SEPTEMBER | SYMPOSIUM ON LIFT AND ESCALATOR TECHNOLOGIES PROMISES HIGH CALIBER PAPERS

The 10th Symposium on Lift and Escalator Technologies kicks off on Wednesday 18, September and will run over two days in Northampton.

Regarded as one of the best educational symposiums for the global lift and escalator industry, next week's event will welcome in excess of 120 delegates from all over the world.

Symposium trustee and MD of LECS (UK), Dave Cooper said: “The two key success factors of the symposium are the incredibly high quality of the papers – as a result of peer reviewing - and the excellent value of the two day event.
