Plantworx 2017 is set to take place at the Bruntingthorpe Proving Ground in Leicestershire on 6-8 June 2017.  Exhibitor space went on general sale at the end of January 2015 and 124 exhibitors have so far confirmed their attendance.

Plantworx is held every two years and in 2017, the third time the event has been held, there will be 20% more exhibition space available compared to the 2015 event, with  140,000 square metres.

The organisers are also planning a shared demonstration arena where construction machinery ‘all action’ displays can take place throughout the three days of the event.  This arena is in addition to the exhibitors’ own machinery demonstrations on their stands.

The 2015 show drew 11,223 visitors over the course of the three days and had 344 exhibitors. 

Datatag managing director Kevin Howells said: “The show gives a fantastic opportunity for us meet plant people face to face.”

JCB sales director Dan Thompstone said that Plantworx had “filled a gap in the UK construction equipment exhibition market”.
