10 years at the Executive Hire Show and HAE has enjoyed the most successful event so far. We signed up a record number of 6 new members during the show with more to follow and numerous enquiries relating to products and services. We even had some members visiting the stand to specifically discuss booking assessment dates for SafeHire Certification, before the rush in 2017.
During the show, HAE announced £100,000 fund to boost apprentices in the hire industry which has generated lots of interest from smaller businesses looking to take on an apprentice in 2016. The funding will provide enough support for up to 60 apprentices and is only available to members.
If you were at the show you will have seen our impressive new stand in all its glory. The focus being on Membership, Training, Future Hirers and SafeHire we had lots to talk about with new products, training information, SafeHire assessments and our Toolkit competition. Anyone signing up for information on Future Hirers, during the show, were entered in to a free prize draw to win a fully equipped toolkit as displayed on the stand. Congratulations to Harry Walker, Hire Assistant with Traction Equipment Ltd, the toolkit is on its way to you.
Finally, HAE were among 27 original exhibitors, from the first Executive Hire Show back in 2007, and we were awarded a certificate on the stand in recognition.
