As daylight broke on Thursday, September 27, Joe Johnson Equipment employees were already getting ready to welcome their guests with fresh pots of coffees and bright smiles. It was the grand opening of their state-of-the-art location in Innisfil, Ontario as well as JJE’s first annual Educational Day. Many guests arrived earlier than the 9:00 a.m. start time as they were excited to take part in the live demonstrations and to walk around and see over 70 units on display.
From the ongoing seminars hosted by industry leaders to the live demonstrations and 25 supplier booths to visit, there was never a shortage of activities in which the 700 suppliers and customers could partake. The afternoon brought big excitement as the Hart Memorial, James Norris Memorial and Conn Smythe NHL trophies were on display and the winner of a Harley Davidson raffle draw was announced.
