Strong attendance greets first in-person post-Covid Atlantic Heavy Equipment Show.
The first post-Covid edition of the Atlantic Heavy Equipment Show was a resounding success. Almost 10,000 industry professionals filled the halls of the Moncton Coliseum for last week’s event, including key decision makers and purchasers looking to upgrade their fleets and view the many pieces of equipment on the show floor.
“The Atlantic Heavy Equipment Show remains one of the biggest heavy equipment events in Atlantic Canada,” said Mark Cusack, national show manager. “It was a pleasure to welcome everyone back to the show after a two-year hiatus.”
The show, which attracted a mix of industry professionals including leaders from the construction, road building, forestry, land improvement, and infrastructure industries, along with delegates from both the Canadian Public Works and Canadian Woodlands Forum’s Spring Conferences which were held nearby, may have been positively impacted by pent up demand and a desire to gather at a live event.
“We heard many positive accolades from both exhibitors and attendees, which goes to show, everyone was happy to be able to reconnect again in person,” added Cusack.
The dates for the next edition of Atlantic Heavy Equipment Show will be released in the coming months.
