CPA Conference 2021: An Essential Event for Those in the Plant-hire Sector

    The Construction Plant-hire Association (CPA) is hosting a live, physical conference at the Heart of England Conference and Events Centre in Fillongley near Coventry on Thursday 14th October 2021.

    The event is being held in association with headline sponsor Point of Rental Software and the theme of this year’s Conference is ‘Net Zero Carbon, and Digitalisation: The Challenge of Change for the Plant Sector’.

    The event will bring together a number of panel speakers discussing the two key themes of net zero carbon and digitalisation. Merryn Myatt will be convenor for the event. Merryn was convenor for the last CPA Conference hosted in 2019 and was a tremendous success. He is a former television newsreader, presenter and journalist, having worked on local and national radio and television, including being senior presenter on The Money Channel.

    CPA Chief Executive Kevin Minton said: “In our dealings with CPA members and the wider industry, there are two key themes that always emerge as having a great impact on the future of our sector – striving to achieve net zero carbon and digitalisation. We thought it best to shine the spotlight on these two key topics and net zero carbon will be addressed in the morning session and digitalisation in the afternoon.

    “The construction industry has played a critical role in the course of the COVID-19 pandemic, helping support vital infrastructure, building the Nightingale Hospitals and driving economic growth at a time when other sectors were forced to close. Now as we look to the future, the government’s plans to ‘Build Back Better’ confirms the role of construction in the post-pandemic economy.

    “The event will combine panel debates and interactive discussion, and it will be designed to allow delegates to come away with better insight about how they can prepare their businesses in the post-COVID age.”

    As well as attending the Conference, delegates will also have the opportunity to visit a number of exhibition stands. Confirmed exhibitors include Point of Rental Software, GenquipGroundhog, NOCN Group, Flannery Plant Hire, Scottish Qualifications Authority (SQA), CESAR, GGR Group, Capja, MHM Plant, L Lynch Plant Hire, JCB, Plant Planet and Supply Chain Sustainability School.
