“Whilst there has always been considerable interest in the event from both global and local vendors, it has become clear that – mostly for reasons due to the global pandemic – there is not enough commitment to make this a viable event at this current time,” according to the event organiser, the Lifting Equipment Engineers Association (LEEA).

LEEA aims to have a member meeting in Bahrain in 2022, and a LiftEx Middle East event during 2023 at a new location.

The LiftEx Exhibition in the UK is still scheduled to take place at P&J Live, Aberdeen on October 5-6, 2022. The fourth annual LEEA Awards wil take place on October 5.
