Show Diary

 

 

   

Our National Visitor Campaign is the centrepiece of our efforts to attract visitors to the Executive Hire Show. To mobilise and excite passionate hirers to attend the 2017 Show, we travelled over 26,000 miles and visited over 700 hire depots.

 

In the build-up to the 2018 Show, we are, again, working in partnership with Hire Supply Company to utilise the expert services of Steve McKenzie, who will continue to cover the North and Midlands of England and Wales, throughout Ireland, and parts of London, north of the River. Since the second Show back in 2008, Steve has been the face of the Show in hire outlets throughout the UK and Ireland and he, personally, has made well over 2,000 visits.

 

Ahead of next February's Show, we are also now working in partnership with Altrad Belle, with the team covering, the North East of England, as well as Southern and South west England and South Wales.

 

You can see how many depots we've visited so far on the counter above which also displays how many miles we've travelled.

 

From the constantly updated list above, you can see where we've been, and who we've seen.

 

Keep up with the Visitor team as they continue to connect up our hire industry.

  • November Updates

  • Stuart Harris - November update

    From low lying sun to snow blizzards, from fireworks to Christmas trees, wow what a change in just one month! These are just a few of my recollections as I made my visits to meet more passionate hirers in and around the fabulous landscape of the Yorkshire Dales and the ceremonial county of East Riding which borders the North Sea coast. The winding rolling roads which I spent most time driving on covering 1,141 miles were also a pleasant change from the stop start grind of the M6 here in the North West and the M60 around Manchester, which now seems to be the norm!...........

    A particularly great day of visits was had when I took the eastern Isle of Wight Ferry from Portsmouth down to Ryde, where I got to meet with Steve at Island Power Tools, Martin at Island Hire Centre and Richard at JMC. It was great to hear that passionate hirers were planning to cross land and sea to make it to the show. It just goes to show how much everybody cares about this industry. After a well-deserved nights rest in Newport, I hopped on the western Isle of Wight Ferry from Yarmouth to Lymington and headed home.......
