The UK Hire Industry Reunites at the 2022 Executive Hire Show

Thwaites were delighted to be very much apart of the returning 2022 Executive Hire Show over at the Coventry Building Society Arena on Feb 9th & 10th.

With a now confirmed record crowd, the UK plant and tool hire industry rallied and reunited; it was our great pleasure to be exhibiting.

Supported by our friends and authorised distributors BTE Plant Sales and Shellplant Sales the Thwaites stand looked a little different this year. The stand size remained the same, however recognising that this show would be more about reconnecting, visitors found more comfortable seating areas, more space to meet, greet and enjoy a hot beverage or perhaps even a Danish pastry.

Thwaites Distributor Manager (North) Will Redman who led the stand design and build commented, “Our objective was to create and facilitate an atmosphere where we could listen to and communicate with our customers, prospects, distributors and further stakeholders. The introduction of an interactive ‘sales kiosk’ enabled focussed discussions; in addition, the launch of our new sales brochure was extremely well received”.

The final announcement at the event was the launch of a new video that supports hirers of the Thwaites 1-tonne hi-tip dumper. This machine is popular with DIY hirers, in recognition of this, Thwaites have produced a new safe operating video, giving pragmatic advice to reduce the risk faced by hirers perhaps operating a dumper for the first time. Easy to access via a convenient QR code on the rear of the skip, the initiative was warmly received by the hirers who visited the Thwaites stand at the 2022 Executive Hire Show.
