The 6th European Lift Congress took place on 7th and 8th October 2014 in Stuttgart. The success of the event – proven by the participation of several qualified delegates, by the selected topics and the quality of speeches – is based on the concept of Gerhard Schiffner (congress chairman) and the organizational enthusiasm of Georg Clauss, professor at Heilbronn University (the congress historical venue).
