The Lifting Equipment Engineers Association (LEEA) has confirmed that LiftEx 2021 will be held in Bahrain on September 27-28, 2021, at the Gulf Hotel Bahrain and Convention Centre.

Ross Moloney, ceo of LEEA, said: “While we start 2021 with Covid-19 lockdown restrictions in many areas, the vaccine rollout is under way and we see autumn 2021 as a time when people will be ready to reconnect.

“Holding this year’s exhibition in Bahrain gives LEEA members a chance to meet with new customers and partners and we expect the 250 members in the Middle East to really support the show. We also hope that members from across the globe will attend. Bahrain offers a central location for the Middle East and good connections for visitors from Europe, Australasia, South East Asia and America, with the accommodation available onsite in the Gulf Hotel, where the event is being held.”

The show will return to the UK the following year, when it will be held in Aberdeen on October 5-6, 2022 at Aberdeen’s Event Complex in Scotland.

A standalone LEEA Awards dinner will take place later this year at the Grosvenor House Hotel in London, UK, on November 5, 2021.
