The event will mark the launch of the security village, which will be a major feature at the 2013 show in Warwickshire.
The countdown event will run alongside the Combined Industries Theft Solutions conference – ‘Security Threats’, with guest speakers, including Lord Henley, minister of state for crime prevention.
Event Director Simon Frere-Cook said, “The ‘One Year to Go Event’ – is an excellent opportunity to come along and get familiar with the show and see what we have planned for 12 months’ time.
“It’s also a chance for companies considering exhibiting at the show to come along and find out all about the exhibition.”
The security village is being organised in conjunction with the CITS and Datatag, who deliver the CESAR security scheme, on behalf of Plantworx organisers, the Construction Equipment Association.
Mike Revell, director of utility contractor Clancy Docwra, chairs the CITS group, he said, “The idea of the security village at Plantworx is to encapsulate all the very best security solutions and services in one area – a sort of ‘one stop shop’ for all your security requirements.
“The village is in a busy ‘high profile’ area of the Plantworx show and we are anticipating between 12 to 20 companies to take part.
“The stands will all be individually branded and all the exhibitor needs to do is basically turn up with their kit,” he said.
There will be daily demonstrations of new technology and specialist police officers will be on hand to offer advice and guidance throughout the show.
The Plantworx Awards will also be launched at the event with details of categories and criteria.
Informal workshops are planned to help exhibitors get the most out of being at Plantworx, with ideas for promotion and how to make best use of the media.
There will also be information on the proposed HS2 railway from London to Birmingham.
