I am very proud that Plant Planet will host our first Conference on 11th May. The Digital Future has been 18 months in the making, our conference will be both led and attended by professionals who are looking to form new relationships and to build connections between their brands, alongside exploring how Digital Technologies will increase both efficiency & productivity in the construction plant sector. This event would not have been able to take place without the hard work & support everyone on our team here at Plant Planet. We know that companies are anxious to get back to face-to-face networking and we are excited to be able to provide a platform for facilitating discussion and leading change within the current climate.

– Darren Shelton, Business Manager for Plant Planet.
