Olympic Stadium in Montreal will host one of Eastern Canada’s largest heavy equipment shows, Expo Grands Travaux. Nearly 13,000 visitors came through the doors during the last edition and organizers are expecting an even larger turnout in 2012.
Show organizers report that the show on April 13 to 14 is now sold-out. This is by far the largest assembly of heavy equipment, in one place, in Quebec, in many years. Not only is the stadium floor full, but the adjacent “Great Heights” area is also bulging at the seams.
“Expo Grands Travaux has a proven track record, with an excellent audience, a vast exhibitor base and the best possible building for a show of this magnitude,” explains Show Manager, Mark Cusack. “This is the ideal way for manufacturers, dealers and anyone in this industry to build contacts, find new business, stand out from your competition, build brand awareness and most important, make sales. Expo Grands Travaux will deliver,” says Cusack.
“For buyers, what better time to source out your next purchase, because all the players will be here in one place, at one time,” says Cusack.
CASE, Yanmar, Doosan, Komatsu, CAT, Liebherr, New Holland, Link Belt, Kawasaki, Deere, Kobelco, Volvo, Sennebogen, Hitachi, JCB, Terex and many more.
The biggest and the best names in Heavy Equipment, along with their Dealer/Distributors, will be front and center in another gigantic show inside Olympic Stadium.
The producers of Expo Grands Travaux are pleased to launch the Winter Management Show feature. This will offer a unique opportunity to network with the top manufacturers, distributors and dealers from the leading snow and ice management companies. This venue is the ideal location to showcase the products, services, equipment and technology used in snow and ice removal and winter operations.
Equipment on display will include snow plows, attachments, sanders, de-icers/anti-icers, spreaders, trucks, salt storage, professional services and other solutions for Canada’s multi-billion dollar snow and ice removal industry.
In conjunction with the trade show component, the Winter Management Show will present a relevant and topical education component that will draw even more attendees to this event.
The timing for an event of this nature in the province of Quebec is ideal. The government is continuing to invest in infrastructure. The 2009-2014 Québec Infrastructures Plan represents investments totaling $42.6 billion. Of this amount, $28.5 billion is to be applied to maintain and renovate the province's health institutions, schools and road network, while the remaining $14.1 billion is slated for new infrastructure in the health, education and transportation sectors. New equipment will be needed to keep these projects on time and on budget and Expo Grands Travaux is the venue the buyers will come to.
Expo Grands Travaux has the endorsement of the ACRGTQ (Association des constructeurs de routes et grands travaux du Québec), APMLQ (Association des propriétaires de machinerie lourde du Québec Inc) and the CAED (Association canadienne de distributeurs d’equipement – Chapitre du Québec).
