Amsterdam RAI Convention Centre


APEX will return to Amsterdam in 2017 following the success of the previous event in 2014, when the show switched to Amsterdam for the first time. The first seven APEX exhibitions were all held in Maastricht.

The ninth APEX aerial platform exhibition will take place on May 2 – 4, 2017 and will again be co-located with the International Rental Exhibition (IRE) and the European Rental Association's annual Convention. As in 2014, visitors will be free to move between the two exhibitions.

The switch to the Amsterdam RAI venue proved successful, offering exhibitors and visitors a larger, more modern venue as well as one that is more accessible from around the world. The result was growth in the number of international visitors (from around 55 different countries). The new venue also allowed the APEX organisers to offer a larger outside exhibition area located directly in front of the centre.

Among the more than 100 manufacturers and suppliers from all over the world there was a resoundingly positive response to the RAI Amsterdam venue, with good visitor numbers and a busy feel to the event. More than 4400 people attended the eighth edition of APEX with the numbers rising to 5500 when visitors to the neighbouring International Rental Exhibition (IRE) are included. 

APEX is the undisputed global forum for the access equipment community. Participating in the triennial show will put your company in front of thousands of key decision makers with the power to grow your business today, tomorrow and for many years ahead.

The aerial platform industry is a truly global market, and APEX will be its key meeting place in 2017!
