2019 CANS Toromont Cat and Battlefield Equipment De-Icer re-cap

2019 CANS Toromont Cat and Battlefield Equipment De-Icer
Cunard Centre, Halifax, NS

On Friday April 26, 2019 the CANS Toromont Cat and Battlefield Equipment De-Icer brought out almost 1,800 individuals for an exceptional evening of fine dining, entertainment and networking. Our largest De-Icer crowd to-date, this was the perfect kickoff to the construction season! Held at the Cunard Centre in Halifax, the De-Icer is Nova Scotia’s largest construction networking event.

Guests enjoyed a meal of lobster, a quarter chicken dinner with half rack of ribs, or portobello mushroom as well as sweets, mussels, appetizers and refreshments, while being entertained by musical duo Rowdy Dow. De-Icer attendees also enjoyed shuttle-bus service which transported guests to the Marriott Harbourfront hotel, Barrington Street in downtown Halifax, and the Westin hotel at the end of the evening.

This year’s VIP Reception was also an overwhelming success; a special thank-you and welcome to all new CANS Members!
