Eighty-five companies have booked exhibition space for the ninth APEX, which promises to be one of the most successful in the event’s history. It takes place May 2-4 at the RAI Exhibition Centre in Amsterdam.
Eight Chinese aerial OEMs are also attending, which is a record for APEX and indicative of the growth in the Chinese aerial platform market.
The show is supported by sister publication Access International and IPAF and is organized by Industrial Promotions International BV (IPI).
Expect a considerable number of launches at the show, with perhaps the biggest talking point being JCB’s presence with its new range of access equipment.
