The machines are huge, and the economic impacts even bigger.
Whether you're amazed by the enormous wheels, massive engines, or innovative capabilities of heavy equipment, or if you find forestry and mining and construction interesting, there will be plenty of stimulation today and Saturday at the Canada North Resources Expo in Prince George.
"Northern Canada's major sectors will be on display, including forestry, heavy construction, infrastructure development and more," said expo organizers.
"Don't miss your chance to join thousands of fellow industry professionals and see what lies ahead in your sector."
The gates are open to the public today from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. then the same hours again on Saturday. It is an indoor and outdoor extravaganza of local industry at CN Centre and the Exhibition Grounds.
Meet the people, see the live demonstrations, get an up-close view of the resource processing sectors and the ways our local people are working for families and economies.
"Featuring all of the equipment, services, and technology to get big jobs done, 2019 will be another monumental year," organizers said.
"Tons of big iron will cover four acres of indoor and outdoor space, showcasing the resources sectors' leading companies and products."
Built into the event is the 2019 Interior Safety Conference on today.
"This year's theme is Safety Responsibilities - Everyone's Role and the conference will include topics which include managing fatigue, marijuana in the workplace, human factors and workplace injury prevention using physiotherapy. The conference will provide practical information and tools for workers, supervisors, and managers," said organizers in a written statement.
You can pre-register online for the price of $10 at the event's website, while limited supplies last.
The walkup price at the gate is $20 for adults.
One adult's ticket will also allow a family to attend on Saturday for no additional charge.
