The Biggest Utility Expo Ever Opens at Kentucky Expo Center



MILWAUKEE – At more than 1.4 million square feet, The Utility Expo in 2021 has already surpassed the record set at the 2019 show, which made it the second largest overall trade show of the year. The “Greatest Trade Show” of the year according to Trade Show Executive is expected to bring up to $17 million of economic activity to the City of Louisville.

“We’re so happy to be bringing the utility industry back together, in person, both to keep our utility industry professionals up on the latest in techniques and technology, but also to enjoy the City of Louisville,” said Utility Expo Show Director John Rozum. “The equipment at The Utility Expo is what makes modern life possible. This equipment brings power to your home, takes water to and from your kitchens and bathrooms, and it’s all here for utility professionals not just to see, but to try out.”

With 85 percent of the show located outdoors at the Kentucky Expo Center, The Utility Expo organizers are confident they are bringing the industry to Louisville safely.

“Safety has been a key focus of The Utility Expo for decades,” Rozum continued. “And that focus on safety goes into the creation, planning and execution of the show itself.”

Local utility industry professionals are still being encouraged to register at the door, as this is not a show to miss. To learn more about registration, visit
