“From every perspective, this year’s Utility Expo surpassed all expectations, offering an abundance of sights and experiences for attendees,” said show director John Rozum.
The exposition also featured educational sessions and workshops aimed at equipping attendees with training and certifications to elevate their skillsets and career prospects.
“Our education offerings at the show range from peer-to-peer demos to professional instruction to free drop-in sessions,” said Rozum. “Whether you prefer to learn in the classroom or in the driver’s seat, The Utility Expo has you covered.”
“By all measures, this was an outstanding Utility Expo with more to see and experience than ever before,” said Jim Glazer, The Utility Expo show chair, and president of Elliott Equipment Company. “The Utility Expo is always a tremendous opportunity to make lasting industry connections and take advantage of education that helps participants continue to grow and stay competitive.
