AHES continues to grow
By Andrew Macklin
February 29, 2016 – Atlantic Canada’s most comprehensive heavy equipment show returns to the Moncton Coliseum Complex April 7-8, 2016. Celebrating its 30th anniversary this year, the Atlantic Heavy Equipment Show boasts a vast indoor and outdoor showcase of the latest products, services, and big iron. Visitors walking the floor will be able to connect with hundreds of exhibitors showing off cutting-edge equipment.
The show has a humble history, having begun as an idea of one of the members of the Board of Directors of ALICA – the Atlantic Land Improvement Contractors Association. The first show was held at the Moncton Coliseum in the winter of 1986, only taking up Agrena A and half of Agrena B with some live demos in the annex.
In 2016, the Atlantic Heavy Equipment Show has grown to the point where, in addition to filling the entire Coliseum-Agrena complex, an additional 80,000 square feet of outdoor exhibits has been added.
In celebration of the show’s milestone anniversary, the 2016 edition will feature an exclusive pre-registration prize showcase. Show visitors who pre-register by March 24, 2016 will receive a ballot for a chance to win a prize showcase valued at over $3,000! Prizes include: a Weber BBQ courtesy of Brandt; a plate compactor from Maritime Case Ltd; and an iPad Mini + $500 for use at the online Liebherr shop courtesy of Liebherr-Canada Ltd. Ballots are available exclusively to those who pre-register by March 24th; additional details are available on the show website at www.AHES.ca.
The Atlantic Heavy Equipment Show is owned and sponsored by the Atlantic Land Improvement Contractors Association (ALICA).
The Atlantic Heavy Equipment Show runs Thursday, April 7th from 9am-5pm and Friday, April 8th from 9am-4pm at the Moncton Coliseum Complex. For complete details on the Atlantic Heavy Equipment Show, visit www.AHES.ca
