It’s for everyone who’s involved in the mobile access tower industry. This includes anyone who works for a PASMA member organisation (no matter your role!) as well as those who buy or source towers for their organisation, employ or manage tower users, and health and safety professionals. When you’ve registered, you’ll be able to download our event app and see who else is attending.
Yes! If you know someone whose job involves scaffold towers, please let them know about PASMA Conference 2019. We’re keen for the whole tower industry to be represented at the event, so if you’ve got a client who’d be interested in seeing how versatile towers are, a friend who manages building projects or a colleague responsible for the health and safety of tower users, invite them to join you at the conference. They can learn more and book their ticket at pasma.co.uk/conference. We’ve got some images and text that you (or your marketing people) can use to help spread the word – download here.
You can expect a lively programme of talks from expert speakers across two stages, information stands where you can meet PASMA staff, learn about opportunities that are open to you (such as how to become more involved with PASMA or how to become a Lead Instructor) and take a walk down memory lane by exploring the PASMA Archive. There will also be an outdoor courtyard where some of our Hire & Assembly and Manufacturing members will be showcasing their towers. We’ll take a break for a three-course buffet lunch (free of charge) and you’ll have the chance to network with your industry peers throughout the day. We’ll be releasing more details as we get closer to the time.
It’s the Forest of Arden Marriott Hotel and Country Club. It’s in Coventry but not far from Birmingham. The address is Maxstoke Lane, Meriden, Coventry, CV7 7HR. Check out the hotel website for more details.
The hotel is in a tranquil country location that’s just outside the city of Birmingham, so you get the best of both worlds. It’s just a 10-minute drive from Birmingham Airport and Birmingham International railway station. If you’re driving, you’ll find ample parking at the hotel. There’s more info on transport links on the Forest of Arden website.
We hope you do! On Wednesday evening, our Madam Chairman Gillian Rutter is hosting a relaxed BBQ-themed dinner and drinks reception and we’d love you to come along and mingle. We’ve negotiated discounted rates with the hotel and dinner, bed and breakfast costs £184, or £262 for double occupancy. To get this rate, you must make a reservation when you complete our conference booking form. The hotel has an onsite spa, golf course, pool, and fitness centre, so you can really make the most of your stay.
Credit or debit card – either Mastercard or Visa.
Yes. A three-course buffet lunch will be served (free of charge) and refreshments will be provided at tea/coffee breaks throughout the day.
Smart casual. This applies to the whole event, including the dinner and drinks reception on the Wednesday evening.
There are events running from 1:30pm on Wednesday 26th September, with the main conference taking place from 9am – 3:30pm on Thursday 26th September.
The app is designed to maximise your event experience. When you’ve booked your place, you’ll receive a confirmation email that includes a link to download the app to your Android or iOS device. The email also contains a unique code that you’ll need to enter into the app. Once you’ve installed it, you can view the attendee list so far and when the programme is released, you’ll be able to see the schedule and choose which sessions you want to attend. In a change from our usual format, at this year’s conference you’ll be able to select from different talks that are happening at the same time, so you can customise the conference programme to suit what interests you the most. Plus, we’ll be adding more content to the app as we get closer to the event.
Soon – we’re just putting the finishing touches on the programme! We’re still on the lookout for compelling speakers who can share best practice, industry insights or actionable advice from the world of towers. If there’s anyone you’d be particularly excited to see on stage at PASMA Conference 2019, please drop us a reply to this email and we promise to consider it.
