At Plantworx 2023 there were onsite awards for those exhibitors who made a big impact on the onsite judges who looked at companies’ stands and demonstration areas. The awards – were presented at the Exhibitor’s Reception which took place on the evening of the first day of the show. The winners were as follows;
The Winner of the Best Indoor Static Stand is Radiodetection. The judges, Angela and Simon thought that the stand as welcoming and the staff were very attentive and approachable. Visitors to the stand could visibly see the product and were in no doubt about what was on offer.
The second winner of the night for Best Outdoor Static Stand went to Xwatch Safety Solutions. The judges felt that it was welcoming, and an innovative use of materials including flower boxes and aged wood. The upstairs grass mezzanine provides a quiet place to sit relax and see the rest of the show away from the hustle and bustle. The seating area was also very welcoming and provided some much-needed shade. The staff also make a great team. Dan Leaney, Xwatch Safety Solutions, Operations Director said, “We were thrilled to win this award – this is our first Plantworx and we really made an effort with our stand. I am very pleased that the Xwatch team has been recogonised. Here’s to a fantastic rest of the show.
The last award was for The Best Use of an Outdoor demo area. Our judges, Nick Drew and Peter Haddock – were unanimous that this prize should go to Develon. There was a lot of thought and preparation that went into this stand – it really had the wow factor. A really nice feel and flow and was not just a ‘Tent in a field’ but a truly impressive stand.
Develon – Kevin Lynch, Marketing Communications Manager for Develon, said: “We are delighted to win the Best Use of Live Demonstration Award, especially with the transition we are making with the Develon brand and making its first appearance at Plantworx. The excellent Demo show on the stand carried out by our operators, Nigel Horton and Alex Humpage, brings across the high performance, innovation, versatility and durability of Develon equipment in an exciting and very watchable way.”
