Crane and Hoist Canada

News Cranes Lifting Equipment
CUEE show offers invaluable connections for attendees

July 4, 2022  By Don Horne

The Electricity Distributors Association’s CUEE (Canadian Utility Engineering and Equipment) Trade Show and Marketplace is an institution within the Ontario and Canadian electricity sectors, running for more than half a century.

In 2020 the CUEE took a pause as COVID was sweeping the world – and finally it will return to the International Centre in Mississauga, Ont. on Sept. 13-14.

“Crane and hoist service and equipment suppliers are a key business partner to the utility sector and will be well-represented among CUEE exhibitors and are among the sectors that attendees will be keen on connecting with,” says Marica Macura, director of member relations at the Electricity Distributors Association (EDA).


CUEE is Canada’s largest trade show in the electricity transmission and distribution space, attracting a loyal base of exhibitors, who provide first-hand opportunities to see the latest in equipment and utility technology; and this year, app-based interaction opportunities will be added.

“The event is designed to enable on-site equipment displays, and hands-on presentation to and testing on the part of prospective buyers,” says Macura. “Given that CUEE has an extensive outdoor show area, this extends to even large equipment such as cranes and hoists.”

Included in this year’s show will be more than 45 product and service categories.

“CUEE has always been a uniquely valuable marketplace for both exhibitors and for utility attendees,” states Teresa Sarkesian, president and CEO of the EDA. “And that will be even more the case this year, after a long period when in-person contact with potential customers just wasn’t possible.”
