Your Guide to ICUEE 2019 Learning Opportunities
New Disaster Simulation Labs
When disasters and other crises occur, industry workers are often front-line responders. Desi Matel-Anderson, FEMA’s first and former chief innovation advisor, will lead new Disaster Simulation Labs at ICUEE 2019.
Desi will help attendees explore needs and concepts to create tailored and innovative solutions to meet a variety of crisis needs. She uses a proprietary three-step design process to help organizations understand the core issues and needs that are not being optimally addressed in any given crisis, and become better prepared for sustainable resiliency
Expanded Field Classrooms
We know attendees’ time is limited, so ICUEE uses ‘walking’ classrooms on the show floor to provide a hands-on overview of topics geared to those new to the industry (or those wanting a refresher).
Field Classroom topics include aerial devices, electrical hazards and equipment, equipment hydraulics, fleet management, horizontal directional drilling, safety, trenching, underground detection and marking, and vacuum excavating.
New Eat and Learn Workshops
Grab a bite to eat during these learning opportunities at Tuesday lunch, Wednesday breakfast and/or Wednesday lunch sessions. The topics include:
- Drone Panel: Effective Applications in Utility Industry
- The Business Model for Building and Maintaining a Smart Utility Infrastructure
- Workforce Development – Generational Story
ICUEE comes once every two years and is known as The Demo Expo for its equipment test drives and interactive product demonstrations. It is the largest and leading event for utilities and utility and construction contractors seeking comprehensive insights into the latest industry technologies, innovations and trends, owned and produced by Association of Equipment Manufacturers (AEM).
