Plantworx show gathers momentum

The countdown to next year’s Plantworx construction equipment show is under way.

So far 82 exhibitors have signed up for the first of what is set to become a programme of biennial events.

Sixty per cent of available space at the exhibition has now been sold, including 90% of the digging demonstration area.

Confirmed exhibitors include Ammann, Auger Torque, Bomag, Case, Engcon, Finning, Hyundai, JCB, Manitou, Merlo, Takeuchi, Terex, Thwaites, Volvo, and Wacker Neuson.

Last month the organisers announced that the event will include a “security village” showcasing plant theft prevention solutions.

“Unfortunately we live in a society and at a time when crime is on the increase,” said Datatag managing director Kevin Howells “Professional and opportunistic thieves are targeting construction sites, utility and transport infrastructure, agriculture, stealing machines, equipment, metal and fuel.

“Companies now need to take security as seriously as they do safety and have the proper processes and practices in place.”

The inaugural Plantworx event takes place from 14 to 16 May 2013 at Stoneleigh, Warwickshire.

It will feature 100,000m2 of space for working machines, live demonstrations and site applications.

The organisers hope to attract at least 250 exhibiting companies and more than 10,000 visitors.
