Crane & Rigging / Industrial Crane & Hoist Conferences - May 23-24

CRC / ICHC 2012

Join Bishop Lifting Products at the Crane & Rigging / Industrial Crane & Hoist Conferences!

The jointly-held Crane & Rigging Conference and Industrial Crane & Hoist Conference (CRC/ICHC), hosted by MCM Events, moves to a new venue in 2012. The two-day safety management conference will be held May 23-24, 2012 in New Orleans, La.

The two-day conference is geared for safety managers, crane and rigging supervisors, plant managers, and risk management personnel. New this year, attendees can choose from two educational tracts. ICHC sessions will discuss topics relevant to users of overhead cranes inside plants or heavy industrial environments. CRC sessions will be of interest to users of mobile and tower cranes working in construction environments. In addition, several joint sessions focusing on training techniques, accident trends, and rigging inspection and proper use promise something for everyone.

BLP will be exhibiting and invite everyone to attend this great conference series.  Salespeople from our New Orleans and Houston branches will be present.
