INNOVATION TRAIL 2020 – 'INNOVATION TRAIL LIVE'
Hirers must be sure to follow the Innovation Trail, which forms a trail of innovative equipment for visitors to check out as they make their way around the exhibition.
All exhibitors were invited to nominate a new product, or products, to be considered for inclusion. Candidates must have been launched since the 2019 Show ended, be available for visitors to inspect on the supplier’s stand as commercially available rather than being prototypes, and they must show genuine innovation in meeting the specific needs of hirers and end users.
An independent panel of hirers assessed the submissions and chose 16 products (from 15 exhibitors) for the Innovation Trail, which is sponsored by AL-KO. Of these, 10 have also been selected as being particularly outstanding and have gone forward into Innovation Trail - Live in a specially branded stage area in the Atrium area.
Each chosen Innovation Trail - Live supplier will be given a dedicated 10-minute slot to present and explain their product, and to talk the audience through its innovative qualities. The individual sessions will be held hourly during the two days of the Show, with each supplier’s time slot on the Wednesday or Thursday being drawn out of a hat for fairness.

So - follow the Trail!
