Visitors at this year’s Equip Exposition on October 16-18 will find expanded opportunities and offerings in the west wing at the Kentucky Exposition Center (KEC).

“Now that Equip shuttles will drop off and pick up attendees at the West Wing, we’ve added a commuter lounge, food trucks and seating and registration,” said Kris Kiser, president and CEO of the Outdoor Power Equipment Institute, which owns Equip Exposition. “Also, with many of the new training and certification classrooms as well as the New Product Showcase located there, we expect the west wing to be a major hub of activity.”

Some experiences attendees will find in the west wing at Equip Expo 2024 include:

  • A new Classroom and Certification Center.
  • The annual dog adoption event, Mutt Madness on Thursday, October 17 in the new Mulligan’s Garden Park.
  • New infinity pool training.
  • The Drone Zone.
  • The New Product Showcase.
  • The Equip Golf Experience sponsored by TD Retail Card Services.
  • Expanded food offerings and seating.

“The west wing is geared toward landscapers and contractors so they can experience where the industry is going next,” sad Kiser. “And get valuable training and certifications that will help expand their businesses when they get home.”

The Classroom and Certification Center will offer classes covering scaling your business, developing crew leaders into better managers, pesticide management and application, tree and shrub pruning and plant health and more. Education at Equip also includes employee recruitment and retention, irrigation repair, installation and design, outdoor lighting design and installation, outdoor pool design, maintenance and installation, working with private equity to expand or sell your business, understanding key financial metrics to boost profitability and more.

The Equip Golf Experience will enable attendees to get together while having some fun. The indoor food trucks and seating area will allow for meetups while fueling up to traverse the one million square feet of exhibit space at the industry’s leading trade show and its 30-acre Outdoor Demo Yard. And there even will be an opportunity to give a rescue dog a forever home at Mulligan’s Mutt Madness, now located in the West Wing.

A special spring promotional price of $25 offers those interested in attending the event an opportunity to register for the 2024 Equip Exposition at a discount. This pricing ends on May 31.
