With a little over a week to go, there’s still time to book your spot for the fourth ALH Conference & Awards, set for Sept. 12 in San Diego. 

The final speaker has been added to the day’s program. Kevin Aylesworth, president of California-based All Access Rentals, will speak about the West Coast rental market at the fourth ALH Conference & Awards on Sept. 12 in San Diego. 

Aylesworth co-founded the rental business in 1999 after previously working with U.S. Rentals before its acquisition by United Rentals in 1998. All Access Rentals is one of the largest independent rental companies in Southern California with a fleet of scissor lifts, booms, telehandlers as well as industrial forklifts. Its head office is in San Diego and the company operates additional rental locations in Riverside and Orange County. 

The fourth Access, Lift & Handlers (ALH) Conference will have more speakers covering more topics than ever before.

A parallel-session format will allow industry experts to address a wide range of subjects, creating a one-day ‘masterclass’ for aerial platform rental professionals. Topics will include:
