Access International will host its second webinar: Access at a Turning Point on 5 November, 2020.
A panel of industry experts will focus on how trends in the expanding access sector, including new equipment markets and manufacturers, advancing technologies and revised standards will shape the market over the next five years, alongside the effects of Covid-19.
Speakers confirmed for the online event are:
- David McNicholas, CEO, AFI Group of Companies. McNicholas joined AFI in 2006 as group finance director, after 11 years with Deloitte UK where he was corporate finance director.
- Phil Graysmark, sales director Europe and Middle East, LGMG. Graysmark offers longstanding experience in the industry, having held senior positions at JCB Access and Genie. He is also a member of the IPAF council.
- George Landsberg, CEO, Hi-Reach Manlift, South Africa. Landsberg has more than 20 years experience at CEO level in the mature South African access rental sector and is serving chairman of the MEWP Chamber for the country’s work at height association.
Before Covid-19 struck, the access equipment industry was already in a state of change and expansion, thanks to new and emerging markets, continued mergers and acquisitions in mature markets, a raft of new entrants in the manufacturing sector and a significant shift towards hybrid and electic-powered equipment. Now that the Covid-19 pandemic has created an additional set of industry challenges, the panellist will discuss how the global MEWP landscape will evolve.
