By Lindsey Anderson10 October 2011
ICUEE, held Oct. 4-6 in Louisville, KY, brought in 16,600 registered attendees making it the second largest show in its history, organizers announced on the closing day of the show. More than 800 exhibitors took more than 1.1 million net square feet for product displays and hands-on equipment demonstrations.
"We're very pleased and gratified by industry support of the show with these strong numbers during a still-recovering economy. Despite some uncertain market conditions, our industry is looking ahead to be ready for future business," said show director Melissa Magestro. "ICUEE was the place to be for industry professionals seeking the equipment and technologies they need to succeed in the changing marketplace."
Registrants came from all 50 states, all 10 Canadian provinces and more than 40 other countries worldwide.
ICUEE promoted jobsite safety with its first-ever Lift Safety Zone where the National Commission for the Certification of Crane Operators (NCCCO) and the International Powered Access Federation (IPAF) held demonstrations and on-site testing.
