Careers in Crane, Rigging & Specialized Transport to be Featured at CONEXPO-CON/AGG

Posted on February 22, 2020

Lift & Move USA will participate in a multi-association workforce solutions initiative at CONEXPO-CON/AGG, in Las Vegas, Nev., March 10-14.

Lift & Move USA is supported by the Specialized Carriers & Rigging Association, SC&R Foundation, NCCCO Foundation, and media partner KHL. It connects students and educators with the people, equipment, and companies that work in crane, rigging, and specialized transportation.

The Workforce Solutions Area at the show has a two-fold purpose—to share the industry’s best practices for workforce development with each other, and on March 12-13, to interact with approximately 1,000 students from the Las Vegas area.

“Lift & Move USA has planned a presentation showcasing the role of transportation, lifting, and rigging in the construction of Allegiant Stadium, future home of the Las Vegas Raiders,” said Tracy Bennett, Director of Lift & Move USA. “Dozens of SC&RA member company representatives have volunteered their time and expertise to present an interactive exhibit for the students.”

Since 2015, Lift & Move USA has held hands-on field events for more than 4,500 students in 15 cities. “We look forward to sharing some of our tips and lessons learned with our industry colleagues,” said Bennett.
