Utility professionals are some of the unsung heroes in our local communities, especially during disaster relief, ensuring delivery of electricity, gas, clean water and other vital services. ICUEE 2015 will recognize the importance of utility professionals and salute our military heroes with a benefit auction and other events at Heroes Day on October 1. ICUEE 2015 takes place September 29-October 1 in Louisville, Kentucky USA (Kentucky Exposition Center).

The Heroes Day auction will benefit military veteran job placement services with 100 percent of the proceeds going to The Call of DutyTM Endowment.

Heroes Day will also feature Lunch on Us and a Toast to Our Heroes bourbon tasting. The show’s new Demo Derby game will conclude with a grand finale. Attendees will also be able to take advantage of hotel discounts.

“Attendees know they’ll find the newest products and the latest education at ICUEE, and they always cite industry networking as a key show benefit. We’re taking that to the next level on October 1 by recognizing the impact our industry has on local communities and supporting military veterans with a not-to-be-missed benefit auction,” said Sara Truesdale Mooney, ICUEE show director.

ICUEE, the International Construction and Utility Equipment Exposition, is also known as The Demo Expo and is the largest event for the utility industry, owned and produced by the Association of Equipment Manufacturers (AEM). The show brings together industry professionals to gain comprehensive insights into the latest technologies, innovations and trends affecting their industry.
