Records were broken yesterday at Vertikal Days with visitor attendance up over 50 percent on 2010 while the region’s heavy rain and showers stayed away from the Haydock venue. Virtually all of the exhibitors reported strong levels of serious inquiries while most sold equipment off of their stands, one of the first being NRC Plant which sold the 70 70 tonne Link Belt TCC 700 on its stand within the first hour. Over 700 then attended the evening at which almost £6,000 was raised for the Lighthouse Club Benevolent fund, mostly through the selling of the six bikes that will be used in the 800 miles sponsored charity ride from Scotland to Cornwall next month.
Our reporting staff were kept busy throughout the day leaving little opportunity to update the news. This will be rectified as soon as possible.
Vertikal Days opens again today at 10:00 and runs to 16:30 if you have not already registered at this stage it is best done at the gate. http://www.vertikal.net/en/news/story/12615/
