ICUEE 2013 Announces New Co-Located Events

ICUEE 2013 organizers have announced new co-located events which will broaden the scope of industry education available to attendees during the show.

The 2013 ICUEE-The Demo Expo announces new co-located events from AEMP and NASTT which will broaden the scope of industry education available for attendees to enhance their job performance and strengthen their company’s bottom line.

Association of Equipment Management Professionals (AEMP) is co-locating its popular annual Asset Management Symposium, and North American Society for Trenchless Technology (NASTT) is co-locating its highly-regarded Cured-in-Place Pipe Good Practices course.

AEMP’s Asset Management Symposium is one of the organization’s premier events focused on the latest industry issues affecting asset management professionals, presented by seasoned industry professionals. Topic areas can include equipment finance, telematics, fleet metrics and Tier 4 engine emissions. Professional certification courses are also held, and the event includes plenty of networking opportunities.

NASTT’s well-known “Good Practices courses” offer trenchless professionals, both experienced and new to the field, an in-depth, high-quality learning experience. Topic areas can include horizontal directional drilling, pipe bursting, cured-in-place pipe, laterals and new installation methods such as auger boring, pipe ramming, pipe jacking and the pilot tube method.

Returning to ICUEE is the H2O-XPO show of the National Rural Water Association (NRWA), with an extensive program of water and wastewater education. The iP Safety Conference and Expo from Incident Prevention magazine returns with an expanded education agenda for safety, training and operations professionals. And UCT-Underground Construction Technology is again a major contributor to ICUEE education programming.

“Education is critical for industry professionals who want to operate profitably in today’s economic environment,” states Mark Core, ICUEE chair and vice president marketing and lifecycle management for Vermeer Corporation. “ICUEE offers targeted information presented by industry experts in a format that allows attendees to take advantage of the education they need while still having ample time on the show floor.”

ICUEE, the International Construction and Utility Equipment Exposition, will be held October 1 to 3, 2013 at the Kentucky Exposition Center in Louisville, KY.

“The AEMP symposium is a must-attend event for industry professionals seeking to professionally manage their fleets by learning best practices competencies of the ‘hot’ asset management issues that are impacting their bottom line,” states Stan Orr, CAE, AEMP president and chief strategy officer.

”Trenchless technologies are continually evolving and these specialized NASTT professional-development courses are ideal for attendees who want to increase their knowledge and hone their skills in this growing industry segment,” states Michael Willmets, NASTT executive director.

ICUEE is held every two years and covers more than one million net square feet of exhibits of the latest equipment, technologies, products and services for the utility/construction industry. It is known for its extensive hands-on equipment demonstrations in job-like conditions.

ICUEE education covers underground, above ground and overhead applications. The show serves an audience of utility professionals and utility construction contractors in the electric, telecommunications, cable, sewer/water, and natural gas sectors.

More education details will be provided as the show planning cycle progresses.
