The Lift & Access Showcase and Symposium was held Oct. 24-25 in Orlando, FL, drawing a host of equipment suppliers who exhibited a varied selection of products to a collection of buyers including some of the biggest names in the rental industry. The event was located onsite at the Ritchie Bros. Auctioneers Orlando location, where a concurrent auction took place on Oct. 25.
Also occurring during the same week was the International Powered Access Federation (IPAF) annual U.S. Convention. The combination of the Lift and Access Showcase & Symposium, IPAF U.S. Convention and Ritchie Bros. auction resulted in a full week focused on the advancement of equipment technology, safety and training, as well as buying and selling.
Hosted by Maximum Capacity Media Events, along with event partners Ritchie Bros. Auctioneers and Rental Equipment Register magazine, the event also included a panel discussion on Tier 4 opportunities.
Known for its pageant-style equipment demonstrations, the Lift & Access Showcase provided a venue for leading manufacturers to highlight key features and benefits to models within the following categories: mega boom lifts, mega telehandlers and compact rough-terrain scissor lifts. Plus, for the first time, the showcase included equipment other than lifts with the inclusion of light towers. Rounding out the demonstrations, Terex also highlighted one model each from its compact track loader and skid steer lines.
