DEMO International ® To Be Postponed to 2021


An important message to DEMO International® exhibitors:

First and foremost, we hope that you are all safe and in good health.

Over the last 50 years, Demo International has become North America’s largest and most recognized ‘live, in-woods’ forestry equipment show; this years’ event scheduled for September 2020 was shaping up to be an excellent show; a direct result of the commitment and hard work by our exhibitor and contractor base.

However, the COVID-19 pandemic has created an unprecedented level of uncertainty and has had a profound impact on people’s health, livelihoods and travel, both globally and across Canada. The Demo Management & Advisory committees have been monitoring the circumstances which have been changing daily if not hourly. Based on their assessment and recommendation, the Canadian Woodlands Forum in partnership with our host SBC Cedar & show partners, have decided to postpone DEMO International until 2021.

As disappointing and unprecedented that this decision is, it was made in the best interest of the health and safety of our exhibitors, visitors, partners and contractors, and to also comply with policies and requirements from our Public Health authorities throughout the country. (For full details in Quebec, please click here ).  

We are in the process of investigating new dates for the event, and we hope to have information for you soon. We ask for your patience as we work through the many logistics of rescheduling the event; the Venosta show site and your location on the loop all remains the same, so there is no need for any action on your part at this time; your contract will automatically be transferred to the new show dates. All suppliers are being informed of the change. 

We will continue to update all exhibitors as we work through this quickly evolving situation and we look forward to working with you towards a successful event in 2021. Thank you.


Thank you and be safe.
