The CPA (Construction Plant Hire Association) will also be exhibiting at the show. Haydn Steele, CPA’s health and safety manager has been talking to the CPA’s members: “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.”
The early bird discount of 5% is available until December 31st 2011 and a further 7.5% discount is offered to CEA (Construction Equipment Association) members. Shaped by some of the industry’s leading manufacturers, and with the support of the show’s organisers the CEA, the show is promising to provide all that is required from a working plant show, which includes lots of demonstration areas and the presence of major manufacturers and supporting products and brands.
Simon Frere-Cook, 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.”
Mike Coleman, operations director for the show, said: “From an OP's point of view the show site is settling down very well. There will be some minor tweaks and it is early days. Reacting to sales and exhibitor requirements means being ‘alive’ to small changes as we progress. I am confident that we will have a showground to be proud of and will meet the expectations of the industry.”
