Diggerland are very excited to say that we exhibited our unique rides and drives at the UK’S Largest Construction Machinery Convention – PlantWorx 2019, and what a major success it was!
PlantWorx is a Construction Equipment Association (CEA) event based in Peterborough. The event is organised for businesses to showcase their craft amongst other like minded people, bringing all of those in the construction industry together. The event showcased some brilliant new plant technology, and the wet weather throughout the three days didn’t dampen the people’s passion for machinery!
In amongst the bustling, busy PlantWorx crowd were our big brothers, H.E. Services – showing us all why they’re the world leaders in Digger Hire! Supporting H.E Group were more of our family, BuyADigger. Alongside us all were some fantastic construction and heavy machinery companies such as John Deere, JCB and Hydrema. It was a dream day for all of us construction fanatics.
Displays at PlantWorx 2019
The exhibition had some wonderful displays such as:
- The Simulation Zone – The Zone consisted of six screens replicating a working construction site, designed to give you a complete immersive virtual experience!
- Classic Plant Display – We took a step back in time to see the archives of the classic machines, that inspired us to design the modern machines we see today.
- Primary and Secondary Engineering – A perfect example of the wonderful things on offer in the Modern Age of STEM degrees.
While PlantWorx brought everyone in the industry together, Diggerland brought buckets of fun and education for everyone with our Mini Diggerland. One of our mantras is aimed at getting kids and young adults into more vocational subjects, and this was the perfect opportunity for us to provide, not only children but adults too, a whole new experience. It was a complete success and thanks to our fantastic team, it was a very welcome addition to PlantWorx Student Day.
