Tower crane conference now in October

By Murray Pollok27 March 2020

The Tower Cranes North America (TCNA) conference has been moved from its original June date to 22 October 2020 and the host city will now be Chicago, Illinois, rather than Miami, Florida.

It was becoming increasingly clear that the June date offered no certainty that the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic would be sufficiently reduced to allow the event to continue.


The shift to Chicago reflects the availability of an appropriate hotel on dates that worked for stakeholders. The conference will be held at the Loews Chicago O’Hare Hotel in Rosemont, close to O’Hare airport.

The vast majority of speakers who were confirmed for the event in June, including keynote speaker Mike Heacock at Manitowoc, have recommitted to the Chicago dates. For more information, see:

We thank sponsors, delegates and speakers for their patience and understanding.

TCNA is organised by KHL Group in exclusive partnership with SC&RA. The supporting magazines are American Cranes & Transport (ACT) and International Cranes and Specialized Transport.
