Plantworx 2017 Logo

The UK’s premier live showcase event for construction professionals, PLANTWORX, confirmed Danco as their preferred marquee hire contractor last year and our Sales Director, Les Johnson, has been liaising with the team ever since. With over 4500 sqm of visitor’s entrances and exhibitors pods to design and organise, good communication has been key.


This bi-annual event offers 1 million square feet of construction equipment and services to a target audience of plant and tool hire managers, construction managers, contractors, machine operators and construction professionals. Any suppliers associated with this event had to ensure the most stringent of H&S practices were adhered to, especially when installing a suspended floor system that was over 1m high at points.

You can read a more in-depth article about the event in industry publication Stand Out Magazine on pages 41 & 42, where our client and Event Director, Simon, describes the logistical challenge of running such a large scale outdoor event operation. Despite some rain and the inevitable mud, our experienced team pulled everything together during the build (even cleaning a few window panels by hand) and the event overall was a success.

“On behalf of the Directors of PLANTWORX, I would like to thank you very much indeed for the support that you gave to the event as a contractor, the pavilions were a great improvement on what we had in 2015. Your site crews certainly worked hard to get everything ready on time and working as a team enabled us to put on a very good event.

From the feedback that we have so far received from Exhibitors and Visitors, it appears that last week’s event was a success for the construction industry despite the dreadful ground conditions following the rain at the start of the event.

Thank you again for your support, until we meet again at Blenheim Palace next month …..” Simon, Event Director, PLANTWORX
