Aaron Morby 12 years ago

Around a third of the space for the construction equipment industry’s new Plantworx show has been sold with 18 months to go.

Exhibitors that have already booked their stand space include big names like Ammann, Bomag, Case Construction, Hyundia, JCB, Manitou, Merlo, NC Engineering, New Holland, Northerntrack, Takeuchi, Terex, Thwaites, Volvo, Wacker Neuson.

The Construction Plant Hire Association will also be exhibiting at the show.

Haydn Steele, CPA’s health and safety manager, said: “Our members are generally very welcoming of the show and think that it’s long overdue.

“Also that at last there will be a show that is providing exactly what they want to see. Some of the members also said that they will definitely be visiting the show and looking to increase their fleet.”

“As 2011 draws to a close the Plantworx team can look back at the year with positive thoughts and look forward to 2012, where the show will continue to grow.”

Simon Frere-Cook MBE, Plantworx exhibition director said, “We at Plantworx are really proud of what we have achieved in 2011 and would like to thank all those people who have been involved in creating this event.

“The final site plan is one that will maximise the experience at Plantworx 2013 for both the exhibitor and the visitor – it will be easy to move around the event between the static stands and the demonstration areas with the maxi stands spread throughout.

“There are plenty of stand choices and space for demonstrations and the Pavilion will provide a good location and layout for the indoor exhibitor.  We will be having dedicated zones for site clearance stands, learning, training, education and security.”

Plantworx sales manager  Angela Spink said: “I have received extremely positive responses from the exhibitors.

The number of booking forms I am receiving is increasing steadily each week and I expect this to continue – especially on the run up to the end of the Early Bird discount period, which closes on 31st December!”

The early bird discount of 5% is available until December 31st 2011 and a further 7.5% discount is offered to CEA members.

More details are available from the Plantworx website: The show will run from 14 -16 May 2013 at Stoneleigh Park Warwickshire.
