GIE+EXPO is being rebranded as Equip Exposition for relaunch in 2022 in Louisville, Ky.

“We’re excited to announce this evolution of our industry-leading trade show,” Kris Kiser, president of the Outdoor Power Equipment Institute (OPEI), said. “The opening of our new office shows the investment our industry has in the event and in its long-standing location of Louisville. With OPEI bringing the management of the show wholly under the association’s umbrella, it was time to re-envision the event while honouring its long history.”

Concurrent with the launch of Equip Exposition, the OPEI board of directors and Kiser, joined by Louisville Mayor Greg Fischer, secretary of the Kentucky Tourism, Arts, and Heritage Cabinet Michael Berry, and other invited guests, cut the ribbon on its new show offices in the city. Equip Exposition will bring on veteran show management staff and Karen Williams, longtime head of Louisville Tourism, as senior vice-president of partnerships and development.

The former GIE+EXPO is the landscaping industry’s largest trade show.
