Michael Kneeland, president and CEO, of United Rentals will be speaking at the IPAF Summit on the subject "Rental Giants Fight Back".

Mr Kneeland will deliver straightforward strategies for rental companies and observations on the differences between the US and European markets. United Rentals is one of the largest construction equipment rental companies in the world and regularly tops Access International's Access 50 list of the world's largest access rental companies.

Following Mr Kneeland there is plenty of other food for thought from speakers which include: IPAF's president and Height for Hire's managing director, John Ball; Scott Hazelton the senior principal director of Global Insight's, construction services, business and planning strategy; Kevin O'Shea, chairman of IPAF's international MCWP committee and safety and training director for Mastclimbers and Access International's Editor, Maria Hadlow.

Held this year in Dublin on 2 April, the Summit is also the occasion of the inaugural IAPA (International Awards for Powered Access) event, organised jointly by Access International and IPAF. The awards will be presented at the dinner, during, what promises to be, an entertaining evening.
