Douglas will address the role of e-learning in aerial platform training.

Rankin, who works in Loxam’s Powered Access division (Loxam PAD), will share his thoughts on creating a successful powered access rental business.

The event, which is organised by International Rental News (IRN), takes place at the Jumeirah Himalayas hotel the day before the start of APEX Asia.
