Following the success of the Plantworx Grand Stand Draw, which was held at the recent CEA Annual Conference, the sale of general stands for the 3rd biennial construction machinery and services industry exhibition has now commenced!
Plantworx has established itself as the major event in the UK’s construction calendar and the largest live action construction show in the UK, held over three days.
The ‘Grand Stand Draw’ was for the maxi or larger stands at the forthcoming 2017 Plantworx Show which is taking place at its established home at Bruntingthorpe Proving Ground, Leicestershire, UK from 6th – 8th June 2017. No less than twenty exhibitors participated in the Plantworx answer to the national lottery!
Companies who have committed to exhibit at the 2017 Plantworx show.
Companies who took part in the draw included A&Y Equipment, Bomag GB, Case CE, Cautrac, Construction Plant & Machinery Sales (Liugong), Doosan, Finning/Cat, Garic, Hyundai, JCB, Kubota, Liebherr, Manitou, Merlo, Messiah Corporation, Molson Group, Takeuchi, Terex, Volvo CE and Wacker Neuson. Many of these companies such as Finning/Cat, Volvo, Bomag and JCB were on the original ‘working committee’ when plans for the first show were announced.
Drawing the balls were Primary Engineer founder Susan Scurlock and CEA president Nigel Baseley – the event was compared by BBC1 correspondent Nick Higham. An interactive site plan was transmitted onto the presentation screen in the main conference hall and as the balls were drawn – each exhibitor’s logo was placed on the stand number drawn.

What’s new for Plantworx 2017?
The 2015 show was a resounding success with 11,223 unique visitors over the 3-day event which was an 18% increase on visitor numbers from the inaugural event in 2013. The show spanned 135,000 square metres and boasted 344 exhibitors.
The 2017 Plantworx Show is going to be even bigger – with a whopping 10,816.00 square metres of extra space – that’s a 20% increase in size on the 2015 show. There will be more exhibition stands and more demonstration areas to meet the demands of both exhibitors and visitors. There will also be two undercover pavilions at the 2017 show which will house more stands for ancillary and support products and kit that keeps the construction equipment machinery sector on the move.
Also planned is a shared demo arena where impressive construction machinery ‘all action’ displays will take place throughout the three-days of the event. This arena is in addition to the exhibitor’s own machinery demonstrations on their stands.
