UK – The exhibition and industry conference dedicated to overhead lifting and safe work at height, LiftEx is this year heading to Scotland for the first time. Of particular relevance to both on and offshore logistics professionals and now in its twelfth year, LiftEx 2016 will take place on the Wednesday 23rd and Thursday 24th November at the Aberdeen Exhibition and Conference Centre -and readers of the Handy Shipping Guide can get an exclusive discount to the Conference portion of the event.

Over 100 trade exhibitors are expected to take part, and the LiftEx Industry Conference will once again bring together an impressive line-up of respected speakers on topics related to safe, legal and efficient overhead lifting. The popular ‘Fast Pitch’ event also returns, giving exhibitors the opportunity to demonstrate a quick-fire introduction to the latest technologies and applications in this vital industry sector. In addition to end users and suppliers of lifting equipment, LiftEx will therefore prove invaluable to professionals working in fields such as health and safety, training, plant engineering and maintenance.

Admission to the exhibition is free-of-charge for visitors registering in advance. In addition, until September 9th, early-bird discounts are available for places at the LiftEx Industry Conference, which features an impressive line-up of expert speakers. Geoff Holden, Chief Executive of the event organiser, Lifting Equipment Engineers Association (LEEA), said:

“I’m delighted that we are taking LiftEx to Europe’s ‘Energy Capital’ for the first time in its history. The energy, offshore and maritime sectors are all heavily reliant on overhead lifting, and LiftEx 2016 offers the local business community an outstanding opportunity to catch up with recent developments in training, accreditation, legislation, products and services.”
