Great line up at Europlatform

By Maria Hadlow19 June 2012

The programme for this year's Europlatform rental conference is nearly complete and once again Access International and IPAF have lined up a terrific group of speakers and topics.

The theme of the conference is Success in Access Rentals and this year it takes place on Thursday 20 September in Edinburgh, Scotland at the Radisson Blu Hotel. If you book before 15 July you can benefit from a much reduced "early-bird" rate and you need not confirm the names of your delegates until much nearer the conference.

The conference is held in English but there will be simultaneous translation into German, Italian and Spanish.

We are delighted to announce that, once again, JLG has decided to sponsor the conference and Haulotte is sponsoring the networking event held the evening before at the Scottish Whisky Experience.

The Europlatform conference is always thought provoking and challenging and will definitely provide you with some interesting ideas to take back to your company. There is also plenty of opportunity for discussion with the speakers and your fellow delegates in an informal setting.
