Since the beginning the Central New York Hard Hat Expo has drawn a quality crowd of contractors and municipalities from the upstate New York market area. The show is held annually in March at the New York State Fairgrounds. The two day show consistently draws between 8,000-10,000 qualified attendees that are in the position to make buying decisions for their companies or municipalities.
This year the show will be held in the Exhibit Center along with outside exhibit spaces filled with equipment and industry related exhibits. The show is very accessible by interstates from anywhere in New York so that even the inevitable winter weather does not deter our hardy attendees. Promotion for the show is strictly through trade publications and direct mail to eliminate the "tire kickers" that just occupy space and waste exhibitors time.
