This fall, the construction and trucking industries will take over TRADEX in Abbotsford. September 19-20, 2014 will see the return of TRUXPO and the arrival of the Pacific Heavy Equipment Show. The two shows will be co-located at TRADEX and are expected to draw thousands of visitors.

“We are excited to be pairing these two events for the first time,” said Mark Cusack, National Show Manager. “It’s a natural fit to combine the trucking and construction industries. There’s a lot of crossover in terms of both exhibitors and audience. Whether you are talking about a small vocational operation or large road building contractor, you will find trucks, trailers and heavy equipment. This is exactly what you will see in September.”

Presented in partnership with the BC Trucking Association, TRUXPO is Western Canada’s largest trucking and logistics show. It attracts local, national and international exhibitors and visitors and showcases new products and the latest in commercial trucking, logistics and transportation equipment. This year, it will take over the entire TRADEX complex, plus 80,000 square feet of outdoor exhibit space.

Special features for the 2014 edition include:

Conference Program

The Conference Program is organized by the BC Trucking Association. Sessions will educate and inform trucking association and industry personnel with relevant industry information.

Industry Luncheon

As part of the conference program, there will be a ticketed industry luncheon with a special keynote speaker.

Multicultural Focus

We’ll celebrate Canada’s diverse trucking industry with a full day of hands-on driver and industry information sessions – plus special entertainment and ethnic & Canadian food.

Recruiting Here

This popular feature encourages job seekers to come with resume in-hand. Drivers, mechanics and other related professionals are in demand all across the nation. Exhibitors will have the option to display special signage indicating they are hiring.

Show & Shine

Showcasing an impressive grouping of Show Trucks, all vying for honours in the Truck Beauty Show, the Show & Shine will be professionally judged. Presented by Pro- Trucker Magazine.

The Pacific Heavy Equipment Show will welcome equipment owners, operators and purchasers representing general construction, trucking, public works, utilities, aggregate production, road building and maintenance from across western Canada to see, demo and purchase the equipment and services they will need to sustain their operations into the future.

It will be an outdoor and tented event encompassing three acres of both static and demo exhibits in the TRADEX north parking lot. The Demo Zone will provide visitors with an opportunity to test equipment right on site – in real operating conditions, so they can see exactly what the machines can do.
