Backhoe Bragging Rights Up For Grabs at Cleveland Expo

Fri January 30, 2004 - Midwest Edition

It’s backhoe rodeo time again as CEG Productions holds its Third Annual Cleveland Construction Expo on April 14 to 15, 2004, at the Cuyahoga Fairgrounds in Berea, OH.

Conveniently located on a 10-acre site one half-mile west of I-71 at the Bagley Road exit, this year’s all-outdoor show will allow exhibitors to stay close to the center of the action.

The all-outdoor concept means contractors can move easily between the heated tents housing the smaller displays, and the outdoor display, demonstration and rodeo areas. This compacted area provides the perfect venue to bring buyers and suppliers together for a jump start on the spring selling season.

At the active demonstration area, showgoers can try out all the latest makes and models of equipment, from backhoes to excavators, skids steers, wheel loaders and much, much more.

A big draw at past Cleveland Construction Expos, the backhoe and skid steer rodeos will again be featured at this year’s show.

Backhoe operators will compete in timed events on several different machines. Skidsteer operators will run an obstacle course on a variety of models. Winning contestants will take home trophies and up to $5,000 in prizes.

Admission and parking are free.
