ExpoCam + Big Habs Win = Best Montreal Experience Ever

MONTREAL, QC– Montreal was the place to be last week, not only because the Canadiens outshot the Ottawa Senators 39-33, but also because Place Bonaventure was boosted by a jolly crowd of trucking folks attending ExpoCam.

The Habs’ victory added a layer of excitement to the show proceedings; the floors were crowded, there were over 300 happy exhibitors and over 200,000 sq. ft. of trucks, trailers and equipment, and what’s more , one lucky trucker walked home with $15,000 in cash and prizes!

On April 18, just as rambunctious Habs fans were coming down from their big win, trucking veteran Guy Broderick, a driver with APPS Transport,  was crowned HighwayStar of the year.  The award’s prizes include $10,000 in cash, provided by Newcom, Freightliner, Meritor, Espar, Cummins, Chevron and the Owner-Operator’s Association of Canada. 

The show also attracted some big new product announcements from the likes of International Trucks and Michelin tires.

Among the biggest new product announcements at ExpoCam were International’s ProStar ES 110, atruck designed specifically for the Canadian market, that answers the common need here to operate at a 110,000-lb gross weight rating, as opposed to 80,000; and Uniroyal’s new, affordable tire line.
