Have you seen the Thomas & Betts area? If you are looking for transmission structures or distribution poles, you will find them there. Between them and SD Myers I don’t think you will be disappointed. When you include all the divisions this is one huge area to look at. I think it will take a couple of hours to get through all the product displayed here.

Stop by the GeoDigital booth. They took a truck with LiDAR gear and drove down the street. Then they process the data clouds. The results are on a large monitor. You see all the distribution lines, streets, cars, - everything. It is amazing.
Every T&D Expo I visit the folks at S&C just to see what they have added to their floor space. It always amazes me. They get bigger each time. This year they have added the InteliTeam SG and a whole lot of super technology. I can spend hours with them.
I get to play with the new hardware. They show me new software. I see how the whole package works as one. S&C is helping wind farms now. It is an education and their engineers really know how to explain it, so even I understand what is taking place.
Animals and electrical equipment just don’t mix! It’s not good for the equipment and it can be fatal to the animals. I have known Mike Lynch of Eco Electrical Systems for years.

We have come a long way from plastic owls.
