You can follow the Trail as you make YOUR way around the exhibition, and each product will be highlighted by an eye-catching “Innovation Trail” floor tile strategically placed by the appropriate stand. So you simply can’t miss them!


Exhibitors were asked to submit details of products as candidates for inclusion, which were assessed by an independent panel of hirers. Candidates must have been launched since the 2017 Show ended, they must be available to inspect on the supplier’s stand and must be commercially available rather than being prototypes. Additionally, they must show genuine innovation in meeting the specific needs of hirers and end users, rather than simply being “new”.




The big difference for 2018 is Innovation Trail – Live. From all those products on the Trail, the Judges chose 10 which they consider to be particularly outstanding. These go forward into Innovation Trail – Live, taking place in a specially branded stage area in Hall 2.


Each Innovation Trail - Live supplier has been given a dedicated 10-minute slot to present and explain their product, and to talk the audience through its innovative qualities. These sessions will be held hourly from 11am to 3pm during the two days of the Show. See the list on the left!


We are delighted that Paul Hutton, a podcast and YouTube channel presenter, has agreed to host Innovation Trail - Live. He’ll interview each company’s representative ‘live’ on stage and discuss the products.New products like these can help meet end users’ needs and enable you to win more business. So make sure you follow Innovation Trail when you visit the Show!
