By Euan Youdale24 October 2017
The inaugural APEX Asia is taking place in Shanghai, China, next week.
It runs alongside the well-established CeMAT Asia material handling and factory automation show, 31 October - 3 November, which attracts more than 75,000 visitors - visitors can move freely between the two shows.
Chinese access equipment suppliers at APEX Asia include Dingli, Mantall, Sinoboom, XCMG, Runshare and Liugong. They will join major western OEMs such as JLG Industries, Haulotte, Skyjack and Snorkel. Other exhibitors include Airo, TVH, Skyclimber, MCS and PG Trionic.
China and Asia are among the fastest growing aerial platform markets in the world and APEX Asia will be a showcase for manufacturers and dealers to promote modern access equipment to buyers and users across the entire continent.

The show will also benefit from the International Rental Conference (IRC), which will be held in the same Hall N1 as APEX Asia on the first day of the show. IRC attracts senior executives and equipment buyers from many of the world’s largest equipment rental companies.
APEX Asia is organised by KHL Group and B.V. Industrial Promotions International (IPI), in cooperation with Deutsche Messe AG, which organises CeMAT Asia. The show is supported by Access International and the International Powered Access Federation (IPAF).
“APEX is an established and well-liked show on the access industry calendar, but with the Chinese and Asian market developing fast it is clear that this region would benefit from a local show dedicated to access equipment”, said Tony Kenter, managing director of IPI.
