LiftEx 2011, the UK’s leading exhibition for the overhead lifting industry, will take place on November 17th and 18th at Saviles Hall in Leeds. Organized annually by the LEEA (Lifting Equipment Engineers Association), LiftEx will once again showcase a wide range of products and services designed to improve the efficiency and safety of overhead lifting and work at height.
Now in its seventh year, LiftEx 2011 will be bigger than ever, with nearly 40% more floorspace than 2010. Over 60 companies are expected to take part, and 60% of the stand space has already been sold. The exhibition’s main sponsor is Servtech (www.servtech.co.uk), providers of inspection, inspection related services, rigging and lifting services to the offshore and onshore oil and gas industry.
Admission to LiftEx 2011 is free of charge for visitors and online registration is now open at www.liftex.org. In addition to those directly involved in the overhead lifting industry, LiftEx will appeal to a wide range of professionals, including those working in health and safety, training, plant engineering and maintenance, manufacturing, construction, mining, storage and handling, and the offshore sector. Alongside news and updates direct from the LEEA, visitors will also enjoy access to a free program of presentations from industry experts.
A limited number of competitively priced exhibitor packages are still available; for more details contact the event organisers on Tel: +44 (0)20 8020 5060 or email: firstname.lastname@example.org. Booking forms are also available at www.liftex.org
Established in 1944, the LEEA has over 460 member companies worldwide and campaigns vigorously for higher standards of safety within the lifting industry. In addition to providing members with training and expert technical advice, the association works closely with organisations such as the Health and Safety Executive in the preparation of regulations and British, European and International standards. Member companies include those involved in the design, manufacture, hire, repair, refurbishment, test, examination, verification and use of lifting equipment. Applicants are subject to an initial technical audit before full membership is granted, and then to a continuing program of assessments. For large scale users of overhead lifting equipment, associate membership provides benefits such as access to technical information and training, without the need for auditing.
