The Atlantic Heavy Equipment Show; Big Equipment, Huge Show!

The Maritimes’ largest Heavy Equipment show is back and bigger than ever at the Moncton Coliseum, March 29-30, 2012. Since 1986 and 14 editions later The Atlantic Heavy Equipment Show (AHES) has evolved into a must attend event for the heavy equipment, road building, forestry and logging sectors.
“The 2012 edition of the AHES is once again a complete wall-to-wall sell out. Inside space for the large equipment exhibitors is maxed-out with a growing waiting list every year! We are using every square inch we can find in all 6 buildings and could use more. The outside exhibit space is almost at capacity with only two spots left. Almost as much space being used there as inside the actual facility and we could not be more pleased,” says Show Manager, Mark Cusack.
All the major players in the heavy equipment industry will be at this fantastic show, highlighting the latest and most innovative heavy equipment that will be needed to get these mega projects done on time, and on budget.
It’s not just dozers and big tractors. This event showcases many industries, including the forestry and logging sectors which are a huge part of the economy in Atlantic Canada, so sales of this sort of equipment is extremely popular and relevant at this event.
“The beauty of exhibiting in a trade show such as this, is that you get to see your current customers face to face and also can greet new ones with a firm hand shake,” says Cusack. “Many sales are made right at the show or if not a closed deal, exhibitors leave with many solid leads to follow up on for many months after the event,” explains Cusack.
This is in part due to the high quality exhibitors this show attracts and the caliber of audience that comes to the show. This is the event that decision makers in Atlantic Canada come to.
