MCM Events Confirms CRC Canada 2012
MCM Events is delighted to announce that its second Crane & Rigging Conference (CRC) Canada will return to Edmonton, at the Sutton Place Hotel, Alberta, Canada, 13-14 Sept., 2012. The event is a partnership between Maximum Capacity Media (MCM), All Canadian Training Institute, and PEAK Inspection & Training. The inaugural CRC Canada opened to a standing room only crowd in September, 2011 at the nearby Fantasyland Hotel, where professionals from all the western provinces and many from the United States attended the two-day event. Most noteworthy was a strong contingent from the oil sands in Fort McMurray, Alberta. “We were very pleased with the inaugural event and positive feedback we received from a very passionate and engaged Canadian audience,” said MCM president Guy Ramsey. CRC Canada 2012 will feature a much anticipated update from last year’s panel, which discussed harmonization of regulations relevant to cranes and rigging with the other three Western provinces—British Columbia, Saskatchewan, and Manitoba—and possibly beyond. The event will again provide opportunities to improve the management of crane operations before, during, and after the lift. Fleet and facilities managers, safety leaders, operators and riggers, will participate in sessions to help users apply new regulations; evaluate and safely prepare the work environment; hone inspection skills; manage and maintain equipment; and learn from colleagues and competitors. The conference will focus on construction, mobile cranes, overhead cranes, hoists and rigging in British Columbia, Alberta, Saskatchewan and Manitoba; the North West Territories are addressing major growth in the oil, gas and mining sectors over the next 10 years. Breaks in the program will give delegates the opportunity to peruse an exhibit area featuring displays from a variety of vendors. Register prior to July 6, 2012 to receive the early bird rate of C$595. The rate will increase to C$695 on July 7, 2012.
