Well, a year of planning, months of preparation, 5 days set up and a great collaboration between the IDE, NFDC and J Mould (Reading) led to a very successful DemoExpo 2015 on the 26th & 27th June. The exhibiters excelled themselves not only with the amount of equipment brought into the show but they all worked together with the DemoExpo team to make it the success it was.
Over the 2 days the event was visited in excess of 5 thousand people, more corporate on the Friday, and a large mix and families on the Saturday. The feedback from all who visited and exhibited is overwhelmingly brilliant already wanting to book for 2017.
A big thank you goes out to the management team, the exhibitors and the visitors members and non-members.
Everyone’s talking about it!…
“I would like to express my sincere gratitude in organsising a fantastic event at Demo Expo. Your team were great at putting on such a strong show. I have been exhibiting at shows for 25 years. This is my first time I have ever written a letter of thanks to a show organiser, such is my level of appreciation. You have a winning formula and we look forward to the next show in 2017.” Sean Heron, Managing Director, Worsey Plant
“Having recently exhibited our full range of demolition attachments and recycling equipment at the joint NFDC/IDE Demo Expo 2015 at the J Mould Quarry in Reading, we are delighted to report this event was one of the most successful ECY Haulmark have ever participated in, we feel the success of which was largely down to the host and the organisers commitment and dedication to showcasing the best the industry has to offer. The quality of the visitors was second to none on the business day (Friday), whilst it was a delight to welcome the next potential generation of demolition operators, engineers and bosses on the Saturday family day and show them around our equipment and working machines. The Demo Expo has become a major event for people in the UK demolition industry since it’s first show in 2013 and long may it continue to grow, ECY Haulmark will definitely be on board for 2017.” Richard Yarwood, Managing Director, ECY Haulmark
“Demo Expo 2015 was a total success for the UK demolition Industry. Many key Customers visited the Liebherr stand and a few strong sales enquiries were received. In my opinion the UK demolition industry is big enough to have its own trade fair and this was reflected more so this year with a great attendance. The success of the show however is down to the organisers ( NFDC and IDE ) along with the superb facilities and support that J Mould provided. Finally the family day on Saturday was fun with many Liebherr Frisbees getting launched to and from the JCB stand which gave a good giggle! It was nice to see so many youngsters taking an interest in machinery and sitting in cabs of machines…these of course could be the drivers and operators of the future. It also gave us the opportunity to explain the importance of the Liebherr Apprentice Scheme we have running in the UK, we currently have over 40 Apprentices in the UK as it is clear unless we do something now the industry will have a shortage of experience moving forward. Looking forward to Dem Expo 2017 already count us in!!” Darren Bennet, National Accounts Manager, Liebherr-Great Britain Ltd
