Moncton hosts a full show

Apr. 8, 2014, Moncton – There wasn't any room to spare at the Atlantic Heavy Equipment Show in Moncton, New Brunswick. Each floor of the showroom was packed with forestry, construction and other forms of heavy equipment that drew industry professionals from throughout the region. There were 13, 877 attendees in total over the two days of the show.

Exhibitors fought through ice pellets, snow storms and faced highway closures as the region was pelted with a relentless spring storm early in the week. Forest machines were caked in snow as they were brought into the hall to be prepped for the show. When the doors opened, however, the exhibitors were ready and the booths were full of heavy machinery.

The show started out slowly on Thusday as many people were apprehensive about venturing out onto the highways after the blizzard. But Friday was a busy day with crowds gathering early and line-ups throughout the day making it the single largest one-day tally seen in the history of the event.
