several days of snow, ice and rain making show preparations challenging, the
2014 edition of the Atlantic Heavy
Equipment Show
went full steam ahead April 3rd and 4th
at the Moncton Coliseum.

 

This marked the 15th edition of the show and it was bigger
than ever, filling the entire Coliseum Complex, plus 80,000 square feet of
outdoor exhibit space.

“Visitors were a bit apprehensive to venture out after the storm,”
said national show manager Mark Cusack, “but the numbers were steady throughout
Thursday, and Friday ended up being a banner day. The crowds began early and
the line-ups were continuous until late in the day.”

 

Cusack reported that Friday’s turnout was the single largest one-day tally in the history of the show. Total
attendance over the two days of the Atlantic Heavy Equipment Show came in at
13,877.

 

New features for the 2014 edition of this biennial show included the Product Showcase, allowing show
visitors to get a sneak peek of the many exciting products exhibitors would be
bringing to the show, as well as a new Recruiting
Here
feature that had exhibitors looking to hire skilled workers display
signage at the show. Recruiting Here was sponsored by Maizis & Miller,
Recruitment Specialists.

 

Exhibitors reported sales and solid leads coming out of this year’s
show, and many have already rebooked for the 2016 edition. We next look forward
to the Pacific Heavy Equipment Show and TRUXPO, taking place September 19-20, 2014 in
Abbotsford, BC, as well as the National Heavy Equipment Show taking place in 2015 in Mississauga, ON.
