Friday, February 17, 2012

His CRC/ICHC keynote will focus on the economy and implications forward for the construction and industrial crane markets.

Later that morning, delegates will split into breakout sessions. Four joint sessions and multiple breakout sessions during the two-day event will offer management-level topics of interest to crane and rigging supervisors, facilities managers, and safety personnel.
