Excitement Builds for Atlantic Heavy Equipment Show

by | Feb 16, 2024 | 2024, Industry News, January/February, Logging & Sawmilling Journal

The Maritime Provinces’ largest showcase of heavy equipment machinery is set once again to move into the Moncton Coliseum, March 27 to 28, 2024, and the excitement about this major heavy equipment show is building.

With over 10,000 attendees at its previous edition in 2022, the Atlantic Heavy Equipment Show has proven its value to professionals looking to get inspired and expand their inventory. Attendees include key decision makers and purchasers, looking to upgrade their fleet and view the many pieces of equipment on the show floor.

“We are thrilled to continue the tradition of this show,” says National Show Manager, Mark Cusack, with Master Promotions. “With over 150 exhibitors already registered, this year will be bigger and better than we’ve seen in the past.”

The timing for the show looks to be solid as recent reports show there is a healthy number of capital projects on the go in the Atlantic Provinces. A report from the Atlantic Economic Council last year said that capital spending on major projects in Atlantic Canada was expected to increase by 13 per cent to nearly $15 billion in 2023, a 13 per cent increase from 2022.

A 2023 Major Projects Inventory identified 528 capital projects in various stages of development throughout Atlantic Canada, with a total potential investment value of $225 billion, representing an increase of 48 per cent.

Part of this is the ongoing investments required by the forest industry in the Maritimes, from the bush through to sawmills and pulp and paper operations. Forestry and forest products manufacturing contributes roughly $1.8 billion in economic activity to the Atlantic region and supports nearly 17,000 jobs.

There are also high profile capital projects, such as the White Rose offshore oil project in Newfoundland to clean energy projects in New Brunswick.

Much of the investment growth is due to the Atlantic region’s expanding population. Immigration and positive net migration from other provinces added more than 120,000 to its population over the last two years. Spending on large housing developments in Atlantic Canada was expected to be nearly $900 million higher in 2023 compared to 2019.

Those involved with all such projects are urged to attend the Atlantic Heavy Equipment Show. According to organizers, it will feature all the equipment, services, and technology to get the biggest jobs done with ease. Tons of big iron will be on display to showcase the industry’s leading companies and newest products.

The Atlantic Heavy Equipment Show has a track record of more than 30 years, getting the job done for anyone looking for equipment and information about heavy equipment. Every two years, the show attracts thousands of eager buyers from across the region. From roadbuilding and construction to forestry and aggregates, the show captures the full scope of the heavy equipment industry.

“The Atlantic Heavy Equipment Show remains the biggest heavy equipment event in Atlantic Canada,” said Cusack.

Organizers certainly saw a successful turnout for the 2022 show, with 10,000 industry professionals filling the halls of the Moncton Coliseum, looking to upgrade their fleet and view the many pieces of equipment on the show floor. “We heard many positive accolades from both exhibitors and attendees, which goes to show that everyone was happy to be able to reconnect again in person,” says show manager Mark Cusack.

Organizers say it is Atlantic Canada’s most comprehensive trade show—a must-attend event for anyone involved with heavy equipment.

For exhibitors, the show offers the opportunity to get in front of a qualified audience of 10,000+ industry professionals, representing the many users of heavy equipment across Atlantic Canada and beyond.

Covering over 200,000 square feet, this vast indoor and outdoor showcase features the very latest products, services and machines.

Booth spaces are available now, say organizers. The 2024 show website is now live at www.AHES.ca. Those interested in exhibiting at the show are encouraged to review the booth package and pricing options and purchase their space today, as exhibit space is in high demand and likely to sell out.

Online pre-registration is also available. Those who are interested in attending are encouraged to follow the event on Facebook and Instagram for the latest updates. For complete details on the Atlantic Heavy Equipment Show, visit
