European elevator industry meets in London in 2019
The European Lift Association (ELA) announced that its General Assembly and Annual Conference will be held in London, UK, 13th-14th May 2019. The event attracts over 100 senior industry representatives.
The 2019 event will be co-organised and hosted by LEIA, the UK’s Lift and Escalator Industry Association, and will precede LEIA’s triennial trade show – Liftex (15th-16th May). Liftex is the only dedicated exhibition for the lift, escalator and access industry to be held in the UK.
Application of common standards
ELA’s new President, Roberto Zappa said: "The ELA Board very much welcomed the proposal from LEIA and voted unanimously in favour of LEIA hosting the 2019 ELA General Assembly and Annual Conference – the first time the event will be hosted in the UK."
Warren Jenchner, LEIA’s President said: "I am delighted that LEIA has received the backing of our European colleagues to host the 2019 ELA General Assembly and Annual Conference in London. 2019 will see increasing focus on the UK as its relationship with the EU moves into a new era."
Both LEIA and ELA firmly believe that no matter what post-Brexit uncertainties there may be, the Lifts Sector in both the UK and Europe as a whole will remain committed to preserving safety for installers and users under the application of common standards.
