MCM Events Confirms Dates for CRC Canada 2012

MCM Events’ second Crane & Rigging Conference (CRC) Canada will return to Edmonton, Canada, at the Sutton Place Hotel in Alberta, Sept. 13-14, 2012. The event is a partnership between Maximum Capacity Media (MCM), All Canadian Training Institute, and Kolo Safety Inc.

The inaugural CRC Canada opened to a standing room only crowd in October 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  Mawork 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.

Early-bird registration is C$595 and includes breakfast and lunch both days. The deadline to receive this rate is July 6, 2012.
