The week leading up to the recent Hillhead exhibition was a very busy one for the Plantworx team as was the show! The Plantworx stand, located in the Pavilion, was hot and not just because of the scorching temperatures outside, but also due to the amount of companies that visited the stand to make enquiries about the forthcoming working demonstration show (11th – 13th June at the East of England Arena in Peterborough), and book their space at the 4th biennial construction equipment event.
To date the Plantworx team can confirm 23 new bookings over the last two weeks and of those four are brand new to the event. The show now has a total of 111 exhibitors including leading OEM’s such as Marubeni Komatsu, Cat Finning, Mecalac, JCB, Thwaites, BOMAG and Takeuchi. The OEM’s will be demonstrating their machinery, and many will be offering operators to test the machinery on the demo areas.
A big Plantworx welcome to the latest new exhibitors, HE Services, JW Corporate, Colchester Fuel Injection and Diesel Mechanics Down Under!
The new Plantworx venue at the East of England Arena and Showground, will see the addition of the new Railworx show, the Plantworx team is promising an exciting new venue and a bigger and better show’.
Plantworx show director Simon Frere-Cook said, “In 2019 we are expecting 500 plus exhibitors to sign up for the event with the addition of the Railworx exhibitors – in 2017 we had 396 companies at the event.
Railworx and Plantworx will be one united show, however, for visitors who have limited time to spend at the event, we have designed the showground and indoor arena so that the Railworx and Plantworx areas are clearly identified and easily accessible.”
Simon added, “We have 53% more space than we had at the 2017 event with 103, 464 SQ M’s of stand space in 2019. That’s 34% more indoor space, 50% more outdoor static space and 66% more outdoor demonstration space.”
There will be plenty of demonstration areas, both digging and non-digging, which has been the show’s ‘unique selling point’ since the inaugural event in 2013. Operators will be able to get ‘stick time’ on the participating companies stands as long as they bring along the correct operating ticket and PPE.
