The Adjuvo Group | Exhibiting this weekend with Highways England
The Nottinghamshire County Show is one of the most prestigious events taking place in the County of Nottinghamshire.
Held annually on the second full weekend of May, the show attracts a national audience, in addition to excellent support from the local town of Newark.
The Adjuvo Group will be on the Highways England stand for both days of the show this weekend demonstrating their virtual reality experiences to visitors.
Visitors will be able to experience a number of virtual experiences that highlight what it is like to work on the Highways England network and the dangers faced daily by those providing essential maintenance of our roads.
In addition, visitors may also try out various virtual training modules such as performing a vehicle check, and rectifying any defects, or learning how to use the controls of an impact protection vehicle – all done without any of the physical equipment being present, and whilst in the safety of a supervised exhibition stand.
We spoke with Naomi Hood, head of business development at The Adjuvo Group about their participation in the event;
“We were delighted to be invited along by Highways England to assist them at the show.
It’s great to see them attending events like this and engaging directly with the public. It really raises public awareness of the work their supply chain carry out on the road network each and every day, which hopefully will result in people taking a little more care when driving past roadworks and help keep our workers safe.
And that’s the specific reason we agreed to take part in the event, if we can help raise awareness of the risks road workers are exposed to by using our virtual reality experiences and putting people literally in their shoes for a short period of time then that’s fantastic.
If it slows one person down whilst driving past roadworks and opens their eyes to the dangers workers face then it will be a very worthwhile exercise, and one we are proud to be a part of.”
If you are attending the Nottinghamshire County Show this weekend be sure to drop into the Highways England stand and speak to someone from The Adjuvo Group about trying out their VR experiences…. They’re pretty awesome and not to be missed!
