Organizer Kaitlyn Heid says the expo is an annual showcase for suppliers.

This would be our 27th year running. We showcase indoor and outdoor vendors, and it gives a place for the city, counties, state, and township employees to come, get continuing education, and walk around and enjoy the show.

Heid estimates that 1600 attendees per day will attend the two-day show at the Public Works Building in St. Cloud.

Dozens of vendors attend to show the latest technology, with an eye toward fall and winter projects. Tyler Tysver is with Fergus Falls-based Mr. Sign, a sign manufacturer.

We look forward to bringing our products and showing counties and different municipalities what we have available (in) traffic control. We would have to be on the road for several months to talk to as many people as I can talk to in a couple of days at the show here.
