Portable Sanitation Expo 2015 reveals new location and dates
The Portable Sanitation Expo - the only UK event that is 100% dedicated to the portable sanitation sector - will be held at a larger venue next year to accommodate the event's growing popularity. Coventry's Ricoh Arena will host exhibitors and attendees from across the industry for two days of networking and knowledge building on 25th and 26th February.
The Modular Portable Buildings Association - the UK's only Not for Profit Trade Association for the Modular & Portable Building Industry, will be supporting the Expo, which is predominately aimed at the hire rental market including large festival and event organisers, the construction industry, military and government organisations and other end-users.
"The portable sanitation sector is worth approximately £2.5-3billion in Europe," says event organiser Portable Sanitation Europe's general secretary, Martin Murdoch.
"This market size and the increasing demand for information on both products and the regulations affecting the sector have driven our move to a larger, more central venue. For the first time, we will be hosting the event at the acclaimed, purpose-built Ricoh Arena, Coventry. This exciting platform will help push and facilitate the essential networking and business opportunities the portable sanitation section has to offer in the UK, and give us an external space for exhibitor demonstration and display.
"It is great to have the support of the MPBA too and their additional input into the content of the show."
There has been considerable investment with PSE appointing McCullough Moore, a specialist exhibition sales & management company, to support and drive the success of the event. Visitors can expect to meet top suppliers, experience show floor demonstrations and free training workshops on topics such as carbon footprint and energy efficiency issues, how to safely dispose of effluents, new Construction (Design and Management) Regulations and much more."
Discussing the market's business opportunity, Jackie Maginnis, MPBA's Chief Executive comments:
"Portable sanitation remains a growing industry and portable toilets are an integral part of almost every building site and outdoor event. This ever increasing demand provides an excellent business opportunity for innovation and opportunities for new or established companies who wish to diversify into this sector."
Last year's expo was held at the Telford International Centre and the feedback from exhibitors and visitors gave it a resounding 'best event to date'. As the Portable Sanitation Expo enters its 9th year, 2015's event is set to be bigger and better.
