2024 Equip Expo enhances offerings

This year’s event in Louisville, Kentucky, will include a welcome reception at Churchill Downs, keynote speaker Kevin O’Connor and a concert by Trace Adkins.

The 2024 Equip Exposition, owned and managed by the Outdoor Power Equipment Institute, Louisville, Kentucky, will bring several new offerings to the 2024 event. 

The event will feature new exhibitor spaces, entertainment and networking opportunities.  

“We’ve listened to our attendees, and are adding new experiences to give them more of what they want: Being with their peers, talking about business struggles and getting real answers,” says Kris Kiser, president and CEO of the OPEI. “There’s no other place where landscapers, equipment manufacturers and dealers can come together to talk to each other, peer to peer, in such a supportive environment. Whether you need help with people, products or processes, the answers to your questions are at Expo.” 

Experiences that the show will offer in 2024 include the following:  

  • a Tuesday evening Welcome Reception at Churchill Downs, marking the 150th anniversary of the Kentucky Derby, where attendees can see the recent upgrades to the racetrack. Sponsored by Caterpillar. 
  • Kevin O’Connor from This Old House as keynote speaker Wednesday morning. Sponsored by Kress. 
  • a special happy hour in Freedom Hall at the Kentucky Exposition Center  starting just after the show closes on Wednesday. House band, the Crashers, will perform at the event.  
  • a Thursday evening arena concert at the KFC Yum! Center in downtown Louisville featuring multi-platinum entertainer and musician, Trace Adkins, sponsored by SENIX.  
  • expanded Spanish-language education focused on helping crew leaders become better managers.  
  • the return of the very successful and well-attended Women’s Reception on Thursday evening, sponsored by SiteOne and Belgard. 
  • more opportunities to connect in-person with social media influencers at events like the Morning Show at Expo, sponsored by Kohler, and ENERGIZE. 
  • improved logistics, including a shuttle bus drop-off at the West Wing which will improve parking lot congestion. 

The 2023 Equip Exposition was a record-setting show with more than 27,000 attendees participating. 

Tickets for the 2024 show are $25 until April 1.
