Atlantic Heavy Equipment Show re-invests thousands of dollars back into the industry
ALICA has contributed over $75,000 annually through a series of initiatives
The Atlantic Heavy Equipment Show, the most comprehensive heavy equipment trade show in the region, will return to the Moncton Coliseum Complex. It has been making an impact throughout the Atlantic provinces over the years, with thousands of dollars re-invested back into the industry by the Atlantic Land Improvement Contractors Association (ALICA).
The Atlantic Heavy Equipment Show, established by the ALICA in 1986, is an activity delivered by ALICA as a means of keeping members and Atlantic Canadians informed and aware of the latest products, services, equipment and technologies.
The success of the show has helped sustain the Association since its inception and has financially supported the forestry, construction & land improvement sectors through a variety of initiatives. ALICA has contributed over $75,000 annually through initiatives such as sponsoring student scholarships and field trips, as well as funding research, development projects and equipment operator training programs.
The Atlantic Heavy Equipment Show broke records at its last edition in 2018, attracting 14,800 visitors from across the Maritimes and beyond. The entire Moncton Coliseum complex will be filled with indoor and outdoor exhibits of machinery, products, and services. This year's show space is already over 95 percent sold out.

The all-new CASE TR340B compact track loader — operating at 90 horsepower with a 3,400-pound rated operating capacity — is the most powerful radial-lift CTL in the CASE lineup. Its all-new 8-inch LCD display improves on industry-leading CASE visibility with a new backup camera that is viewable in both forward and reverse operation. The display also showcases critical operating information and "trip" details. All-new electro-hydraulic controls, managed through the display, make it easier than ever for operators to dial CASE CTLs into specific application demands. All new cab controls and joysticks make the new TR340B easy to own and operate.
Industries such as construction, mining, energy, utilities and forestry, face many challenges when it comes to tracking assets and employees. Equipment often has to be transferred between locations, or monitored while it is dormant during off seasons. Lone workers may have to travel long distances or visit multiple sites during the course of their activities. And, all of this is further complicated today with shifting supply chains and economic realities putting further strain on the bottom line.
