AORS, together with a participating local Association, hosts the Annual Municipal Public Works Trade Show in early June each year. It is the largest of its kind in Ontario with between 200 and 300 exhibitors of public works products and services, and upwards of 2000 participants.
This 2-day Trade Show provides an opportunity for public and private sector public works professionals to share information and technical developments in the materials, services and equipment required to build and maintain municipal roads and other core infrastructure.
It also allows suppliers of municipal equipment, products and services to meet with customers from across the province in one location, and develop new business relationships and explore new territories as it moves around the Province.
Our exhibitors showcase products and services for core public works infrastructure including road and bridge construction, maintenance and rehabilitation, building maintenance, facility management, communications, design/engineering, emergency disaster management, equipment/fleets, GIS/GPS, internet technologies, parks & grounds, storm water/flood control, municipal surveying, traffic and pedestrian control, transit, underground locating utilities, wastewater collection and treatment, water treatment, public works staff training and education.
