The final stands for the APEX aerial platform show have been sold, meaning that the exhibition is full more than four and a half months in advance.
Eighty-five companies have booked for the ninth APEX, which promises to be one of the most successful in the event’s history. APEX takes place on 2-4 May, 2017, at the RAI exhibition centre in Amsterdam, The Netherlands.
Almost all the top manufacturers of access equipment will be present at APEX, including a wide variety of products, such as self-propelled machines, vehicle mounted platforms, hoists and mast climbers, low level platforms and access towers. There will also be used equipment specialists, rental software companies and other suppliers of ancillary products and services.
Companies that have already booked stand space include JLG, Manitou, Genie, Teupen, Skyjack, Multitel Pagliero, Holland Lift, Snorkel, Altrex, Imer, Power Towers, Oil & Steel, Haulotte, CTE, Bronto, Ruthmann, Time International, Riwal, Socage, Airo Tigieffe, Palfinger, Dinolift, Hinowa and Teupen.
Eight Chinese aerial platform manufacturers are also attending, which is a record for APEX and indicative of the recent growth in the Chinese aerial platform market.
Tony Kenter, Managing Director of show organiser Industrial Promotions International (I.P.I.), said; “It is very pleasing to completely sell out the indoor and outside areas of APEX 2017 a full five months before the event. We are anticipating one of the most successful APEX shows ever, helped by the improved buying climate that can now be seen in Europe’s access rental industry.
“Visitors to APEX, in addition to seeing over 85 exhibitors of access equipment, will also have the benefit of free access to the adjoining International Rental Exhibition (IRE), which is also now sold out. IRE will see more than 66 brands covering compact earthmoving equipment, gensets, rental software and much more, and represents an added bonus for APEX visitors.”
The first seven APEX shows took place at the MECC in Maastricht and in 2014 it moved to the RAI Exhibition Centre in Amsterdam.
APEX 2017 is organized by Industrial Promotions International BV (IPI) from Goor and is officially supported by the International Powered Access Federation (IPAF) and by Access International.
