Plantworx 2019 to take a trip down memory lane with a Classic Plant display


Plantworx Construction Machinery Exhibition (11-13 June 2019 at the East of England Arena, Peterborough) will be digging up the past and paying tribute to classic plant and machinery in a dedicated arena at the show. 

Innovation is built on experience – so in addition to showcasing the most ground-breaking industry innovations, Plantworx 2019 will also be celebrating the heritage and legacy of the machines that have laid the foundation for today’s vibrant industry.

At the heart of the show, in the outdoor event arena, visitors can take a step back in time, revisiting the kit that inspired modern day machines with Plantworx very first ‘working’ Classic Plant display.

The exhibition will be fully operational, and visitors will be able to enjoy working displays from these iconic classics. The arena will feature an interesting variety of equipment including vintage dumptrucks, excavators and loading shovels, which will bring together a rich mix of key machines that visitors and vintage plant enthusiasts will recognise from the archives of constructions past.

Jeff Schofield, Plantworx marketing manager is organising the classic plant display, he said, “We are all rightly proud of our industry’s heritage and history. The Plantworx team is very much looking forward to paying tribute to these machines at this year’s event. Visitors will be able to walk around the exhibits and chat to the manufacturers, owners and enthusiasts, who in many cases have via a labour of love, painstakingly restored the machines to their former glory. We envisage that the Classic Plant arena will be a valuable addition to the show complementing the cutting-edge industry innovations our exhibitors will have on display on their stands around the show.”
