Record Attendance at 20th NHES
By Marek Krasuski
Canada’s largest heavy equipment show celebrated its 20th anniversary April 6 and 7 at The International Centre in Mississauga, Ontario. Innovative designs, cutting edge products for every conceivable sector were on display – industrial eye candy for both industry veterans and neophytes alike. Exhibitors were present from the heavy equipment, road building, construction, forestry, landscaping, aggregates and other related industries. This year especially – the National Heavy Equipment Show (NHES) is a biennial event – saw a strong representation from suppliers of machinery dedicated to infrastructure improvement, thanks in large part to funding in the amount of some $125 billion from the Ontario and Federal governments. Canada is under construction and there was no shortage of equipment at the Show to handle any job.
