The 2019 edition of the National Heavy Equipment Show is quickly approaching, and the expo is promising a schedule packed with educational opportunities and a sold-out show floor.

On March 28 and 29, thousands of visitors will head to the International Centre for the show’s 22nd year.  

“We have some of the biggest players on today’s market lined up for this year,” said show manager Mark Cusack.

“Our pre-registration is at an all-time high and the event is shaping up to be one of our biggest to date. We’re excited and proud to see it all coming together.”

With more than 13,000 total visitors at its last edition, the biennial event features new products and big machine displays.

The International Centre will be filled with products and services for road building, construction, crushing, screening and infrastructure among other high-profile sectors. 

Job seekers have the opportunity to bring resumes and credentials with them to the show, as the ‘Recruiting Here’ program connects job seekers with hiring companies.

In addition, a full schedule of educational seminars is planned for the two-day show.
