The Lifting Equipment Engineers Association (LEEA) has decided to postpone LiftEx Bahrain until 2022 as a result of the ongoing uncertainty around Covid-19.

The event was scheduled to take place from September 27-28, 2021 but will now be held from March 21-22, 2022, at the Gulf Hotel and Convention Centre in Manama, Bahrain.

Ross Moloney, ceo of LEEA, said: “As the situation is still somewhat unclear due to the pandemic, with international travel restrictions currently in place, and some organisations putting a hold on employees travel until the end of the year, we are concerned that running LiftEx this year will affect the results for our exhibitors and compromise the success of the event.”

Current exhibitors can transfer their booking to the new March dates, or can cancel their participation without a penalty.
