by Ranger Kidwell-Ross

All of the following information is from the 2008 National Pavement Exposition, one of the top national tradeshows for the U.S. power sweeping community. The audio and video interviews are all hosted on host servers, so no files will download to your computer.

Over the years, a number of contractors have said they wished they could see what's going on at NPE, or listen to interviews rather than read them on their computer screen. Now, technology has finally advanced to the point where that's possible.
