The 15th Executive Hire Show (EHS) will open its doors next week, from 9 to 10 February 2022, at Coventry Building Society Arena (CBS Arena).
Chris Moore, Executive Hire Show, publishing and events director confirmed the UK show had sold out, with 154 companies signed up, 42 of them first time exhibitors.
Exhibitors will include Altrad Belle, Atlas Copco, BPH Attachments, Bravi Platforms, Coveya, Doosan, Genquip, Hird, JCB, Mecalac, Sany Snorkel and Thwaites.
New companies on show will include renewable power specialist Dymac Global; fleet management company VIAST Connect, power tools specialist RFINA, and Integritex, showcasing Baselight Portable LED lighting towers.
The ‘Innovation Trail Eco– Live’ showcase, focused on emerging trends and technologies, will be an event highlight.
Companies featured “will reflect environmental and sustainable solutions and products that embrace the latest technologies, including safety innovation and offer efficient and future proof solutions for the evolving hire sector.”
This year’s EHS is the first since 2020, with the 2021 edition pushed back a full year to February 2022 as a result of the pandemic.
A statement from EHS indicated the 2022 event would reflect an industry in recovery.
“Infrastructure projects are pushing forward, which has propelled the hire sector to reach new peaks, and the construction equipment industry is also embarking on the journey to achieve net-carbon-zero by 2050, therefore innovation and investment in new technology, safety and renewables and sustainable solutions, are at an all-time high.”
