About the event

Building on the success of the last four years, LiftEx 2009 is looking to shake off the cold economic chills, and introduce some warmth for its exhibitors and visitors. The exhibition takes place at roughly the same time each year, this years being held on the 20th of November 2009.

This years venue is the Chester Racecourse Heathcote Pavilion, a stylish and easily accessible site with plenty of car parking space for visitors. Visitor entrance to the exhibition is, as usual, free (subject to entry conditions).

Promotion of the event is taking new ground this year, with E-Marketing & coordinated communications, visitor numbers are expected to exceed 2008 levels. As usual, trade publications such as Hoist Magazine will be given the scoop with all of the details.

The major exhibitions focus on construction equipment, mobile cranes and automated systems. In the past this has left the factory crane, hoist and lifting gear sector poorly served. LEEAs LiftEx rightly brings the focus back to our sector. Due to the unprecedented popularity of this event, we have increased the number of stands to 53 so that we can cater for the extra exhibitors.

With a comparatively low cost, LiftEx provides an ideal credit-crunch busting opportunity to make lots of new contacts in a single day and reinforce those key relationships. Importantly, LiftEx is now welcoming more and more international visitors through its doors – bringing international business to the regional stage.



***This Exhibition is dedicated to the lifting equipment industry. Anyone involved or associated with the design, manufacture, hire, repair, refurbishment, maintenance and use of lifting equipment is especially welcome. If you're simply curious, please come along and experience some of the best the lifting equipment industry has to offer.***
