Equip Expo shared its entertainment lineup for its 2023 trade show being held on Oct. 17-20 at the Kentucky Exposition Center. 

“We’re celebrating our 40th anniversary of Expo, and we couldn’t have grown to this point without the support of thousands of people — from our attendees and exhibitors at the show to the bartenders and hotel staff throughout the city,” said Kris Kiser, president of the Outdoor Power Equipment Institute, which owns and manages the trade show. “They all make the ‘Expo experience’ possible, and we want to say thank you with this concert.”
