The 2025 edition of Plantworx, the construction machinery exhibition, will be held at a new location. Construction Equipment Association, organiser of Plantworx, has chosen to host the show at Newark Showground from September 23-25, 2025.

The move represents a brand new chapter for the event and the need for relocation was prompted by repurposing the previous venue in Peterborough for housing developments, making the move to Newark necessary for Plantworx’s continued success and growth.

The choice of Newark Showground as the new venue was strategic. Following a comprehensive search for a location that meets the needs of this large-scale event, Newark Showground’s infrastructure, permanent walkways and robust communication facilities stood out.

Simon Frere-Cook, event director of Plantworx, 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 Newark Showground venue for Plantworx 2025 include 126 acres of versatile indoor and outdoor exhibition space, complimentary car parking for all attendees, a strategic location just off the A1 for easy road access, and convenient transport links – a short five-minute taxi ride from Newark Northgate station.

Plantworx 2025, marking its sixth show, is anticipated to host more than 400 exhibitors, showcasing the very latest in construction machinery, technology, and services.

Plantworx 2025 will continue its commitment to live demonstrations, offering exhibitors allocated plots to simulate genuine site conditions where machinery can “break ground’” With six 24m x 24m plots dedicated to depth digging and plenty of additional space for above-ground demonstrations on hard standing or grass, the event is set to be the largest working construction exhibition of the year.

As Plantworx gears up for 2025, the event team is also planning new initiatives to improve the exhibition experience further. More news is expected to be released soon.
