The Networking Party will also feature our popular truck giveaway. Find out if you’re the lucky winner of a 2012 Ford F-150.


We’ve expanded our outdoor demo area to be large enough so you can actually drive and test equipment. You’ll also be able to stop by “garages” for the companies that demo equipment. Finally, we’ve also included outdoor booths so you can really come and kick the tires and see the equipment in action. Here are the exhibitors you can expect to see outside:

• AERO Specialties with Eagle Tugs

• Corvus Energy Ltd.

• Genie

• Harlan Global Manufacturing

• JLG Industries Inc.


See you there!
