An array of crane companies like Mammoet, Verschoor, Jos Blom and Saan pulled out all the stops and put together a huge show of cranes covering a massive variety of capacities including a stunning Liebherr LTM1500 from Mammoet. Not everything at the show was American, old or heavy. For example, the newly introduced Scania NextGen from Rene Lammers BV was on show. Sponsor Nooteboom also had a stunning display of the its latest heavy transportation trailers and technology.

Inside, the driver’s market, had over 20 stands including, among others, HeavyTorque, Truckstar Magazine as well Scale Model producers IMC, WSI, Mammoet and many others. Over in hall two there was a slideshow and old timers movie running throughout the day, supplemented with a stunning display of scale models, including some rather interesting Lego models.
