The second Europlatform acces conference will focus on how to be 'The Access Rental Company of the Future'

Christoph Schneiderbauer, managing director of Palfinger Europe, is the latest speaker to be confirmed for the Europlatform conference in Maastricht, The Netherlands, on 16 September, the day before the APEX exhibition.

Palfinger has just acquired the Wumag aerial platform manufacturing business in Europe, and Mr Schneiderbauer will discuss the growth potential Palfinger sees in the truck mounted sector and opportunities for rental companies to place more emphasis on vehicle mounted platforms.

The theme of the conference is ‘The rental company of the future'. Co-organised by Access International and the International Powered Access Federation (IPAF), the conference will reveal new research into the European access rental market, consider the long-term potential for the business in Europe, and why it can benefit rental companies to become ‘ethical' players.

It will also address the latest thinking in fleet and rental management, including telematics/remote control systems, the latest trends in rental company financing and advice on managing rapid growth.

The conference is being sponsored by Haulotte Group (Gold Sponsor and Sponsor of the evening reception) and by Genie Industries (Silver Sponsor) and Skyjack (Silver Sponsor).

Book your place before the end of August and you will save 10% on the price. See for details and to book online. The website also provides full details of the conference programme.

The conference is being held at the Grand Hotel de l'Empereur, opposite Maastricht's main railway station and within walking distance of the town centre. The event includes an evening reception after the conference closes.

Attendees will be able to combine the Europlatform conference with a visit to the APEX exhibition, taking place at the Maastricht Exhibition and Congress Centre (MECC) in Maastricht on 17-19 September. The APEX show is already sold out, with over 110 equipment suppliers attending. See for full details.
