After what will be 28 long months since the last Vertikal Days event, there is a very positive vibe in the air from the UK crane, access and telehandler fraternity looking forward to catching up in late September at our new venue, the East of England Arena & Showground in Peterborough.
Taking place on September 22nd and 23rd Vertikal Days will be one of the first events in the UK since it ‘lockdowned’ in March 2020. It will also be the first outing for a host of new products, with visitors treated to a good number of World, European and UK ‘firsts’ from the crane, access platform and telehandler manufacturers, plus an abundance of new ancillary products and services in the Marketplace.
The show is the largest event in Europe dedicated solely to the lifting and working at height industry, and a perfect opportunity for rental companies, utilities, major contractors, and a plethora of end users who visit the show to see and hear about the latest developments on hand and ‘in the iron’. Staying true to its roots, visitors will also benefit from everything being complimentary, from parking and entry, through to refreshments and catering.
Located centrally within the showground, the Marketplace Pavilion is almost a show within a show, andwill include an even more comprehensive mix of companies displaying the very latest in ancillary products and services related to cranes, access equipment and telehandlers, such as safety equipment, software, innovative components, rigging solutions, training suppliers, financial solutions and electronics. It will also feature the main café serving complimentary tea, coffee and soft drinks all day – a great place to network or simply sit for 10 minutes to digest not only the pastries, but the host of equipment and services on offer.
