NHES holds 20th anniversary edition in Mississauga, Ont. Heavy equipment professionals from a variety of sectors filled the halls of The International Centre in Mississauga, Ont. for the 2017 edition of the National Heavy Equipment Show, which took place this past April. This year’s edition, the show’s 20th anniversary show, welcomed 13,370 buyers – a number roughly on par with the last edition, held in 2015. The focus on improving public infrastructure right across the county brought key decision makers and purchasers directly to this year’s show. This year, show attendees included a mix of industry professionals including the leaders of the construction, road building, land improvement, and infrastructure industries – along with job seekers, students and those training for specific trades. Special features of the 2017 edition included Rock to Road's presentation of the ‘Top 10 Under 40’, recognizing 10 outstanding individuals under the age of 40 from throughout Canada’s aggregates and roadbuilding industry; which took place during the CAED Power Breakfast, an economic forecast presented by the Ontario Chapter of the Canadian Association of Equipment Distributors; the Ontario Asphalt Pavement Council (OAPC) Spring Operations Seminar; as well as many other exciting components including the Rental Pavilion, the Mechanics Hub Recruiting Here program, and a focus on snow and ice removal equipment.
