Equipment Institute (OPEI), exhibit space sales are already running ahead of this time last year, and organizers anticipate topping 2017’s record-breaking numbers. Attendees can expect to see more new products than ever as the number of new exhibitors at GIE+EXPO increases each year. In addition, the outdoor demo area, which offers the opportunity to test new products from both shows, is expected to meet or exceed last year’s 20 acre area.
“This year’s show is a must-attend event for industry members who are looking to move their businesses to the next level,” said Kiser. “With more trade show hours for dealers on Wednesday and an incredible keynote on the lineup, GIE+EXPO continues to be extremely valuable business investment for exhibitors and attendees alike.”
