Expo Grands Travaux filling up fast
By Andrew Macklin
July 6, 2015 – Expo Grands Travaux will return to Montreal’s internationally renowned Olympic Stadium April 22-23, 2016. Excitement in the industry is already building, demonstrated by a strong demand for exhibit space.
With a full decade of history and growth, this massive heavy equipment show has established itself in Canada’s heavy equipment industry. The last edition was another resounding success, with 15,632 qualified buyers in attendance, sold-out floor space, and more than 350 exhibitors reporting vigorous sales activity.
Sales for the 2016 edition are going extremely well – especially given that the show is still over nine months away. “The bulk of the 200,000+ square feet of exhibit space on the stadium’s playing field has already been sold,” said Mark Cusack, national show manager. “Due to high demand, we’ve now added close to 100,000 square feet of space to the show with the addition of the East Hall.”
Visitors to the show will be treated to many exciting features, including a brand new DEMO ZONE, being held for the first time at Expo Grands Travaux. A small fleet of dump trucks will deliver thousands of tons of dirt directly onto the stadium floor and equipment will dig, lift, carry, break, and push – just like on an actual worksite.
Expo Grands Travaux has been endorsed by key industry associations, including: l’Association des travaux publics d’amérique (ATPA) – Chapitre du Québec; l’Association des constructeurs de routes et grands travaux du Québec (ACRGTQ); SIMA – the Snow and Ice Management Association; and l’Association des propriétaires de machinerie lourde du Québec (APMLQ).
