2019 Specialized Carriers & Rigging Association’s Annual Conference Recap
The Specialized Carriers & Rigging Association’s Annual Conference last week saw 800 people descend on Carlsbad, CA for networking events, educational sessions, a product fair featuring some of the crane & rigging industries latest products, and beautiful views.
Fleet Cost & Care would like to thank all of the hardworking staff members of the SC&RA who put on an amazing event.
The opening day of the 2019 Specialized Carriers & Rigging Association’s Annual Conference concluded with the President’s Reception at the picturesque Omni La Costa Resort & Spa. Attendees were treated to a live graffiti show as an artist spray-painted logos of the events sponsors – Manitowoc, Tadano, Demag, Terex, Liebherr, and Kobelco.
As always the conference offered industry centered educational sessions as well as motivational stories and some comedy. During the opening session attendees were treated to a moving and motivational presentation by founder and CEO of Nuru International, Jake Harriman. Jake, a former marine, told the audience how his experience fighting poverty in Africa taught him to empower leaders and develop new solutions to old problems.
Fleet Cost & Care Director of Marketing, Jane Intrieri, never missed an opportunity to inform fellow SC&RA members of our innovative technology solutions or to take a selfie with staff members Jack Curran, Taylor Harmeyer, and Matt Reinhart.
It wouldn’t be the SC&RA Annual Conference without the Product Fair. This year’s product fair featured 92 booths occupied by vendors whose products and services covered all aspects of the crane, rigging, and specialized transportation industry. The Fleet Cost & Care booth was a beacon of light (literally and figuratively) to attendees interested investing in fleet management technology and more importantly – in their company’s future. We appreciate all of our customers who stopped by as well as members of other crane companies who took some time to learn about what we do!
It also wouldn’t be SC&RA conference without spending some time with our customers, friends, and partners surrounded by good food and drink – away from the conference halls. Thanks for the people at Crane Network, Precision Crane Rental, Imperial Crane Service, and Mammoet, Irving Equipment, Clark Rigging & Rental, and JJ Curran Crane for a few enjoyable nights out.
We had a great time at the event like we do every year. It is extremely satisfying to get in front of people in our industry, to build relationships, form new ones, showcase our products, and to hear what we are doing right and what we can improve on.
Looking forward to the SC&RA’s Crane & Rigging Workshop in September!
