Dates Set for CRC Canada Return

January 28, 2014 0 Comments

Exhibitors, speakers and sponsors are already committed to the Crane & Rigging Conference (CRC) Canada 2014, when it returns in October to Edmonton, Alberta. Now in its fourth year, the event will stay at the location of the 2013 conference, which received rave reviews from attendees.

CRC Canada 2014 will be supported by Industrial Training International (ITI) Canada ULC (Event Partner); Liebherr-Canada Ltd. (Associate Sponsor); and Crane & Hoist Canada (Media Partner). Additionally, organizer MCM Group LLC.  has confirmed that the Canadian Hoisting & Rigging Safety Council (CHRSC) will again participate as a Supporting Organization.

The CHRSC made its first public appearance at CRC Canada 2012. The group has since become a governmentrecognized,
independent, industry-represented group and, having updated attendees on the progress of early initiatives at last year’s event, will again sit before the conference as a panel and take questions at the end of the session.

Headline speakers will include Knut Buschmann, president, Unirope Ltd. (left) and Mike Parnell, president and CEO, ITI Canada ULC (right).

Other headline speakers will include Mike Parnell, president and CEO, ITI Canada ULC; and Knut Buschmann, president, Unirope Ltd. Mark Bridger, director of business development at MCM Group, said, “Given widespread positive feedback from speakers, sponsors, exhibitors and, most importantly, attendees, we had no hesitation in returning to the Marriott at River Cree Resort.”He added: “In the longer term, we still see the conference expanding into other regions of Canada, but we have a footprint in Edmonton, Alberta, and we want to finish what we started in 2011. The conference has facilitated so
much positive change, but there is a long way to go.”

Beverly Plumb, manager of workplace development at Capital Power Corporation’s Genesee Generating Station in Alberta, said she was impressed by the passion and rigor of the presentations at last year’s event. Hany Tadrus, business development director in Toronto and a partner with Egypt-based Petrolift, said the conference provided a lot of useful
information and was well organized. Meanwhile, Adam Tellier, general manager of Super Slings Inc., Nisku, Alberta, singled out the workshops as event highlights.

The next installment of the two-day conference will again address crane and rigging supervisors, facilities managers, and safety personnel. Overhead cranes, critical lifting, rigging, standards, competency, and training will be among key topics.
