Back by popular demand The PLASA Rigging Conference returns for a third time on the 10 and 11 September 2012. The 2-day international event creates an annual opportunity for the global rigging community to discuss ideas, for the appraisal of new developments and to review progress of initiatives and projects. In 2011, the combined muscle of industry heavyweights, manufacturers, engineers and safety professionals challenged accepted thinking and dispelled several industry myths. This year will again provide an occasion to debate issues and continue the process of developing this still relatively new industry sector.
Who should attend?
The conference is unique in being the only annual meeting of its size dedicated solely to the rigging community. It brings together practitioners, managers, engineers, safety professionals and policy makers to exchange information and inspire new research, curriculum building and professional development. Over 200 delegates from 30 countries are expected to take part this year so there is no better place to come together with your peers from the global rigging community.

'Iconic' is an often overused and sometimes devalued term but in Roy Bickel's case it is difficult to find a more fitting description. From the very beginnings of rigging becoming a recognised and identifiable industry, Roy has been one of the key proponents of the rigging community. His presence as our Keynote Speaker lends a certain gravitas to the opening of the 3rd Annual Rigging Conference.
A packed programme of sessions is now confirmed for the 3rd annual PLASA Rigging Conference at the Earls Court Conference Centre in London on Monday 10 and Tuesday 11 September 2012.
The Riggers' Forum will take place once again on the Sunday afternoon prior to the conference, 9 September 2012.

Topics of discussion will be announced soon, so watch this space for more info...
