Bahrain to host flagship LiftEx event in September

April 2021

The Lifting Equipment Engineers Association (LEEA) is set to organise its flagship event, LiftEx 2021, in Bahrain from September 27 to 28 at the Gulf Hotel Bahrain & Convention Centre.

The lifting equipment is an important sector involved in an array of end-user markets including: oil and gas, construction, civil engineering, entertainment, renewable energy, road, rail and maritime transport, health and safety, logistics and manufacturing.

It will be a free-to-attend event aimed at addressing the different challenges, solutions and best practice advice for these sectors under one roof - providing a networking forum for industry peers, said the statement from LEEA.

Exhibits will include lifting, height safety and load monitoring equipment as well as solutions for materials handling, machinery moving, IT, inspection services and training, it stated.

“Holding this year’s exhibition in Bahrain gives LEEA members a post-lockdown chance to meet with new customers and partners and we expect the 250 members in the Middle East to really support the show,” remarked its CEO Ross Moloney.

“If you’re looking to do more business in the Middle East, this will be a key opportunity. Bahrain offers a central location for the Middle East and good connections for visitors from Europe, Australasia, South East Asia and America, with accommodation available on-site in the Gulf Hotel, he added.

According to Moloney, new sponsorship packages are available this year to suit a variety of budgets, with a particular focus on encouraging more digital connections before and during the event.

The exhibitors will be able to enjoy a hygienic, productive and high-quality organised event experience in a Covid-fee venue complying to all safety measures. A key highlight will be a new event app that will allow all participants to connect and interact in an effective manner, he stated.

A representative body for the lifting industry worldwide, LEEA has been playing a major role in this field for over 70 years – from training and standards setting through to health and safety, the provision of technical and legal advice – and the development of examination and licensing systems.
