At Plantworx 2017 there were onsite awards for those exhibitors who made a big impact on our onsite judges who looked at companies stands and demonstration areas. The awards – were presented at the Exhibitors Reception which took place in the Plantworx Hub on day two of the show – it was scheduled for day one – but rain and mud on this occasion did stop play!
In association and sponsored by Earthmovers Magazine, the Best Operator and the Best Live Demonstration, were the most hotly contested categories and Editor Graham Black and Digger Man Blog’s Nick Drew went looking for the best in class over the first two days of the show.
Fuchsia Exhibition Services were the sponsors of the Best Indoor Stand and Best Out Door Stand. Fuchsia director, Nicholas Coleman, assisted Plantworx sales manager Angela Spink and Plantworx operations director Simon Frere-Cook on the quest to find the best-looking static stands in both Pavilions and on the Showground. Nick’s father and co-founder of Plantworx, Mike Coleman, presented the Awards to the winners at the exhibitor reception.
The Best Onsite Contractor/Stand Build Award, sponsored by Plantworx, was judged by the onsite ‘build-up’ team headed up by Nicholas Coleman and Simon Bilbie, operations manager.
Another very significant award to be presented at the event was the Paul Bidwell Memorial Award which was presented to a Plantworx Exhibitor who has also made an outstanding contribution to the show.
Paul Bidwell Memorial Award is a tribute award in memory of the late Paul Bidwell, marketing manager of Manitou UK. Paul was a very keen supporter of Plantworx and was one of the original members of the ‘working-group’. Making the presentation to the award winner was Paul’s wife Rosemary Bidwell and son James.
The People’ Choice Award, voted by Plantworx Exhibitors was also a new feature of the event. The products were selected from the Innovation Award Winners.
