What is the Executive Hire Show?


Launched in 2007, Executive Hire Show has quickly become the unmissable national exhibition for the tools, equipment and plant hire industry. This Show brings the industry together and is the annual event where Passionate Hirers Meet Innovative Suppliers. To be held on Wednesday 8 and Thursday 9 February 2017, Executive Hire Show builds on our industry’s great tradition of hire shows that date back to 1973.

There is also a great networking Party on the Wednesday night.

Who are the Show’s committed visitors?

The Show is a trade-only event open to hire executives throughout the UK and Ireland, and it has also attracted hire industry visitors from Europe and beyond.

Senior executives from the procurement and purchasing departments of the Top Ten national hire operations attend the Show, along with large numbers of independently-owned entrepreneurial hire outlets. At this year’s Show, 90% of visitors were from independent hire companies.

Who should exhibit?

If you are a manufacturer, supplier, dealer or importer of tools, equipment and plant and are looking to target the hire industry, there is no better opportunity to promote your products and services to this vitally important market.


Is the Show supported by a respected magazine?

Celebrating over 40 years at the Heart of Hire, Executive Hire News is the industry’s leading magazine and it has become the Passionate Voice of the Hire Industry. EHN is the platform on which we have built Executive Hire Show. With a current circulation of over 5,300 executive readers, EHN enjoys an unrivalled reputation throughout the hire industry.

Where is the venue?

The popular Ricoh Arena in Coventry is located at the heart of the UK motorway network and is within two hours’ drive of 75% of England. In addition, for the Show’s Irish, and other international visitors, Birmingham International Airport is only a short cab ride away – and, just for good measure, we’ll pay cab fares from the airport for hire visitors.

The Ricoh Arena is justifiably proud of its new tag as the ‘Home of Hire’.
