Outdoor equipment demonstrations attracted large crowds to National Pavement Expo (NPE), held January 8-11 at the Greater Fort Lauderdale Convention Center in Fort Lauderdale, FL. The latest paving & pavement maintenance equipment, demonstrated by 16 of NPE’s exhibitors, included milling, paving, cracksealing, infrared repair, sealcoating, sweeping, striping and more. Attendees also experienced four days of top-quality education, as well as a packed exhibit hall with more than 118 exhibiting companies.
“Exhibitors expressed that this show has resulted in direct sales of equipment, products and services. They were pleased with the new venue, new attendee draw and addition of outdoor demonstrations.” Explained Amy Schwandt, show manager and publisher of the expo’s sponsoring trade magazines, Pavement Maintenance & Reconstruction™ and Asphalt Contractor™. “Over 70% of the trade show floor space for next year was booked immediately on-site. We are looking forward to capitalizing on this momentum as we plan for next year in Nashville at the new Music City Center.”
“The response to this year’s conference sessions and outdoor equipment demonstrations was really positive,” commented Allan Heydorn, conference manager and editor of Pavement Maintenance & Reconstruction. “Exhibitors appreciated the opportunity to showcase their equipment and attendees benefited from actually seeing it in action.”
2015 TO BE HELD IN NASHVILLE
Exhibitors have already committed to 70% of the expo space for NPE 2015, which is scheduled for January 28-31 in Nashville, Tennessee. Many exhibitors expressed their excitement about going back to Nashville in 2015. “Nashville has a proven track record of the largest attendees, lead generation, quality facilities, easy travel, downtime fun and all around success,” said exhibitor Rick Stone of Cimline.
NPE 2015 will be held in the brand new Music City Center, a state-of-the-art facility located in the heart of Nashville, just steps away from great accommodations, entertainment, and restaurants.
Attendees are looking forward to returning to Nashville because of its convenient location, affordability and great food and entertainment.
