APEX 2014 - one week to go
By Euan Youdale10 June 2014
APEX 2014 opens its doors in one week, offfering the biggest exhibition area to date and dozens of product launches.
The three-day event takes place 24 to 26 June at the RAI Exhibition Centre in Amsterdam, the Netherlands.
It will be the biggest APEX ever, with around 100 exhibitors and dozens of product launches in an inside exhibition area of 11000 square metres and outside area of 10000 square metres - a substantial increase from the last APEX show, held at MECC Maastricht in 2011.
Exhibitors and delegates to APEX also have the chance to raise funds for a deserving Netherlands-based charity.
A 5 km sponsored fun run is to be held at the Amsterdam RAI convention centre on 26 June, and so far participants from companies JLG, CTE Italy, Riwal, Manitou, TH Waites and Dinolift have signed up, as well as from KHL – the publisher of AI magazine.
The run, which will start at the RAI exhibition centre at 7.00 am, is in support of the children’s charity CliniClowns, which provides entertainment for sick and disabled children.
Runners are encouraged to obtain sponsorship for the run, either personally or through their employers. A similar run during the 2011 APEX show raised €3690 for the Ronald McDonald Huis in Maastricht.
APEX will be held concurrently with the International Rental Exhibition (IRE) and the European Rental Association (ERA) annual convention, which will also take place at Amsterdam RAI. Attendees are able to walk freely between the two events.
