Preparations well underway for DEMO International 2024
October 17, 2023 By Canadian Woodlands Forum
Anticipation rises with less than one year remaining until DEMO International takes over the Ottawa/Gatineau area, Sept. 19-21, 2024. A world-class event for the forestry industry, this edition is organized under the esteemed ownership of Canadian Woodlands Forum on a unique forest property in Venosta, Que.
Occurring only every four years in different regions across the county, 2024 will mark the 14th edition of this one-of-a-kind event. Over the course of its 50-year history, DEMO International has evolved into one of North America’s largest and unique outdoor equipment shows. The “all live and in action, in-woods” event will attract thousands of leaders in the equipment manufacturing sector featuring the latest technologies in forestry equipment, products and services covering all aspects of woodlands operations, including fully mechanized to small-scale forestry operations.
“Our site selection visit went exceptionally well with 50 plus forestry professionals from major manufacturers and dealers, making the trek into the forest. “ says national show manager Mark Cusack. “The meetings being held in the woods itself led to great camaraderie and expansive talks about the big plans for next year. Getting to liaise with the exhibitor base, allowed [the show team] to grasp a good understanding of how the different regions are currently performing.”
As the 2024 event approaches, details including the site map are becoming finalized.
A few of the distinct sections of the expansive site include Active Sites, Static Sites, Small Scale Forestry and Static Booths. With the trail stretching an astonishing 3.2 kilometers, attendees will get an immersive harvesting experience right in the heart of the forest. Future exhibitors stayed onsite during the selection visit for hours, creating buzz about what will soon become one of Canada’s biggest live action shows. Several manufacturers and dealers who couldn’t make this first round of meetings have also expressed their interest in coming on board in the next couple weeks.
This showcase wouldn’t offer the same experience without the unparalleled help of SBC Cedar, the landowners and property managers of the site.
