Expo year one

Expolift, a new access and lifting exhibition was held in Stockholm last Thursday and Friday, with a good few brands represented and plenty of product on show.

Sadly, the visitor numbers were well below expectations, although a few stands reported decent business and were busy. The vast majority of stands were in the exhibition hall of the Scandic Infra City hotel, although there was a small outside area which was absolutely packed with equipment.

The following is a pictorial overview of the event, as you will see there were some interesting new products that we will follow up with separately and in our publications.
