Executive Hire Show 2017 - A Resounding Success!

The Executive Hire Show 2017 is over for another year – and what a year it was!  It was the biggest show in its 11-year history with more exhibitors than ever before – 190 to be exact.

The Executive Hire team is delighted to confirm that the 2017 Show attracted 1,813 relevant hire industry visitors.  The total number of unique visitors scanned was 2,447 and this figure also excludes all exhibitor personnel. The team also confirmed that 93% of visitors to the show also visited the new Hire Show Hall area – which is excellent news.

The Show overall attracted senior executives and procurement teams from all leading national hirers. With 52 visitors from A-Plant representing this year’s largest hirer group to attend the Show.  Representatives from the other UK national hirers, including Brandon, GAP, Hire Station & HSS  also made the pilgrimage to the Ricoh and continue to support this national event in significant numbers.

86% of all relevant hire industry visitors were from independent operations, which is up from last year. This re-confirms the pivotal role of local and regional hirers in the on-going success of the Show.

The Executive Hire team would like to thank all the exhibitors and visitors who attended the show and we look forward to seeing you all again in 2018 at the Ricoh Arena once again 7th & 8th February 2018.
