Plantworx over 90% sold – very little space remains

PLANTWORX – the UK’€™s largest €˜working construction equipment machinery exhibition is just weeks away (2nd -4th June Bruntingthorpe Aerodrome, Leicestershire).
PLANTWORX – the UK’€™s largest €˜working construction equipment machinery exhibition is just weeks away (2nd -4th June Bruntingthorpe Aerodrome, Leicestershire).
Visitors to the show, which spans over 100,000 square metres, will see the very latest plant and machinery operating in €˜real site conditions – compact plant will feature alongside mid-range equipment, tools and services. Many exhibitors will be encouraging visitors, who present the correct operators licence, to try the kit first hand and put the machines through their paces on one of the many demonstration areas. Visitors will also see hundreds of brand new products including many world-firsts!
The UK’€™s largest €˜working construction event has at last count 311 exhibitors committed to the show and of these half will be exhibiting at the event for the very first time. In terms of size and exhibitor numbers the 2015 show has already exceeded the 2013 exhibition by 20%.
Only a few stands remain and the show organisers report that the show is expected to be a €˜Sell Out. The undercover Pavilion is already full and a very small amount of demonstration area is available. The 2015 Plantworx event is looking like the hottest ticket in town and a spectacular action packed 3-days!
Rob Oliver CEO, (Construction Equipment Association), said,

“€œSince the turn of the year space bookings have gone crazy. It may be that we will have to start a waiting list soon! The pavilion sold out a month ago and the remaining demo space is going very fast. We are delighted at the support the industry has shown for Plantworx and the show is and will always remain – a show for the industry by the industry.”

Rob added,

“We thought by adding 40% extra space we would meet demand – with deadlines for show guides and on site services swiftly approaching, those delaying their bookings until after the Easter holidays may be disappointed. The event is certainly proving to be popular with our exhibitors and visitor registrations are well ahead of 2013.
Latest survey figures from the Committee for European Construction Equipment (CECE) show the UK and Ireland to be the second highest rated region in the world for anticipated market growth. Companies expecting sales growth in the UK over the next six months outweighed those expecting a flat or negative picture by a whopping 43%. Only North America received a higher rating. These results further underline the fact that PLANTWORX comes at a good time in the business cycle for machine suppliers in the UK”.

Many new launches have been confirmed from companies such as JCB, Hyundai, ECY Haulmark, Avant Tecno, Cat Finning Takeuchi, Komatsu, Takeuchi, Wacker Neuson to name but a few – there are too many to mention! Full details of the new launches will be coming up in the forthcoming previews of the event – watch this space.
Addressing the Skills Shortage
In response to the current skills shortage in the construction equipment sector the final afternoon of the show there will be a Plantworx Student Afternoon€“ where Plantworx will be inviting students and teachers from primary and secondary schools and colleges to visit the show (after 12pm on Thursday 4th June) to get a taste of the Construction Equipment Sector. There will be no lower age limit after 12pm and the afternoon is aimed at encouraging youngsters to look at the construction equipment sector as a career. Visitors to the show are also welcome to bring younger family members along.
