Last week’s Plantworx construction equipment exhibition in Bruntingthorpe, UK drew 14,000 visitors, up +18% on the inaugural event in 2013.

The show covered a total of 135,000 m2 at the Bruntingthorpe site and was home to 344 exhibitors from June 2 – 4 for the three-day show.

The organisers, the UK-based Construction Equipment Association (CEA), said the event was deemed a great success. CEA chief executive Rob Oliver said, “The aerial photos of the event are stunning – and underline the fact that we have created a show of substance and clear benefit to the UK construction market. I believe we have delivered on the promise of a show “for the industry, by the industry” with lots of business being conducted.

Dates for the next Plantworx exhibition have been set for June 6 – 8, 2017. The venue is yet to be confirmed, but the CEA said it was likely to be the Bruntingthorpe Proving Ground again.
