By Staff Report   


Excitement is growing for the country’s largest heavy equipment event, the National Heavy Equipment Show (NHES), which will be held at the International Centre in Mississauga, Ont. April 18-19, 2013.

“We are very excited to return to Mississauga for the 13th edition of this event,” says national show manager, Mark Cusack. “At this stage of the game we have our largest exhibitor base ever. We are nearing capacity with new bookings still coming in.”

The NHES will encompass a significant portion of the International Centre and showcase leaders of the heavy equipment and construction industry.

This year’s show will include several features that showcase specialized industries and equipment, including: the Gravel Pit, Rental Pavilion, Backhoe Rodeo and the all new Winter Management Show and educational program.  


According to Cusack, the Winter Management Show presented by SIMA (the Snow and Ice Management Association), offers attendees an opportunity to network with manufacturers, distributors and dealers from the leading snow and ice management companies. It features an education component with topics that include:

Build a Bid Series with Rich Arlington, CSP — The Build a Bid program, developed by an experienced team of snow professionals, is a comprehensive breakdown of estimating and selling snow and ice management services.

Growing Snow Series with Phil Harwood, CSP—Managing snow with equipment has never been easy, and yet the business climate and challenges confronting a snow contractor may be tougher than ever. Join Phil Harwood, CSP in a two-part series as he discusses some real-life strategies to grow in snow.

Also new to the show this year, is the “Recruiting Here” feature. Exhibitors who are looking to grow their ranks and hire new employees will display signage indicating they are on the hunt for new talent. Visitors should come with resumes in hand to meet prospective new employers. Companies who are actively hiring and are participating at press time are listed at www.NHES.ca.
