This week, the American Public Works Association (APWA) brought their annual conference, the Public Works Expo (PWX) to Minneapolis, Minnesota. Being so close to our headquarters in St. Paul, Minnesota, the MacQueen Equipment Group was excited to to participate as a Platinum Plus sponsor of PWX and it was certainly a busy week for us! The expo served as an excellent opportunity to connect with our customers as well as network with other individuals in the industry.
The exhibit floor opened on Sunday, August 28th. In addition to having our own booth on the show floor, some of MacQueen Equipment Group’s stock equipment was featured in our vendors booths, including two Elgin Pelicans and a Trackless MT7. With the expo being held in Minnesota, many of MacQueen Equipment’s customers were there and stopped by to chat with our representatives.
We hosted a Customer Appreciation Party on Monday night at the Crowne Plaza, as well as an Industry Party on Saturday. The Industry Party provided the opportunity for our employees, vendors, and other dealers to see our new building. The Customer Appreciation Party was a success with customers who were at the show attending from across Minnesota, with a few from Wisconsin, Iowa, and Nebraska as well. The event was hosted on a rooftop at the Crowne Plaza and featured a live band, providing a chance for attendees to relax after the expo and also connect with our representatives.
On Tuesday, the MacQueen Equipment Group’s Vice President of Sales was one of the speakers in a presentation on MN2050. As the Chair of MN2050’s steering committee, Dan provided insight about MN2050, what they do, and the future of infrastructure within the state.
