The upcoming Plantworx construction equipment machinery exhibition is a useful indicator of some of the current trends shaping jobs in plant hire, and in the construction sector as a whole.
Due to take place on June 2nd-4th at Bruntingthorpe Aerodrome in Leicestershire, the event is a 'working exhibition', with all kinds of construction equipment machinery on show in real-world settings.
A crucial part of that is the combination of heavy plant with mid-range machinery alongside one another, for an idea of how they would work together on a real building site.
There are 275 registered exhibitors, 121 of which are making their first appearance at the show, and key applications include earthmoving, site clearance, transport, and a general family-friendly atmosphere throughout the show.
Local schools will be visiting on the final day on school trips, and trade visitors have been told their younger family members are also welcome to come along.
Construction machinery has always been popular among young children, so the cranes and diggers are bound to make a good impression.
With that in mind, the event could do more than just allow for trade networking within the present-day sector - it might also inspire the next generation to apply for jobs in plant hire.
