Leading mobile crane and specialized transport companies are being invited to celebrate their success by entering what is expected to be the biggest-ever ESTA Awards of Excellence.
The awards ceremony and dinner will be at the Hilton Munich Park Hotel in Munich, Germany on Thursday 22 April 2010, during the Bauma exhibition.
The 2009 event - dubbed the "largest crane and heavy haulage party in Europe" - took place in April in Paris during the Intermat exhibition. It attracted more than 450 senior guests from 14 countries and three continents.
The awards dinner is jointly run by ESTA and International Cranes and Specialized Transport magazine. ESTA (European Association of Heavy Haulage, Transport and Mobile Cranes) is the pan-European association for national trade associations representing mobile crane rental, heavy haulage and abnormal load transport companies.
The 2009 winners included JJ Kraner of Denmark, Sarens from Belgium, STDR-TEDL of France, Fagioli from Italy and Ainscough Crane Hire from the UK.
The deadline for entries to the 2010 awards is 5 January. Entry forms can be downloaded from the web sites of ESTA www.esta-eu.org or International Cranes and Specialized Transport www.khl.com/events, or from the ESTA Secretariat.
