This year's European Lift Congress Heilbronn will deal with the challenges and chances the lift industry faces currently. It is held by the Technical Academy of Heilbronn on October 11 and 12, 2022.

Again the congress is supported ideally by the European Lift Association (ELA), the two German manufacturer associations VDMA and VFA and the association of technical supervisers VdTÜV.

Professor Dr. Wolfram Vogel, who took over the conception of the European Lift Congress, will open the congress and introduce the specialist subjects.
