IEE Expo & E2 Forum 2022

The 9th edition of International Elevator and Escalator Expo (IEE Expo) along with the E2 Forum will welcome real estate developers and builders to witness the latest technologies and trends in vertical transportation, and present opportunities in growing markets, from 16 -18 February 2022 at the Bombay Exhibition Centre, Mumbai

IEE Expo

The pandemic has induced drastic changes in the dynamics of elevator and escalator manufacturing, product designs, features, and control functions to suit the changing needs of the hygiene-conscious population. Developers must look at digitalised elevator technology for a safe and seamless passenger experience in the post-pandemic age.

Digitalisation is revolutionising the vertical mobility space, and with it the elevator business is transforming. As elevator manufacturers integrate new digital capabilities that create safe, seamless and contactless building experiences, developers today can provide exceptional passenger experience while at the same time keep their elevator maintenance and repairs at check.

Amid hygiene concerns and digitisation, remote monitoring services in elevators and escalators will gain traction in the post-Covid world, whereas new-age features such as a central dashboard, human flow predicting operation management systems, and rapid installation methods will allow seamless operations and monitoring and redefine the customer experience.
