Staff and Management of the Canada North Resources Expo (CNRE) were thrilled to see an impressive array of heavy equipment professionals at the CN Centre in Prince George, Friday, May 26th and Saturday, May 27th, 2017.

One of the region’s most popular heavy equipment trade shows, CNRE featured leading companies and products that are part of Northern Canada’s varied resources sectors – including forestry, heavy construction and major resources infrastructure. Covering a massive four acres of indoor and outdoor exhibits, beautiful spring weather attracted more than 8,000 visitors from the industry and their families.

Aside from the strong attendance and interest from multiple media outlets, there were several other memorable highlights from this year’s edition. The third annual Interior Safety Conference (ISC) was a major success, attracting over 150 delegates.

“This year the conference expanded to a two-day event with 85 people attending the manual tree falling and log hauling presentations on day one,” said Gerard Messier, Manager of Program Development. “Ninety people attended the safety and leadership presentations on day two. Topics included how to improve communication between different generations of workers, how the brain works and how the flight or fight response can lead to incidents, workplace fatigue management programs and new steep slope logging technology. A big thank you to Master Promotions, the organizers of the CNRE, who partnered up with the ISC again this year.”

Meanwhile, the show’s Recruiting Here program connected potential job seekers with exhibiting companies that are currently hiring. There were also several prize winners and individual honours. The photo contest winner was Nick Winther, who won tickets to Rocking River Music Fest 2017. The Facebook Like and Share winner was Amanda Isadore, who won a Stihl grass trimmer from Western Equipment.

Other highlights included Master Promotions and the Resource Expo Society presenting a $10,000.00 cheque to Brian Badge, director of college advancement at the Northwest Community College. In honour of Family Day, Master Promotions received remarkable support in collecting donations for the Prince George Salvation Army.

Stay tuned for updates and information about the 2019 event.
