Plantworx is coming back in 2023 

After a COVID-driven hiatus and much anticipation form the industry, the Construction Equipment Association (CEA) is delighted to be able to confirm the venue and dates for the next Plantworx trade show. The 5th biennial construction machinery exhibition will be held on 13-15 June 2023, at the East of England Arena and Events Centre, Peterborough – which means you’ve got plenty of time to get that time-off request in.  

Following the feedback from both exhibitors and visitors from the 2019 show, which was unanimously deemed a resounding success, the CEA will once again be hosting Plantworx at the East of England venue and making the most of the Arena’s permanent exhibition facilities to showcase exhibitors’ products, equipment and services. 

Though Angela Spink, Plantworx’s Sales Manager, claims the organisation has already put in “an order for wall-to-wall sunshine for the 2023 event”, visitors of the 2019 show also applauded the Plantworx show’s new home, praising the ‘all weather’ venue as a ‘definite winner’, with its permanent walkways, good communication signals and Wi-Fi facilities – which allowed visitors to ‘do business – while doing business’!

The 2023 event is predicted to attract over 450 exhibitors from the world’s leading machine manufacturers, suppliers and service providers. Over the three-day event, visitors can expect to see the very latest in technological advancements and innovations and explore the ways in which these will impact the future of the construction industry. 

Simon Frere-Cook, Plantworx’s Event Director, says:  

“With so much importance being attached to the working demonstrations, we have undertaken an extensive survey of the grounds at the East of England Arena so that we can spread the demonstration plots and thus improve the footfall throughout the site.” 

The show, which is expected to be the ‘largest working’ event in 2023, is planning a comprehensive demonstration programme where exhibitors can put their machines through their paces in ‘real-site’ conditions – truly the ultimate demo.  And, though they haven’t made any formal announcements, the event team also has some new initiatives in the planning – so stay tuned to find out about all the upcoming news. 

Recently appointed CEA Chief Executive Suneeta Johal, whose first show as CEO will be the 2023 event, comments: 

“I believe with the amount of new and emerging technology this event is set to be the best yet. There’s a real appetite for attending ‘in-person’ exhibitions again. Our recent Futureworx technology exhibition proved to be a great success – and there was a real buzz amongst both the exhibitors and visitors.”  

Suneeta added, “The East of England arena is an established exhibition venue and with the great support from our loyal exhibitors, and a targeted visitor programme, we are confident we can deliver a memorable and valuable experience.”  

The 2023 site plan is still being finalised following the results of the survey and stand sales will begin in June 2022.  

Angela Spink is anticipating a high demand for stands following the site plan release date. She says, “Confirmation that the show will return to the East of England Arena will be welcome news to previous exhibitors following the encouraging feedback from 2019.  We are also very confident that new and old exhibitors will join us in 2023.”  

Plantworx 2023 will be exhibiting at the Hillhead Exhibition from 21-23 June 2022 on Stand: PB24. Angela Spink will be on hand at the show to answer any questions you may have about the 2023 event and provide all the details to keep you up to date with the show’s development.
