In September 2021 the APEX-show is returning to its original home in Maastricht, The Netherlands, following two editions in Amsterdam.

A return to the Amsterdam RAI in 2021 was not possible on dates that would have been suitable or acceptable for the industry. For that reason, the show will return to the MECC in Maastricht, where the first seven APEX shows were held. APEX will return to its roots, but now with added benefits.

MECC has invested heavily in its facilities in recent years, including an enlarged outside area, which will provide increased and better space for exhibitors to display their equipment. This new area is located in front of the modernized main entrance to MECC and is directly linked to the indoor APEX space.

In addition, APEX and the International Rental Exhibition (IRE) will be the sole exhibitions being staged at the MECC in June 2021 – rather than being one show among many at RAI. That will make logistics for both exhibitors and visitors much simpler.

As in previous years, APEX will be held alongside the IRE show and the European Rental Association’s annual convention, bringing important rental buyers to the show.

Maastricht was a popular host city for APEX, providing opportunities for business events and relaxed networking in a compact, manageable location. And these possibilities have only improved in recent years. With the famous Château Neercanne still being one of the most inspiring eye-catchers.

APEX is the undisputed global forum for the access equipment community and the 10th edition takes place on 15, 16 and 17 June 2021. It will be a showcase for all that is new in the industry.

The International Rental Exhibition (IRE) and the European Rental Association’s annual Convention, will again be co-located with APEX. Visitors will be free to move between the two exhibitions.
