Charlotte’s Liberty Hall at the Park Expo and Conference Center was transformed on April 2 into a huge showroom offering earth moving contractors, highway and public works professionals an opportunity to get together, research and learn about a tremendous variety of equipment, trucks, products and services used by their departments.
“One of the many great exhibits that caught a lot of attention was the new truck on display, painted with pink flames featuring a Susan G. Komen breast cancer awareness theme,” said show producer Sue Cropper. “We’d like to thank the folks at Godwin Manufacturing for bringing in the truck and dedicating their exhibit space to such a noble cause.”
Susan G. Komen has been working to end breast cancer in the U.S. and throughout the world through ground-breaking research, community health outreach and advocacy. Since 1982,Komen has played a critical role in every major advance in the fight against breast cancer – transforming how the world talks about and treats this disease and helping to turn millions of breast cancer patients into breast cancer survivors.
The first annual Carolina Contractor Highway and Public Works Expo was a great success, Cropper said. Producers have locked into ‘the first Wednesday in April in Charlotte’ for the annual event. Seecarolinacontractorhighwayandpublicworksexpo.com.
