2019 Vendor Expo & Support Opportunities

Get your name and product directly to the people on the front lines that use them daily. Both line workers and utility company decision makers will be on hand to not only watch the competition, but to look for new tools and resources to help their crews do their job and do it safely.

There are several opportunities for you or your company to be involved in the 2019 Gaff-n-Go Rodeo and get your name in front of this audience!

From bootlaces to cross arm braces, equipment locks to stringing blocks, and electric drills to professional skills, you will find it all at our RODEO VENDOR EXPO! Make sure your company is there to reach these line workers and the utility company decision makers!
