The Crane & Rigging Expo (www.craneriggingexpo.com) will be held June 23-24, 2016 at Barnhart Crane & Rigging Headquarters and the ITI Memphis co-located Training Center. Global industry professionals and media are now able to sign up to attend the highly anticipated expo, which will be highlighted by Barnhart's specialized engineered load handling equipment demonstrations and hands-on ITI crane and rigging workshops workshops.
The Expo will feature over 15 demonstrations and workshops for participants including:
Zack Parnell, President of ITI, on how this event came into being: "The idea for the Expo was hatched a few years ago between the Barnhart and ITI teams, it just never seemed feasible due to the immense cost of mobilizing all of Barnhart's equipment. Fortunately, this year, the Electric Power Research Institute (www.epri.com) decided to host their Hoisting, Rigging & Crane User Group Meeting at our joint Training Center - so we felt that with that private event being held on June 21-22, we would host a public event the following two days while the equipment and people were mobilized. For the crane, rigging and transport enthusiast, this is likely the most exciting event to be able to attend in history. When else could you view some of the most incredible engineered load handling equipment, in action, by one of the best in the business?"
The Crane & Rigging Expo will provide the ultimate opportunity to participate in live demonstration of Barnhart engineered equipment and ITI Training Center Hands-On Workshops.
Barnhart (barnhartcrane.com) was founded in 1969 in Memphis, Tennessee, as a small family-owned business. While we are still a family-run company Barnhart has grown to be one of the largest Heavy Lift and Heavy Transport organization in the United States with more than 40 locations across the country and a nationwide reputation for solving problems. Barnhart provides world-class service through a local presence. Operated crane rental, rigging services, outage planning, specialized solutions for component replacement, industrial storage and national project cargo logistics all combine to ensure Barnhart's customers receive the lowest total project cost. Barnhart also boasts one of the largest engineering teams in the industry including a full R&D department driving innovation across all services.
Over the past 30 years, ITI (iti.com) has become recognized by customers and competitors alike as having an innovative and pioneering attitude toward training, and for having raised the current levels of instruction for cranes, rigging, and load handling activities. ITI's personal belief is that people have a greatly increased chance of retention by "seeing, speaking and doing" all at the same time.
