Civenex smashes attendance records

“This has been a record exhibitor attendance which reflects the value of the event, as well as the positive mood of the industry,” event organiser Frank Sticka said.“More importantly, the robust volume of high quality decision-making and business owning attendees continues to deliver sales prospects – exactly what exhibitors want.” Sticka said the strong exhibitor contingent this year resulted in sales of an additional 6000 square metres of paved area at the Western Sydney Dragway. In all, 26,000 square metres of exhibition space was sold. “Sites in a new 1500 square metre pavilion sold out quickly,” he said. “With some exhibitors already indicating the need for larger sites next year, there is optimism for the coming year and beyond from the infrastructure industry.”The show’s annual awards recognised Kennards Hire for the Best Outdoor Stand and Coates Hire as the runner up. Meanwhile the Best Indoor Stand award went to Draffin Manufacturing.The award for Most Innovative Product went to Tennant for the Gum Removal Vehicle, with Ranger and its Industrial Mobile Testing Bed For Chains/Slings as equal runner up with Combined Lighting Equipment for its Powercat.The Best Environmental Product went to Street Furniture Australia for its Aqua Water Fountain and plastic bottle refill, and Best New Product was awarded to Rigid’s See Snake Microexplorer.Civenex was held on May 20-21, 2010.
