Booth sales are going extremely well, with lots of machinery exhibits and several exciting features planned that will showcase the Big Iron front and centre at this mammoth event.

The CNRE comes at an exciting time for this region and the industry as a whole.

“We are so pleased to be the host city for Canada North Resources Expo 2013. As BC’s northern capital and the largest supply and service centre for one of the fastest growing regions in Canada, Prince George is the ideal location for this show,” said Heather Oland, CEO of Initiatives Prince George. “With $70 Billion in resource projects planned and underway in northern BC over the next 10 years, there is a lot of business to be done and we look forward to welcoming everyone to Prince George,” said Oland.

The event will focus on the machinery, products, technology, services, talent and manpower needed to get the infrastructure developed, as these mega-projects ramp-up.
