Organized by KHL Group’s Access, Lift & Handlers magazine, the evening promises to be a fantastic networking event and a great opportunity to recognize our industry. At the last ALH Conference & Awards in 2017, more than 200 attendees were present to celebrate the best people, projects, safety, equipment.

We would like to thank our first sponsor, Skyjack, which has confirmed it will once again “go Gold” for the 2019 event. This is the first time the Conference & Awards will be hosted on the West Coast.
