The flagship event of the Lifting Equipment Engineers Association (LEEA), LiftEx inspires, educates and unites the industry through educational and technical sessions, presentations on innovation, a packed exhibition floor and the must-attend LEEA Awards dinner.
The exhibition will showcase exhibiting companies during the two days, while The LEEA Awards on the night of Nov. 13 will offer a prestigious evening of food and entertainment celebrating successes in the lifting industry, and will be hosted by a celebrity speaker.
In addition to the existing features, the 2019 event brings exciting new content. The Innovation Award Showcase taking place on Day One will feature a dedicated demonstration area and pitches from the finalists of the prestigious Innovation Award. Visitors will be able to vote for their favourite to be announced at the Awards ceremony that evening. On Day Two, the LEEA Learning & Development and Technical teams will be hosting The Open Learning Zone, where LEEA will be offering free training and learning sessions. These will include TEAM card assessment sessions, mini presentations on specific subjects and technical updates. Those wishing to attend are advised to sign up in advance as numbers will be limited.
