LiftEx 2019 is the free-to-attend flagship event of LEEA (the Lifting Equipment Engineers Association) taking place at the Marshall Arena (formerly Arena MK) in Milton Keynes on Nov. 13 – 14, 2019. This year, the not to be missed global gathering for the lifting industry will be part of LEEA’s 75th anniversary celebrations.
The Lifting Equipment sector is involved in a broad array of end-user markets including rail, construction, renewable energy, civil engineering, entertainment, road and maritime transport, health and safety, utilities, logistics and manufacturing. LiftEx provides a dedicated event to address the many different challenges, solutions, regulations and best practice advice for these sectors under one roof – providing an ideal networking forum for over 1,000 industry peers.
In a brand new addition to LiftEx, Day 1 will see the Innovation Award Showcase, sponsored by Industrial Training International (ITI). This dedicated home to demonstrations and presentations from the Innovation Award finalists pitching their solutions for votes from visitors will be the place to see cutting edge innovations for the industry. Visitors can cast their votes on the day, which will be added to those of the judges. The winner will be announced that evening at the prestigious LEEA Awards 2019.
Hosted by TV presenter Rachel Riley, the LEEA Awards 2019 will be announced and bestowed at the LiftEx 2019 Awards Dinner on Nov. 13 at the DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel, which is within the Marshall Arena complex in Milton Keynes.
In another new development for 2019, Day 2 of LiftEx will feature a sharp focus on training and knowledge in the Open Learning Zone. Here, LEEA Learning & Development and Technical teams will be offering visitors free training sessions and clinics. This will be an open learning environment for visitors supported by TEAM card assessment sessions, mini presentations on specific subjects and technical updates, with the opportunity to gain a certificate of CPD attendance.
Also on Day 2 will be a program of speakers delivering Business Support Sessions. These will offer free industry-specific advice to visitors on IT, GDPR, legislation, HR issues and more.
