Planning and preparation is full steam ahead for the country’s largest heavy equipment event, the National Heavy Equipment Show (NHES), which will be held at the International Centre in Mississauga, April 18-19, 2013.

“We are very excited to return to Mississauga for the 13th edition of this biennial event,” says National Show Manager, Mark Cusack. “At this stage of the game we have our largest exhibitor base ever. We are at 80% sold-out, with new bookings coming in daily,” explained Cusack.

The NHES will encompass Halls 1-5 of the massive International Centre and will showcase the leading equipment manufacturers, dealers and distributors of the heavy equipment and construction industry.

Show Management is actively pursuing the top 100 movers, shakers and decision makers in the construction and heavy equipment industry, from across Canada. A special VIP Industry Breakfast will be held for this group of contractors on day 2 of the event. More details on this will be released shortly.

Several Heavy features will showcase specialized industries and equipment, including the ever popular Backhoe Rodeo, the Gravel Pit and the Rental Pavilion, as well as the all new Winter Management Show, Recruiting Here feature and Safety Zone.

Exhibitors who are looking to grow their ranks and hire new employees will display signage indicating they are on the hunt for new talent. Visitors should come with resume in hand to meet prospective new employers in the industry.
