We’re excited to announce that we will be attending the Tower Cranes North America (TCNA) conference in Miami, Florida next week. The conference takes place June 21st and 22nd, and is organized by the KHL group and its magazines American Cranes & Transport and International Cranes and Specialized Transport. What’s even better, event partner Specialized Carriers & Rigging Association (SC&RA) is offering its members a 20% discount on registration for the conference.
TCNA is a can’t-miss event for anyone connected to the tower crane industry: tower crane owners, rental companies, contractors, crane dealers, crane manufacturers, and regulatory authorities will all find value from the two-day long conference. The event will cover everything from trends in tower crane technology, regulations concerning tower cranes, rental management, tower crane safety, new applications for tower cranes, and more.
The event will be held at the Marriott Biscayne Bay, and kicks off on June 21st at 6:30 PM for an evening networking program in the Grand Ballroom. The second day is full of speakers and events, and kicks off bright and early at 8:00 AM. Some of the highlights from the second day include:
- Keynote Address by Aaron Ravenscroft, president and CEO of The Manitowoc Company, Inc., titled “Electrification of America”
- Jim Wiethorn, engineering specialist, founder, and chairman of International Crane & Construction Safety Solutions, will present on “Understanding Wind Loadings on Tower Cranes”
- Lior Avitan, CEO & co-founder of UltraWis, will discuss “Tower Cranes and the Connected Worksite”
These are just a few of more than a dozen specialized talks all aimed at addressing key issues facing tower crane owners and users in North America, including risk mitigation, safety, crane inspections, crane rental business cycles, and construction activity forecasts.
As we said before, NBIS will be attending this conference, so if you see us there, be sure to stop by and say hello! Crane and rigging insurance is the backbone of our business at NBIS, so we wouldn’t miss this for the world. Staying up-to-date on the latest trends and concerns facing the tower crane industry makes us better prepared to serve our insureds. We hope to see you there.
