The Executive Hire Show for compact construction machinery will be held once more in the UK, with the organisers hoping to beat records from the previous event
The UK’s construction rental equipment event, the Executive Hire Show (EHS), will be taking place again between 9th and 10th February 2022. The exhibition will be at its established home (and newly rebranded) Coventry Building Society Arena (CBS Arena), formerly known as the Ricoh Arena.

The venue has received a cash injection of more than £7.5 million for a revamp which has delivered a world-class exhibition, event and conference centre. The EHS will remain largely unchanged, although the organisers have promised that the event will be bigger and better. The show previously had to be postponed due to the pandemic. However, the organisers believe that the show will be highly successful.

The announcement for the show comes at a time when the compact plant hire and equipment industry is booming, both in the UK and elsewhere. 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, so innovation and investment in new technology, particularly renewables and sustainable solutions, are at an all-time high. 

During the annual exhibitor ‘Kick-Off’ meeting, at the CBS  Arena, which took place on November 4th, the EHS team reported that 130 exhibitors had already signed up for the 2022 Show and that the 15th annual hire event is now 85% sold. 

Chris Moore, EHS, publishing and events director said, “We continue to receive regular stand enquiries with stands being booked every couple of days,  So, once again we expect to achieve 100% stand sales for another sold-out Executive Hire Show.”

Many of the exhibitors have increased their stand space, while JCB has chosen the EHS as one of the very few tradeshows it will attend in Europe during 2022.

The EHS team has revised the criteria for nominations to reflect environmental and sustainable solutions that embrace the latest technologies and offer efficient and future proof solutions for the evolving hire sector. The EHS is inviting entries from companies that are implementing new technologies to deliver efficiencies, cost savings or better service, not forgetting emerging technologies that are paving the way to net-zero.
