The inaugural LEEA Awards 2018 is already proving to be a resounding success based on member entries, according to Ross Moloney, CEO of The Lifting Equipment Engineers Association (LEEA).

“I am overwhelmed by the positive response – not only with the number of entries for what is the first year of the new LEEA Awards, but also the high standard of the submissions,” he reported. “This indicates real interest in the awards and what they represent, which is recognizing LEEA members’ excellence and showcasing it to the global lifting industry and to end user markets.

“We are very excited about the LEEA Awards event, which takes place alongside LiftEx 2018 on the evening of November 14 at the DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel in Milton Keynes. This will be a completely new experience for LEEA and we anticipate a great night that will give members a sense of pride in their industry and a set of benchmarks to which they can measure their own excellence.”
