June 28, 2016 - Emerging technologies for the jobsite of the future, innovative wearables to enhance health, safety and productivity, cutting-edge skills for careers of the future, and new materials to enhance our nation’s infrastructure. These are just a few of the things attendees to the 2017 CONEXPO-CON/AGG Tech Experience pavilion might experience as they step into the future of the construction industry. Today, the largest international gathering in the Western Hemisphere for the construction industries announced the new Tech Experience where attendees can actually step into the future and experience what’s new and next in the construction industry.
ConExpo-Con/Agg and IFPE 2017 are teaming up to unveil the world’s first fully-functional 3D-printed construction excavator and the first large-scale use of steel in 3D printing, known as additive manufacturing. The excavator, which will be on display at the joint trade shows in March 2017, will bring to life how technology is transforming the construction industry in line with the show’s 2017 theme, “Imagine What’s Next.” In addition to the pre-printed excavator, show attendees will see a second excavator printing live on the show floor.

Atlantic Canada's most comprehensive heavy equipment show returns to the Moncton Coliseum Complex April 7-8, 2016. Celebrating its 30th anniversary this year, the Atlantic Heavy Equipment Show boasts a vast indoor and outdoor showcase of the latest products, services, and BIG iron. Visitors walking the floor will be able to connect with hundreds of exhibitors showing off cutting-edge equipment.
Here’s a look at some of the great technology on display across the country this show season.
March 22, 2016 - Those electing to look at used equipment missed one of the best show floors in recent Rental Mart history, featuring booths packed with more heavy iron than the show has seen in a long time. Stanmore, SkyJack, Haulotte, Genie, A.E. Sales and Cavalier all had big lifts on the floor. There were no fewer than eight software companies exhibiting, presenting a wealth of choice for those looking to upgrade their systems. There was extra interest in the room with Occupational Safety Group and Haulotte running scissor safety training on the first day, and Fuels Learning Centre and L.B. White providing propane heater fuelling training on the second. The propane course got an extra lift from Stephenson's Rental Services, who provided a last-minute 100-pound cylinder, and Hy-Cor International, who helped out with an extension cord.
The Rental Mart is Canada’s showcase of the best new equipment for the rental industry. Here’s a preview.
The 2016 Canadian Rental Mart features an expanded education program with three educational seminars presented by top industry experts. In a change from previous years, this year’s seminars will take place in the comfortable confines of Sketch Cafe at the Toronto Congress Centre, just off the show floor itself. Admission to Rental Mart seminars is free to registered attendees. Don’t miss them!
Some might say it's a rotten year to have a show, but we here at Canadian Rental Service beg to disagree. Yes, oil prices have hit historic lows and Alberta, Saskatchewan and Newfoundland are feeling the pinch. Yes, manufacturing in Ontario and Quebec has been slow to pick up the slack with new jobs and new investment. Yes, real estate observers in the big urban markets are more worried than ever about a housing price correction. And yes, the economy is technically in recession. Some people might look at this as a time to batten down the hatches and stay home, peeking fearfully out the store window in hopes that opportunity will take a wrong turn and come wandering down their street. But we know that Canadian rental operators are made of sterner stuff than this.
Feb. 17, 2016 - The man from Hewitt Rentals loaded his new Little Wonder Brushcutter into the back of his pickup and slammed the tailgate. It was one of 11 of these machines that Hewitt had just purchased right on the G.C. Duke booth in the last minutes of the Canadian Rental Association Atlantic trade show, Feb. 13 in Moncton, N.B. "There," he said, "I guess that that will show anyone who says there is no point in going to a CRA show."
Feb. 9, 2016 - Fuels Learning Centre, in partnership with L.B. White, Stephenson's Rental Services and the Canadian Rental Mart, will offer show attendees a chance to obtain valuable expert training in safe propane heater fueling at no charge. Students attending the four-hour course on March 9 at the Toronto Congress Centre will be issued a Record of Training certifying them to hook up propane fuel sources in their province.
