Stay ahead of the curve at LiftEx Regional in Sydney

LiftEx Regional takes place over two days on 24th & 25th May 2023, at the Australian National Maritime Museum in Sydney. The first ever event for LEEA (Lifting Equipment Engineers Association) in the Australia and New Zealand region will provide a unique opportunity for professionals and enthusiasts to network, learn and discover new opportunities in the constantly evolving Lifting Industry.

Featuring the latest thinking and expert speakers from local industry and abroad, the conference-led event, with a supporting expo, will examine the future by addressing complex issues relating to staffing, compliance and business practices.

Charles Brass, a leading Futurist in Australia, and a regular commentator on the future in print and on radio and TV, will deliver the keynote presentation. As the Chairman of the Futures Foundation, the professional association for Australia’s practicing futurists, Charles is ideally placed to identify the forces and trends shaping Australia’s future.

This will set the agenda for content on Day 1 of LiftEx Regional, which will focus on the future of lifting, examining how automation and technology will affect the industry, together with acquiring and retaining the future workforce, and sustainability.

Growth in mining, oil & gas, construction and infrastructure projects – in addition to greater safety requirements – are resulting in the development of new and improved devices and technologies. They will service a growing demand for heavier, more complex lifts and a reduced number of cycles with a view to gain further efficiency.

‘Smart’ embedded technologies help prevent accidents, optimise lift efficiency, and reduce unforeseen maintenance and service costs. Other advances include additive manufacturing, 3D printing, non-destructive testing, intelligent lifting devices feeding back real-time data to operators, as well as augmented and virtual reality as a genuine tool in our industry for training and inspections.

How quickly we can expect to see these advanced technologies become mainstream will be addressed at the event, which will also ask questions such as do we have the required workforce? And what does a lifting equipment testing, inspection and certification professional of 2030 or 2035 look like?

Suppliers featuring in the expo include manufacturer of steel cable Andromeda Industries, chain manufacturer pewag, and wire rope, lifting and rigging specialist Unilift.

On the evening of Day 1 there will be a networking drinks reception overlooking Darling Harbour for all attendees, sponsored by materials handling specialist Pacific Hoists. Day 2, which is morning only, will focus on member-led content and important regional LEEA announcements, which will be first heard at the event.

The future-looking LiftEx Regional event in Sydney provides a unique opportunity for professionals and enthusiasts to network, say ahead of the curve and learn about the latest trends and innovations in the industry.
