The Utility Expo offers a unique attendee experience

This was my first year to attend The Utility Expo. I was amazed at all the equipment and vendors. I have been to TechAdvantage several times as well as other expos. The Utility Expo was completely different. It was truly a site to see. I will be sure to attend from now on, especially since this is in my backyard.

What's it Like At The Utility Expo?

Things are a little different at The Utility Expo. There’s more time to explore in-depth, more time to talk, and more time for your team to learn. In short? It’s made to serve the people who keep the light on and the water flowing.


Don’t just watch a demo -- you and your operators can actually try and compare the equipment you’re thinking of buying.


The manufacturers are here to answer questions, explore possibilities, and talk to you about your utility needs.


Go at your own pace. You can take your time to find the equipment you need and compare manufacturers.


We have Field Classrooms from experts in utilities, offering hands-on training and actionable advice for growth.
