Industry meeting place
By Richard High13 August 2008
The APEX 2008 Exhibition, held in Maastricht, the Netherlands from 17 to 19 September, will be the largest ever. The 2008 show, supported by IPAF (International Powered Access Federation) and Access International magazine, is the world's largest, dedicated powered access exhibition and conference. It has attracted over 100 of the world's most important access manufacturers as exhibitors.
APEX provides you with the opportunity to talk to most of the major manufacturers from all over the world. You can compare products, discus your requirements with the experts and pick up information on standards, safety and software without the distractions created by cranes, diggers and crushers you might find at other shows.
This is the sixth APEX and will be the largest in the event's history, you can expect to see new machine launches and some exciting first time exhibitors from Japan and China. All the big names will be there, but the presence of the smaller manufacturers showing a huge range of specialist access equipment is always a big draw, as is the attendance of rental companies and component suppliers.
To wring every opportunity out of the APEX experience be sure to check out the free seminar programme, which runs during the show and book to attend the Europlatform Conference www.europlatforms.info which is held on the preceding day Tuesday 16 September.
