It is not only possible to participate individually in the Heavy Lift Specialist Public Seminars. It is also possible to organize your own “In-House” seminar taking place at the venue chosen by you, usually at or near your own company office sites, with the delegates from your company, on a date and time chosen by you – to suit your company’s schedule.

There are various advantages for the In-House Seminar, but probably the most impressive would be the price per delegate. Not only the individual attendance cost* but all the add on costs, such as the accommodation and travel costs for the delegates can be efficiently minimized.

To find out whether an In-House Seminar would suit your company’s situation send an e-mail to info@heavyliftspecialist.com with your requirement details to receive a quotation.

*individual delegate cost will vary with the number of participating delegates.

Heavy Lift Specialist has been giving “In-Company Seminars” in the following offices:
