Among suppliers at APEX will be Dingli, Genie, JLG, Haulotte, Manitou, Ruthmann, Skyjack, Snorkel and XCMG.
IRE and APEX 2023 will be co-located with the European Rental Association Convention, including the European Rental Awards on 7 June.
The two shows were last held in 2017, having been cancelled in 2020 and 2021 because of the pandemic.
They exhibitors at the two shows will provide rental companies with a complete line up of compact construction equipment, aerial platforms and rental IT solutions. Many companies will display their latest battery powered equipment and tools.
Tony Kenter, Managing Director of Industrial Promotions International B.V (IPI), which is organising the exhibitions alongside KHL Group, said the shows’ programme and format were timely in light of current global challenges.
“The shows will help rental companies and contractors who are managing the transition to low-emission equipment.
“At one convenient location, APEX and IRE will give equipment buyers the perfect snapshot of what is available.
“At the same time, IRE will showcase the latest digital technology, including telematics solutions and rental management software, that are becoming essential tools for today’s rental companies and contractors.”
