10 & 11 MAY  2017    LONDON, UK

Conference success 2015

 

More than 225 delegates booked for the 2015 International Tower Crane (ITC) conference in London on 28 May.

 

ITC 2015 was held at the Millennium Gloucester Hotel in London's Kensington. It started with an evening reception on 27 May and then a full day conference and networking event on the 28th.

 

The conference included two round-table panels: one on tower crane foundation loads – and with presentations on new FEM and CIRIA guidelines – and a second on operator access for tower cranes.

 

Philippe Cohet, Arcomet chairman, used his keynote speech to investigate the value created in the tower crane market supply chain, and ask if the rewards fully reflect the technical complexity involved and the important part that tower cranes play on many projects.

 

Dave Holder, director and general manager of HTC Plant, consider how the industry can attract young talent, and Jean-Charles Delplace, business development manager at Trimble Navigation, looked at the management of cranes on ‘connected’ sites.

 

More stories from the event can be found on www.khl.com and a full write up will be available in the June issue of International Cranes and Specialized Transport magazine.
