TORONTO, Ont. — Canada’s National Heavy Equipment Show will be coming to Toronto’s International Centre on April 7-8.

Since its inception in 1997 this event has become the national meeting place for the heavy equipment and road building industries. In 2001 the show also became the meeting place for the paving industry with the creation of Canada’s Paving Pavilion and the endorsement of the OHMPA (Ontario Hot Mix Producers Association) who hold their Annual Spring Operations Seminar at the show.

The National Heavy Equipment Show expanded yet again in 2003 when the Rental Equipment Pavilion was created in Hall 2. Reflecting the trend in the construction industry, this feature has experienced tremendous growth and will be significantly larger at this year’s event.

The Backhoe Rodeo will be back in Hall 4A where top operators from across the country will vie for the coveted Rodeo Trophy. This year we are pleased to announce the return of David Fidler, president of ProMedia, as the rodeo organizer and MC. Fidler was the driving force behind the very first Rodeo in 1997, and we are pleased to renew our partnership.

With less than three months to go, the show is 90 per cent sold. Booths are still available by contacting Show Manager, Mark Cusack at 1-888-454-7469 or by e-mail at A full profile of the event including the exhibitor list and floor plan can be viewed at

If you are interested in visiting the show, we encourage you to pre-register to avoid the line-ups at the door. You can do this at or by calling 1-888-454-7469.

Show Hours at the International Centre are Thursday, April 7, 9a.m. 8p.m. and Friday, April 8, 9a.m. 5p.m.
