DIN EN 81-76 draft published
The draft of DIN EN 81-76 has been published (Evacuation of persons with disabilities using lifts). The standard is harmonised under the Lifts Directive.
Messe Frankfurt India announced that it has secured fresh dates and a new venue for the International Elevator and Escalator Expo (IEE Expo) in Mumbai.
The trade show will take place from 6 – 8 September 2022 at JIO World Convention Centre (JWCC). The surge in Omicron cases across the globe as well as in India, together with regulatory guidelines in the state of Maharashtra has led the organiser to review and reschedule the show dates in the collective interest of its exhibitors, visitors and industry partners.
Messe Frankfurt India’s Managing Director, Mr Raj Manek says: “Keeping in mind the current developments, we believe that rescheduling the show will create a healthy business environment while offering exhibitors additional time to plan with certainty, creating confidence for business. It is a difficult but responsible decision for the collective interest.”
Alongside the trade fair, the organisers will also host the E2 Forum which put together along with L’Avenir Elevator Consultancy as the Knowledge Partner. According to the organisers, the forum will take up key topics targeting global and Indian elevator and escalator market scenario and latest trends, real estate and infrastructure industry.
Opportunities, challenges and solutions, latest safety codes and standards for escalator and elevator industry, modernisation in escalators and elevators in Indian market and use of elevators for emergency evacuation in high-rise buildings among others during its run alongside the fair.
