Countdown to Canada's largest heavy equipment trade event is on


The 2019 edition of the National Heavy Equipment Show is quickly approaching this March 28 and 29  at the International Centre in Mississauga. With a sold-out show floor and thousands of visitors pre-registered, the key trade event is ready to mark its 22nd year in just three weeks' time.

"We have some of the biggest players on today's market lined up for this year," said Mark Cusack, National Show Manager. "Our pre-registration is at an all-time high and the event is shaping up to be one of our biggest to date. We're excited and proud to see it all coming together."

With over 13,000 total visitors at its last edition, the biennial event features cutting-edge products and big machine displays; the International Centre will be filled with products and services for road building, construction, crushing & screening, and infrastructure among other high-profile sectors. With the current focus on major infrastructure projects across the country, buyers are expected to be out in full force with those projects top of mind.

Visitors are encouraged to take advantage of online registration to skip lines and save 50% off admission. Online registration is now available.

Career seekers have the opportunity to bring resumes and credentials with them to the show, as the ‘Recruiting Here' program connects job seekers with hiring companies. Meet some of the biggest Heavy Equipment players from across the country and get face-to-face time with businesses and recruiters; find the list of participating exhibitors here.
