Plantworx exhibition confirms new venue for 2025

THE organisers of the Plantworx exhibition have confirmed a new destination for the show in 2025.

The 6th biennial Plantworx will be held on 23-25 September 2025, at the Newark Showground.

Plantworx is owned and delivered by the CEA (Construction Equipment Association). The trade body described the move as representing a new chapter for the event, filled with ‘opportunities for innovation and collaboration’ among construction industry professionals.

The need for a new location was prompted by repurposing the previous venue in Peterborough for housing developments. The Newark Showground is said to stand out with its ‘excellent infrastructure, including permanent walkways and robust communication facilities’.

Simon Frere-Cook, Plantworx event director, said, “As we gear up for Plantworx 2025, our focus has been on building upon the success of the previous events. The thorough selection process led us to Newark, which excels in infrastructure flexibility, accessibility, and the reliability of its outdoor spaces, which are crucial for hosting an event of Plantworx’s scale.

“While we can’t guarantee the weather, Newark is highly regarded for its grounds’ quality and reliability, ensuring events run smoothly regardless of weather conditions. This new venue promises not only a continuation of the event’s legacy but also an expansion of its impact and reach within the construction industry.”

Key features of the venue for Plantworx 2025 include 126 acres of indoor and outdoor exhibition space, complimentary car parking for attendees, and a ‘strategic location’ just off the A1.

Plantworx 2025 is anticipated to host over 400 exhibitors, showcasing the latest in construction machinery, technology, and services. Sales for the event are set to open in June. For more information or to register your interest, contact
