CPA conference postponed to October 2021

THE Construction Plant-hire Association (CPA) has announced that the 2021 CPA Conference has been rescheduled for Thursday 14 October 2021 at the Heart of England Conference and Events Centre in Fillongley near Coventry.

The event was due to take place in April 2021, however the CPA said that in light of the Covid-19-related uncertainty it has been decided to postpone the event to later in the year.

The conference is a one-day event, designed to address key issues facing the construction plant sector. Prior to the event, the CPA is introducing a six-month webinar programme.

CPA chief executive Kevin Minton said, “In this time of uncertainty, it is in the best interests of everyone if we move the conference to October 2021. We look forward to coming back bigger and better than ever before with a programme that engages and addresses the issues of our time, whilst also looking ahead to the post-Covid age. Some issues won’t wait for the rescheduled CPA Conference in October 2021, so we are introducing a programme of webinars over a period of six months, to address some topics of immediate relevance and concern that we would have covered in at the conference in April.”

The CPA webinar programme will start on 19 November 2020 with the theme of ‘Brexit: What do you need to do to prepare?’ Attendees can pre-register at
