SALEM, Ohio — Power Show Ohio, a decades-old show that had served the agricultural, landscape and construction industries, will be discontinued beginning next year, according to organizers.

Power Show Ohio, which was first held in 1971, wrapped up its 47th and final year with the January 2017 show, according to Dennis Alford, show manager.

Declining attendance

At its peak, the show drew around 20,000 people, Alford said. The past couple years, attendance was between 10,000-12,000.

The decision was made by board members of the United Equipment Dealers Assn., and plans are underway for a new show that will focus on lawn and rural equipment. That show, known as the Lawn and Rural Equipment Expo, is being planned for Dec. 7-8, 2018, at the Roberts Centre in Wilmington, Ohio.
