Rain fails to dampen enthusiasm at Plantworx

15 May 13 There were more than 2,500 visitors for the first day of the inaugural Plantworx trade show at Stoneleigh Park yesterday.

While rain blighted the event in the afternoon, it was less heavy than forecasts had indicated. Several exhibitors, including Volvo and Terex, expressed satisfaction with stand traffic and event organisation.

The day began on an upbeat note with BBC Breakfast News’ reporter Steph McGovern broadcasting live from the show from 6am to 9am before the gates opened. Her interviewees included JCB CEO Alan Blake and Construction Equipment chief executive Rob Oliver.

There will be a full report on the event later in the week.
