The 3rd biennial Plantworx construction machinery exhibition is just five months away
Taking place at its established home at Bruntingthorpe Proving Ground in Leicestershire on 6th, 7th and 8th June 2017, and hosted by the CEA (Construction Equipment Association), the event is on target to exceed the number of exhibitors at the last show. Already 86 per cent sold, with 278 exhibitors – 74 of whom are brand new to Plantworx – the show will be 20 per cent larger than 2015 – with 140,000 m² of space.
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 – Plantworx is an opportunity to do just that.
New to 2017 is ‘The Hub’ an event arena located at the heart of the show, where visitors can take a break from the hustle and bustle. The Hub will ‘celebrate’ innovation and new technology – activities from The Hub and from the main-showground will be broadcast onto outdoor screens with live video roaming.
All Innovation Award Winners will be invited to exhibit their winning product in this area and take part in the ‘People’s Choice Award’, where visitors to the show will be encouraged to vote for their favourite product, machine or service.
Productivity will also feature, and there will be a focus on Inbuilt Technology, where visitors will be able to take a ‘walk around’ machines which are fitted with the latest in technology solutions for a busy construction site that will improve profit margins and help complete projects safely, on time and on budget.
Security and safety will form part of The Hub, which will include exhibits and demonstrations from the CESAR Equipment & Registration Scheme for the Construction & Agricultural Industries and CITS (Combined Industries Theft Solutions).
Additional features will include environmental solutions, machine simulators, autonomous machines and operation, drone demonstrations and much more. An undercover seating area will be located in the centre of the arena and other facilities will include a Wifi Hotspot so visitors can catch up on emails etc, catering and the Plantworx Bar, which will open at 4.30pm daily.
On the final day of the show (Thursday 8th June 2017) The Hub will play host to the Primary Engineer and Secondary Engineer Celebration event where 26 local schools will be showcasing their STEM engineering projects.
A new website where you can find out more about the event has recently been launched and there’s also a directory of 2017 exhibitors, where you can plan your visit to the show by getting all your ‘favourite’ exhibitor details emailed to you.
