National Heavy Equipment Show

National Heavy Equipment Show Rolls Out a Winner! 

For Immediate Release 

Mississauga, ON- The big iron was gleaming and the floors of the International Centre were jam-packed, as the sold out National Heavy Equipment Show rolled into Toronto on March 3-4, 2011. 

Nearly eleven thousand visitors came through the doors of this massive event and they were not left disappointed. Many remarked about the size and diversity of the heavy equipment being showcased. 

Exhibitors put on a show that could only be described as awesome. All the major manufacturers and brands were well represented with impressive displays featuring the latest and most innovative machinery and products on the market to date. Exhibitors reported excellent traffic and sales and many solid leads to follow up on in the months to come. 

Aggregates and Roadbuilding Magazine was proud to sponsor the Gravel Pit again this year and also produced the high caliber show guide. 

The Backhoe Rodeo Sponsored by Case filled the bleachers once again with some of the best backhoe operators in the area taking the controls and doing the seemingly impossible with these machines. Thank you to Case, Liu Gong, Volvo and New Holland for the use of their equipment for the rodeo.  We would like to congratulate Octavio Miranda, the winner of the 2011 NHES Backhoe Rodeo. Octavio has won every rodeo except one since 1996, so he is definitely a force to contend with. 

We would like to thank the following organizations for their support of this event: Case Construction, Hertz Equipment Rental, Aggregates and Roadbuilding Magazine, the CAED, OSSGA and OHMPA. 

We now look towards 2013.  Stay tuned for updated about our next National Heavy Equipment Show and we wish all of our visitors and exhibitors continued success until then.
