The Construction Equipment Association (CEA), owner and organiser of Plantworx, has revealed that Plantworx 2022 (scheduled for June 14-16) will now not take place as planned in light of the second postponement of Hillhead.
Instead, the CEA is working on plans for Plantworx events from the latter part of 2021 through to 2023.
Rob Oliver, chief executive of the CEA, said: “What we have learnt from the pandemic challenge is to be flexible with our plans for physical and other events. We have an excellent relationship with the East of England Arena and Events Centre, our Plantworx ‘home’ in Peterborough – and will be announcing some new initiatives with them and others in the coming weeks.
“We know that companies are anxious to get back to face-to-face networking, but not at the expense of their safety. Our new programme will aim to be attuned to the requirements of our Plantworx community in showcasing the best products and technology now available. We still believe there is a terrific future for bringing business people together to do business.”
The fourth edition of Plantworx, in 2019, attracted both a record number of exhibiting companies (450) and visitors.
