The PLASA Rigging Conference returns this year on 7 & 8 October, running alongside the PLASA London 2013 show at its new home, ExCeL London. This international event is unique in being the only annual meeting of its size dedicated solely to the rigging community, bringing together over 200 practitioners, managers, engineers, safety professionals and policy makers from around the globe to exchange information and inspire new research. This year’s key-note address is by one of the rigging industry’s leading practitioners. A light-hearted account of his long career will act as a vehicle to illustrate the challenges and rewards of working as a rigger.
Contributors from all over the world will be presenting on a wide range of subjects including host control systems, structural design and standards. There will be an update on discussions held last year and the involvement of both the European and National Arenas Association demonstrate how widely recognised the event has become in providing an annual opportunity to confer about rigging standards, codes of practice and safe work at height.
The programme will form 2 distinct streams for the first time this year with Day 1 focussing on rigging and Day 2 on structures. Delegates are able to book individual days or for the 2-day duration. Early booking discounts are available, so book now to secure your place. For a full list of rates and other details, click here.
