Don't miss the early-bird deadline for Europlatform

03 July 2012

The first early booking deadline for the Europlatform rental conference is approaching. If you book before 15 July you can save as much as £125 (€155) per delegate. Don't worry if you haven't finalised your delegate list as names can be changed right up to the day of the conference. If you do over book you can also cancel free of charge up to 1 August.

The theme of the conference is Success in Access Rentals and this year it takes place on Thursday 20 September in Edinburgh, Scotland at the Radisson Blu Hotel. The conference is held in English but there will be simultaneous translation into German, Italian and Spanish.

We are delighted to announce that, once again, JLG has decided to sponsor the conference and Haulotte is sponsoring the networking event held the evening before at the Scottish Whisky Experience.

The Europlatform conference is always thought provoking and challenging and will definitely provide you with some interesting ideas to take back to your company. There is also plenty of opportunity for discussion with the speakers and your fellow delegates in an informal setting.
