An outspoken and highly experienced manager, Boels will share his company’s experience of opening up rental operations in new countries.
Europlatform is a one-day conference targeted at senior and middle managers of rental companies with access fleets, and this year’s theme is “Thinking Outside the Basket."
Other confirmed speakers are Soren Rosenkrands, COO of Riwal, who will speak on the topic of managing big self-propelled booms, and Michael Rohmeder, European key accounts manager at Ritchie Bros, who will examine the impact of new engine regulations on asset values. Also on the panel of speakers are Andy Studdert, CEO of US-based NES Rentals; Mustafa Bilgin, owner of Istanbul Vinç; Serkan Acar, general manager of Acarlar Makine; Faruk Aksoy, secretary-general of IMDER and ISDER; Chris Wraith, IPAF technical officer; and Murray Pollok, managing editor of Access International and editor of International Rental News.
The conference, organized by IPAF with Access International as exclusive media partner, will be held in English, with simultaneous translation in Italian, Spanish and Turkish. It will be preceded by an evening networking reception on Oct. 2.
“Europlatform is now firmly established as the premier event for European owners and managers of access rental fleets to network with their peers across the continent and get fresh thinking about how to optimise fleet management,” said IPAF CEO Tim Whiteman.
