Booth sales are going extremely well, with lots of machinery exhibits and several exciting features planned that will showcase the Big Iron front and centre at this mammoth event.
The CNRE comes at an exciting time for this region and the industry as a whole.
“We are so pleased to be the host city for Canada North Resources Expo 2013. As BC’s northern capital and the largest supply and service centre for one of the fastest growing regions in Canada, Prince George is the ideal location for this show,” said Heather Oland, CEO of Initiatives Prince George. “With $70 Billion in resource projects planned and underway in northern BC over the next 10 years, there is a lot of business to be done and we look forward to welcoming everyone to Prince George,” said Oland.
Northern B.C. is bustling with activity in regards to forestry, mining, pipelines, energy generation, transportation, oil & gas and so much more. This event will showcase the leaders and rising stars of all of those industries.
The event will focus on the machinery, products, technology, services, talent and manpower needed to get the infrastructure developed, as these mega-projects ramp-up.
Show Management recently attended the BC Natural Resource Forum in Prince George. Traffic and interest at their booth was excellent and the buzz around this new event was extremely positive.
“Contractors and dealers alike are already talking about CNRE, and making plans to attend,” explains MaryAnne Arcand, Chair of Resources Expo, and Executive Director of the Canadian Interior Logging Association. “Concurrent events will bring billions of dollars’ worth of projects and their representatives together to showcase contract opportunities. Our steering committee is energized and excited, full of creative ideas to make this the best Expo Prince George has ever seen,” said Arcand.
