Biggest Vertikal Days Brings in Hundreds of End Users


While not official, it would seem that this year's Vertikal Days event may well be the largest gathering of cranes, access equipment, and telehandlers in Europe--even eclipsing the most recent Intermat trade show. Vertikal Days--the sixth and biggest yet--had more than 160 manufacturers or service providers represented, many launching new products to the market.


Most notably was the growing presence of cranes on hand from virtually every OEM. Liebherr, Manitowoc, Broderson, and Tadano/Faun were represented along with virtually every AWP and tele handler provider in Europe exhibiting a wide variety of products. Despite gloomy skies and intermittent rain, traffic on the opening day was brisk. Unoffically it was reported that in excess of 850 end users register to attend the event from all parts of the United Kingdom.


Vertikal Days is a two-day networking event for the lifting industry, with association and company meetings, seminars, and workshops.
