The 1st International Ascen.tec exhibition for elevator technologies was deemed a success by organizers Technoekdotiki/T-Press. Taking place on May 10-12 at the Mediterranean Exhibition Center in Paiania, Greece, it had “massive” attendance “from all over the country.” Alongside the exhibition, a forum covered many elevator-sector topics.

The organizers added that this was the first time in more than 10 years that a fully specialized exhibition for the elevator industry was held in the country. Representatives of manufacturers, certification bodies, importers and dealers met with lift installers and maintainers, homeowners, building manufacturers, civil engineers, architects and representatives of municipalities and public organizations. An accompanying forum covered many elevator sector topics.

Many exhibitors said they would return next year, as preparations for the next iteration have already begun for a May 22-24, 2020, show taking place at the same locale. For more information, visit
