Plantworx – the UK’s largest ‘working’ construction equipment machinery exhibition – is being staged on 6th – 8th June at the Bruntingthorpe Proving Ground in Leicestershire.
The Plantworx team and the show’s hosts, the CEA (Construction Equipment Association) have confirmed the show is a virtual sell-out.
This will be the 3rd biennial Plantworx event and it’s officially the biggest yet and exhibits will occupy an area equivalent to all the Premiership football teams’ pitches added together.
The UK’s largest ‘working’ construction event has 386 exhibitors committed to the show and of these more than 160 will be exhibiting at the event for the very first time. Over the course of the show more than 15,000 visitors are expected to attend the show and visitor pre-registration is up by 25% based on 2015 figures during the same period.
Visitors to the show, which spans over 140,000 square metres, will see the very latest plant and machinery operating in ‘real’ site conditions – compact plant will feature alongside mid-range equipment, tools and services. The exhibitor list reads like a ‘who’s who’ in the construction equipment market with all the key OEM’s exhibiting including Caterpillar, JCB, Volvo, Takeuchi, Kubota, Case Construction Equipment, BOMAG, Terex – the list goes on! Visitors will see hundreds of brand new machines and products including many world-firsts!
New at Plantworx 2017 is ‘The Hub’ which incorporates a Wi-Fi Hotspot and Innovation Zone.
Without modern, efficient plant the construction industry wouldn’t be what it is today. It’s machinery that makes it possible to create structures and infrastructure, on time and within budget, so it’s vital for construction industry professionals to stay up to date with the latest developments – the new Plantworx Hub is the opportunity to do just that.
The Hub is located at the heart of the show, where visitors can take a break from the hustle and bustle of the event, catch up on emails, messages and do business whilst doing business! The Hub will focus on innovation and new technology – activities from The Hub and from the main-showground will be broadcast onto outdoor plasma screens.
