International Tower Cranes 2011 conference starts
By Euan Youdale12 May 2011
The International Tower Cranes 2011 conference (London, May 12) has got off to a successful start this morning as industry professionals gathered from around the world in London, UK to discuss the latest issues and regulations affecting the industry.
A central focus of the conference is on operating standards and how the global industry can continue to improve health and safety, and efficient working.
Another topic is the continued requirements for preventative maintenance through real time electronic monitoring.
This is all in light of a unique global economic situation in which emerging nations have seen massive growth as western economies have battled against long term recession.
Presentations from industry experts will continue throughout the day.
The International Tower Cranes 2011 (ITC 2011) conference is organised by KHL Group and International Cranes and Specialized Transport magazine.
Look out for further reports from the conference and tonight's dinner on the International Cranes and Specialized Transport magazine website.
