Ian Millward, the Exhibition Secretary, commenting on the build up to date said “ We are very pleased with the response and bookings so far. We have sold over 3400m of demonstration, that’s over 2 miles of working machinery. The original static display area has sold out and we have had to extend it due to demand and there is still 3 months to go before the event! The level of bookings to date exceeds those at the same time in 2010. We are delighted!”
