A 10,000 squared open air demonstration space has been added to the original Civils/Interbuild plan.
Dubbed 'On site outside', the giant exhibition area will be next to NEC Halls 9, 8 and 7 occupied respectively by Civils, Pipelines and Interbuild plant exhibitors.
The new space has opened up opportunities for carrying out demonstrations and showing off equipment that the NEC's covered halls cannot handle. 'In terms of opportunity, the sky's the limit - literally, ' said organiser Jenny Fuller.
Demonstrations of engineering techniques, plant, pipelines, access equipment and site vehicles are set to take place.
