Contractor Meeting


We are planning our third Contractor Meeting for people who's work falls under the scope of the Site Work categories. This is everybody from trucking, landclearing, excavating, blasting, boring, asphalt, grading, Quarries, Sand & Gravel, etc, etc.

We have some training talks and informational things. We have sponsors come to raise the money for this and other meetings we have during the year. Most dealers for the major equipment and truck brands are attending with quite a few smaller sponsors of other items.

I'd like to know what things do you like to see at contractor shows that you attend? What is it that makes one better than another?

Cocktails usually help with this.

Re: Contractor Meeting


Wow the evolution of this thread is astounding. It never got off the ground, But in all honesty I would have to go with a "boobages" and beer hybrid

Re: Contractor Meeting


Excavation post and you expected it to get off the ground? Hell, we got 15 folks here trying to bury it.

Its a great question Nick. I think that educational offerings are key. Its nice learning something new or seeing something familiar from a new perspective.

Get Brian to haul that little Swedish number of his down to the show. I'd love to see that thing in action in person.
