Sweeper Rodeo Returns to NPE – Booth #241

Category:

Hopefully, you’ve already made plans to attend the National Pavement Expo in Cleveland next month. NPE 2018 will be held February 7 – 10, is your perfect opportunity to meet vendors and really see – up close- the incredible benefits enjoyed by over 50 other independent sweeping companies who are part of the ONLY co-op in the power sweeping industry – 1-800-SWEEPER. If you still need to sign up for NPE 2018, just follow this link.

As alluded to in our last blog post – 1-800-SWEEPER is once again bringing the fun to NPE with the Sweeper Rodeo featuring The SweeperSim operator training simulator.  During the upcoming National Pavement Expo, we’re inviting NPE attendees test their parking lot sweeping skills by participating in our “Sweeper Rodeo”, co-sponsored by Schwarze Industries and Nitehawk Sweepers.

SweeperSim creates a real-world, night-time driving experience behind the wheel of a parking lot sweeper. The tool is used in the field to provide best practice training to new and current sweeper truck operators. SweeperSim was the first-in-our-industry AR technology introduced during the annual Sweeper Summit in November 2016.

2017 NPE attendees had incredible fun and enlightening experiences with this new technology.
