The 2018 Hardscape North America and GIE+EXPO trade shows saw an increase in overall attendance. Additionally, the shows had a 3% increase in contractor registrants over 2017, attracting a total of 12,032 contractor attendees in 2018.
For the first time, contractors were able to visit the exhibit floor for three days, as well as purchase a VIP Pass, which allowed them to take advantage of all the HNA education opportunities at the show. In all, 276 attendees took advantage of the VIP Passes, significantly increasing the overall attendance at education sessions and completely filling the outdoor demonstration area seating.
The 2019 HNA trade show promises to be even bigger and better. Mark your calendar for October 16-18, 2019 in Louisville.
