The 2019 APWA Chicago Metro Chapter Expo and Conference is happening next week in Villa Park starting May 22nd. It’s your chance to visit the latest and greatest equipment, people and technologies in Public Works, connect with friends, and take in the educational program topics lined up for you. We’ll be there, so say hello and spend some time with us. We’ll have equipment from New Holland and Kubota at our booth.
The Loader Roadeo promises to be a must-see this year. All drivers will be entered in a raffle for a chance to win great prizes. The Loader Roadeo competition is happening on Wednesday, and the NEW Backhoe Roadeo as well. Skilled drivers tackle the obstacle courses laid out for them in either front-end loaders or backhoe loaders. You’ll see one of the latest Hyundai wheel loader models battle it out on the front end loader courses again this year! And we’ll have a fierce New Holland backhoe take on the backhoe courses. Snowplow Roadeo? Of course! That’s on Thursday.
If you’re an early riser, there’s a breakfast where you can hear about the Village of Algonquin’s Road Scholar program. There’s a 5k run or walk on Thursday which ends at the Villa Park Historical Museum.
