2016 Executive Hire Show

February 22, 2016

Filed under: Latest News — Louise @ 10:07 am

We are delighted to confirm that the 2016 Executive Hire Show attracted 1,851 relevant hire industry visitors.

This net figure for Celebrating Show 10 does not include non-exhibiting suppliers and various component manufacturers, as well as a number of other categories like training providers, asset financiers and recruitment parasites. Press and PR personnel have also been omitted.

The total number of unique visitors scanned was 2,495 and this figure also excludes all exhibitor personnel.

The Show attracted senior executives and procurement teams from all leading national hirers, sadly, with the continued exception of HSS.

Obviously, having not organised its Conference to coincide with the Show this time, the number of A-Plant executives fell to 51. With 66 visitors, Speedy represented this year’s largest hirer group to attend the Show.

In particular, Brandon, GAP and Hire Station continue to support our national event in significant numbers.

However, 83% of all relevant hire industry visitors were from independent operations, confirming the pivotal role of local and regional hirers in the on-going success of the Show.

Earlier today, we sent an e-mail inviting you to take part in our Exhibitor Questionnaire. Please complete and return it by close of play next Thursday, 25 February.

We welcome all constructive comments on how we can further develop our industry’s Show in the years ahead.

If you missed the announcement during last Wednesday’s Party night, we have confirmed the dates of the next THREE Shows. The dates are:

  • Wednesday 8 and Thursday 9 February 2017
  • Wednesday 7 and Thursday 8 February 2018
  • Wednesday 6 and Thursday 7 February 2019

The Exhibitor Questionnaire also invites you to comment on our planned Multi-Year Re-Booking initiative.

We’re hoping to sit down with the Ricoh Arena before Easter to negotiate our future tenancy at the venue and we’ll update on all our plans during the month of April.

On behalf of the Executive Hire team, many thanks for your continued support.

Best wishes
