It usually rains at GIE+EXPO in Louisville, Ky. Sometimes it snows. But that’s cool. It allows attendees to operate earth-moving construction and landscape equipment in the mud, which is not only fun but an effective testing ground for actual jobsites. Last week, Oct. 19-21, GIE+EXPO hosted thousands of contractors, dealers, manufacturers, associations and students at the Kentucky Exposition Center, exploring both dry indoor booths and the wet expansive outdoor area (while attending seminars on site and events around town). Despite a few wicked storms, the show looked like a success, and here are some photos to prove it.
