This
event had been organized and managed by the Resources Society and Central
Interior Logging Association (CILA) for many years and this group will still be
a driving force behind this event. Master Promotions Ltd., with its many years
of experience with forestry, heavy equipment and construction shows, plans to
grow this event which will now be known as the Canada North Resources Expo, presented by the CILA.

 

Prince
George is the hub for northern British Columbia, which is an ideal location for
an event of this nature as it is connected to all points north via rail and
inland port to Prince Rupert. The city has an airport, which has daily flights
to Vancouver and other major centres making it readily accessible for attendees
and exhibitors.

 

The
timing could not be better for an event such as this in this location. 32
Billion Dollars in Capital projects are underway with another 40 billion
earmarked for future consideration. Northern B.C. is bustling with activity in
regards to forestry, mining, pipelines, energy products, transportation, oil
& gas and so much more. This event will showcase the leaders and rising
stars of all of those industries.

 

The Canada North Resources Expo will
surely be a must attend event for industry workers, decision makers and buyers
of these flourishing industries to see everything in one place at one time.

    woodlots, community forests, silviculture, pulp and chips

“We are
very excited about our continued growth in B.C. and are pleased to be on board
with the Canada North Resources Expo
for the 2013 edition,” said Mark Cusack, National Sales Manager with Master

“This
event meshes perfectly with our current portfolio of heavy equipment,
construction, forestry, commercial fisheries and trucking shows that we
currently own or manage across the country and solidifies our presence in
Western Canada,” said Cusack.

looking forward to meeting new and current exhibitors and working with the
Resources Expo Board of Directors and the Central Interior Logging Association,

events for this industry in North America,” explained Cusack.

so pleased to partner with Master Promotions, and to see the expansion of our
show. It has been part of our strategic plan for years, as the North
diversifies and we take advantage of the world’s demand for our resources,”
explains MaryAnne Arcand, Chair of Resources Expo, and Executive Director of
the CILA. “We will be working side by side with Master Promotions to ensure
local involvement and expertise,” said Arcand.
