April 21st- 22nd at Molloy’s Quarry, Tullamore, Co. Offaly in association with Capital Flow, Topcon & IPCA

“If you want to meet your customers and get business done, CQMS ’23 is the place to be,” says trade show organiser Brian Patrick Coogan.

CQMS is Ireland’s only construction, quarry, recycling equipment show offering full live demonstrations of equipment. Taking place across two days, from April 21-22, this highlight event will showcase the latest industry products and innovations.

Running for over a decade and with more than 20 years of industry experience behind it, CQMS will host upwards of 160 trade stands. Manufacturers, distributors and local dealers will be on site to demo and display internationally acclaimed plant and machinery technology as well as related industry services including everything from tyres to tipper trucks, finance, access booms, engines and more.

The Construction Quarry Machinery Show is the perfect industry platform and is taking place this year in association with Capital Flow, Topcon and the IPCA (the Irish Plant Contractors Association). Over 10,000 people are expected to attend.

“It’s a one stop shop for brands to showcase their equipment and services to an end-user audience. There is solid business done on the day,” says Coogan.

“If you’re an end-user you’ll want to come to a show like this because you’ll have the benefit of seeing the machines at work, that’s the whole idea.”

Among the world-leading and recognised brands you can expect to see exhibiting on the day are Komatsu, OMEGA Crushing & Screening, Caterpillar, Terex Finlay and Powerscreen, to name a few.

“A lot of the equipment, particularly the quarry plant, is manufactured on the island of Ireland,” Coogan says. “We take huge pride in this being a home-grown show to demonstrate these products. It also brings people in from overseas so if you’re in the business of construction, quarry, plant or related services, this is the place to engage.

“It focuses on tried and tested business practices where you meet people face-toface, shake their hand, tell them about who you are and your products.

“The draw for visitors is while much of the equipment is manufactured locally, these are also global brands. All of these manufacturers are selling their equipment on an international stage.

“We are all living in a digital and social media space now but there is still a very great merit in meeting face-to face. We believe in getting to know your customer. We take a lot of pride in that.”
