Organizers of the National Heavy Equipment Show have announced the trade show will return to the International Centre in Mississauga in 2019.
Coming off the heels of its 20th anniversary in 2017, the show, held every other year, returns on March 28 and 29.
The biennial event features cutting-edge products and big machine displays from the leaders of the heavy equipment and construction industries. The 20th anniversary National Heavy Equipment Show welcomed about 13,370 people, a number on par with the 2015 event.
Show attendees included a mix of heavy equipment professionals including the leaders of the construction, road building, land improvement, and infrastructure industries – along with job seekers, students and those training for specific trades, and some families with young children who were awestruck by the mammoth equipment.
“Planning for our 2019 edition is already well underway,” said Mark Cusack, national show manager. “We saw over 13,000 attendees in 2017, and we anticipate the upcoming show to attract an even bigger and more diverse crowd. With the current focus on major infrastructure projects across the country, we expect buyers to be out in full force with those projects top of mind.”
Attendees and exhibitors can look forward to several show features in 2019, including:
- Snow and Ice Removal: winter management products, services, equipment and technology.
- The Gravel Pit: a large display of working aggregate machinery.
- The Rental Pavilion: a variety of equipment, tools and products for contractors and road building professionals.
- Safety Products: a focus on employee safety and worksite security.
- The Recruiting Here program: an opportunity to connect job seekers with companies that are hiring.
Alongside announcing show dates, the show is also now open to exhibitor registration. For more information on booth packages or attending the show, visit NHES.ca.
