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.

Due to the unpredictability of the pandemic, AORS and the Simcoe County Road Supervisor Association, the hosts of the 2021 Trade Show, have made the difficult decision to cancel the trade show once again. After consulting with the hosts of the 2022 and 2023 shows, and with the approval of the Board of Directors, we have decided to postpone each of those events by one year, one more time. Hence, the 2022 trade show will be held in Barrie, hosted by the Simcoe County Road Supervisors Association; the 2023 trade show will be held in Strathroy, hosted by the Middlesex County Public Works Association; and the 2024 trade show will be held in Cornwall, hosted by the Eastern Ontario Road Supervisors Association. We want to thank the many suppliers who had committed to exhibit at the 2021 show for their loyalty and support, and look forward to seeing them in 2022 instead. We will be in communication with them directly regarding next steps. We also want to thank the many volunteer members of the Simcoe County Road Supervisors Association who worked diligently to plan the event. Their hard work will not go to waste as they look forward to hosting the trade show in Barrie next year. And thank you everyone for your patience.
AORS and the Simcoe County Road Supervisors Association look forward to welcoming you to the 2022 AORS Municipal Public Works Trade Show in Barrie, which will be held on June 1 – 2, 2022 at the Sadlon Arena (formerly Barrie Molson Centre).
