Why Exhibit?

The Utility Expo is the #1 utility and construction trade show in North America, bringing together more than 21,000 industry professionals, and 900+ industry-leading manufacturers over 1.5 million square feet of exhibit space. As one of the largest trade shows in the U.S., The Utility Expo’s popularity is attributed to equipment test drives and interactive product demonstrations. It will return to the Kentucky Exposition Center October 7-9, 2025.
