with its working demonstrations.” Patsy and Delboy then got to grips with the ‘lottery tombola’! The first ball to be drawn was Volvo and plot D – Mark Gunns of Volvo was rather pleased to be first out of the bag. The crowd cheered as the first company was placed on the site plan. After all the companies in the ‘Dig Zone’ had been placed, Patsy and Delboy left the stage and mingled amongst the crowd, clutching a green velvet bag each – which contained the ‘No Dig’ plots and companies.

Feedback from the guests was really positive. Rick Still, Hyundai’s Regional Sales Manager for UK and Ireland, was at the event and one of the participants in the draw, he said, “We are absolutely delighted with our position on the showground. Hyundai, JCB, Volvo and Case are all big competitors and this draw and working together on shaping the show really demonstrates the spirit of the event and PLANTWORX is delivering what it said it would, an event for the industry by the industry.” Rick concluded, “The evening was superbly organised and there was a perfect balance between business and fun.”

Merlo’s Sales Manager, Glyn Stanton, was also equally complimentary about the evening, “What a fun way to start off the most important event in the UK construction calendar. We are pleased with the layout, it’s logical and the draw was fair. PLANTWORX has given everybody the opportunity to do what they do best – and that’s business. Also the coming together of exhibitors and organisers to work on something together is unique and a recipe for a successful

and well attended show.”

The CPA (Construction Plant-hire Association) attended the event and will also be exhibiting at the show in 2013. Haydn Steele, the CPA’s Health & Safety Manager said, “What a very successful launch and the exhibitors in the draw all appear to be extremely happy with their plots. It really was an enjoyable process and a great way to launch PLANTWORX, which I see as a show for the future and something this industry desperately needs. The CPA is really looking forward to exhibiting at the show in 2013 and following its progress leading up to the show.”
