Organisers of LiftEx 2017 are putting the finishing touches to the most exciting package of visitor attractions in the
event’s history. Bringing together a compelling line-up of conference speakers, an action-packed exhibition hall, ‘hands-on’ engineering challenges and unique networking opportunities, this year’s show is designed to offer something for anyone with an interest in overhead lifting and work-at-height solutions.
Representing the UK’s only conference and exhibition dedicated to overhead lifting and work-at-height, LiftEx 2017 takes place on Wednesday 29th and Thursday 30th November at the International Centre Telford – right in the heart of England. The conference runs on the first day of the show, and will feature speakers drawn from the private sector, employer organisations and specialist training and engineering consultancies. A truly eclectic mix of issues will be explored, encompassing the impact of Brexit, the challenges involved in creating a proactive safety culture, the design of moving structures, benefits and applications of magnetic wire rope testing, and the specific demands of safe, legal lifting in the entertainment sector. Delegate places can be booked online at www.liftex.org/conference
Alongside the conference, admission to the two-day trade exhibition is free-of-charge. Here visitors will be able to see the latest offerings from around 100 leading suppliers. Lifting equipment inspectors can also find out how their skills measure up in LEEA’s new Proficiency Test Challenge. Meanwhile, in the Innovation Theatre on Thursday, suppliers have just ten minutes to pitch their latest products, services and applications. Contenders for the Innovation Fast Pitch Award this year include ground-breaking developments from Hydra-Slide, ROCOL, Van Beest, Sampson Rope and CMCO. Visitor registration is now open at www.liftex.org/register
Bringing together hundreds of end users, suppliers and other stakeholders, LiftEx also creates unrivalled networking opportunities. Furthermore, for the very first time, non-members of LEEA, the organisers of LiftEx, will be able to attend the association’s drinks reception and dinner dance on the Wednesday evening. Advance booking for this ever-popular social event is essential, with full details at www.liftex.org/dinner-dance
”Everything is now in place for what promises to be the best LiftEx ever,” said Christine Littlewood, marketing manager for LEEA. “For all end users of lifting equipment, LiftEx quite simply represents the quickest and easiest way of staying up to date with the latest developments in this safety-critical industry sector.”
