OFF TO MONCTON: The Atlantic Land Improvement Contractor's Association will host the 2004 Atlantic Heavy Equipment Show in April.
MONCTON, N.B. – The fifth biannual Atlantic Heavy Equipment Show is just around the corner and organizers expect it will bring in just as many, if not more attendees than previous shows.
On April 1 and 2, the Moncton Coliseum will be the stage for nearly 200 exhibitors and 12,000 visitors mulling about endless displays of the latest in heavy equipment.
“This show tends to draw mainly municipal road builders and loggers and forestry workers,” said Jennifer Allaby, operations manager for Master Promotions, the event marketing team involved with the show. “It is the first opportunity that many of these guys get to see the new lines of equipment, so that’s what it’s all about.”
The Moncton Coliseum recently added Agreena C to the complex and Master Promotions filled that new space before the show marketing even began, said Allaby.
“It’s as big as it can be,” said Allaby.
“Registration is currently rolling in like crazy and so we definitely expect to match or even beat our prior attendance records.”
Much of the show caters to loggers. The huge outdoor space is devoted to portable sawmills and it is always a great attraction with the visitors, said Allaby.
The Coliseum has been the perfect venue, she added, especially since the Confederation Bridge to Prince Edward Island was built.
“Moncton is the hub of the Maritimes,” said Allaby, “and since it is fairly central, this is where Atlantic Canadians buy their equipment.”
