A Review of LiftEx 2022

LiftEx, the flagship event of the Lifting Equipment Engineers Association (LEEA), took place from 5th to 6th October at P&J Live in Aberdeen – one of the UK’s principal centres for the oil and gas indutries.

Celebrating some of the industry’s most notable successes, the event provided a one-stop shop to find services, products as well as to gain the latest lifting related knowledge and insights no matter what the sector. P&J Live also hosted the fourth annual LEEA Awards Ceremony – which is otherwise known as the ‘party of the year’ on the evening of 5th October.

LEEA CEO, Ross Moloney, comments: “The responses we have received have been overwhelmingly positive. I would like to express my gratitude to the exhibitors, sponsors RRS Group and Royal Van Beest, the LEEA Board, our speakers, the hard working LEEA team for bringing the entire event together and all the visitors who attended for making LiftEx 2022 in Aberdeen such a success. Together, we represent a truly astounding global industry that wins the battle with gravity on a daily basis.”

LiftEx 2022 was the association’s 17th exhibition and the first after the pandemic lockdowns. The exhibition floor was packed with major lifting suppliers. “It was great to see attendees from multiple markets meeting LEEA members to discuss ways they can help achieve best lifting practice, as well as gaining vital lifting related knowledge and insights from our programme of speaker sessions, delivered by the LEEA team and industry experts.”

A positive and rewarding aspects of this year’s event was the LiftEx Industry Careers Day which took place on 6th October. Organised with TechFest, a local specialist in the promotion of STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) subjects and Developing the Young Workforce (DYW) – alongside other organisations that make it easier for employers to connect with students in schools and colleges across Scotland, the event was attended by senior pupils aged 16 to 18, their teachers, and other attendees with an interest in learning more about careers’ opportunities that are available in the lifting industry.

Participants were able to gain career information, advice and guidance session for the students. Speakers from industry and partners from universities and the military introduced the students to learning opportunities and career routes. And after trying the interactive experiments, which are part of LEEA’s Think Lifting programme, the students explored the show hall to meet the exhibitors.
