This special arena concert acknowledges the many significant friends and partners of Equip Expo that have welcomed the trade show to Louisville for 40 years and promises to be a great time for Equip Exposition attendees.

The entire industry comes to Expo, and now everyone who participates can come to the party. It’s on us.”

Registered attendees and exhibitors for Equip Exposition may attend all three nights of entertainment for free with their registration badges serving as tickets.

In addition to the concert at the KFC YUM! Center, entertainment during the 2023 three-day event include: House band, The Crashers with a jamming Welcome Party at the downtown Kentucky International Convention Center on Tuesday night, October 17. Food and hors d’oeuvres will be provided and there will be a cash bar for drinks. A free Fourth Street Live! Concert by the Juicebox Heroes starting at 8 p.m. on Wednesday, October 18.
