Hire Association Europe, the organiser of the HAE EHA’s Trade Fair & Convention 2017, has announced that exhibitor bookings are robust and there are only ten stands remaining. The trade show is scheduled to run from 11-12 October at the Ricoh Arena in Coventry.
Marketing manager Ann Harrison commented: “The move to the Ricoh Arena has been very well received by both our membership and the hire industry as a whole, which is definitely reflected in the high number of exhibitor bookings that we’ve received. We’re delighted with both the number of companies who have already signed up and the calibre of products and services that will be on display.”
Companies that have already confirmed their presence include Arcotherm, Altrad Belle, Bosch, Calor Gas, Hilti, Husqvarna Construction Products UK, InspHire, Karcher, Legend Brands Europe, Marcrist International Ltd, Morris Site Machinery, Point of Rental, Snorkel UK and The Hire Supply Company.
This year’s HAE EHA Trade Fair & Convention will feature more than 60 exhibitors, a full conference programme, workshops, discussion forums and networking opportunities will ensure that delegates utilise their time at the event to maximum effect.
Building on previous years, the event’s theme of ‘Connect-Discover-Learn’ will focus on delivering insightful and thought-provoking content aimed to increase delegates’ knowledge and assist them in tackling the issues facing the hire sector and business community, regardless of the size and turnover of their companies.
Plans for the conference programme are progressing with announcement just a few weeks away and will include:
- Empowering women into the hire industry
- The research and development of future technology such as 3D
- Virtual reality, artificial intelligence and robotics; new construction methods
- Enabling the hire industry to position itself in the legislative decision making process
- Financial planning for anyone considering career breaks, retirement, and new business ventures
- Cyber protection law and the face of the hire industry beyond Brexit.
Harrison concluded: “We’re all working incredibly hard to ensure that this year’s HAE EHA Trade Fair & Convention is representative of the hire, plant and events industry. An impressive exhibitor list, strong conference programme and cross-industry support will ensure that this year’s event is an excellent opportunity to network with colleagues, gain knowledge and share best practice.”
