August 16, 2017 – Exhibit space is selling fast for the 2018 Atlantic Heavy Equipment Show. Even though the event isn’t until April 5 and 6, the show floor is now over 80 per cent sold out! Elbow-room only crowds are expected on both days of the region’s most comprehensive heavy equipment show at the Moncton Coliseum Complex, so don’t miss a chance to be part of this huge industry event.

Held every two years, the 2016 edition of the show attracted a record-breaking 14,700 visitors! Exhibit space was sold out, with the big iron covering some 200,000 square feet of indoor and outdoor space. Visitors walking the show floor were able to connect with hundreds of exhibitors who reported strong sales and solid leads. The 2018 show promises to be even bigger as countless customers look to source machinery and equipment for the many infrastructure projects taking place across Atlantic Canada.

Celebrating its 32nd year in 2018, exhibiting at the Atlantic Heavy Equipment Show puts your brand in front of appreciative and eager audiences. This is where industry leaders go to determine what they need to get the job done – on time and on budget.

“The Atlantic Heavy Equipment Show has evolved into the must-attend event for the heavy equipment, roadbuilding, forestry, landscaping and municipality sectors,” said national show manager Mark Cusack. “It boasts a vast indoor and outdoor showcase of the latest products and services.”


The Atlantic Heavy Equipment Show is owned and sponsored by the Atlantic Land Improvement Contractors Association (ALICA).

“We’re thrilled to have been the driving force behind this event since the show’s inception in 1986,” said ALICA president Mike Shea. “The Atlantic Heavy Equipment Show has become a gathering place for road building, construction and forestry professionals who look to this show to keep themselves apprised of the trends in their respective industries and to help them make purchasing decisions.”

The hugely successful show has a humble history, having begun as an idea of a member of the ALICA Board of Directors. The first edition was held at the Moncton Coliseum in the winter of 1986, occupying Agrena A and just half of Agrena B with live demos in the annex. Today, the Atlantic Heavy Equipment Show has grown to the point where it fills the entire Coliseum-Agrena complex, while an additional 80,000 square feet of outdoor exhibits has been added. The mammoth event is recognized as one of the premier shows in the country, with a loyal exhibitor base and a consistently strong attendance over both days.
