The Utility Expo 2021
Thank you to everyone who came and said Hi at The Utility Expo! As our 3rd time attending, and our first Trade Show since Covid, we were excited to see people out and about. We had the opportunity to meet new industry folks and to continue to spread our brand awareness.
The market continues to expand and we got to see new companies trying to break into the market, established companies featuring new products and services, as well as an array of tasty morsels for the hungry patrons (here's looking at you fried catfish).
The mornings were filled with folks flying in from all different parts of the country, eager to examine the goods on display. Outdoors there were fleets of Digger Derricks, bucket trucks, trailers, utility trucks, and every type of service vehicle you could imagine. Inside there were booths which displayed everything from industrial sunscreen for linemen to commercial drills with bits which took 3 of us to wrap our arms around! Several companies were also advertising services such as land purveyors and part time drivers. Gladiator certainly stood out as there were a very limited number of safety products available, and none that could compete with the all-encompassing application of our extensive line up!
However, as expected, the turn out for the event was at a record low. Attendance was lively but alas dwindled a bit more as each our passed. By the last day of the expo, due to the lack of attendees, the exhibitors were becoming good friends with their neighbors!
As the expo drew to a close we were able to finally relax with an amazing Happy Hour sponsored by the event before calling it a night.
Thank you again for everyone who visited our booth and we look forward to another great time at the upcoming SEMA show in Las Vegas, 11/2-11/5!
