Sector challenges in the spotlight at CPA conference

THE Construction Plant-hire Association (CPA) has announced that this year’s CPA conference will be hosted on Thursday 9th November around the theme of ‘Facing the Challenges in the Plant-hire Sector’.

The one-day event will be held at the Heart of England Conference and Events Centre in Fillongley near Coventry.

This year’s panel debates will be chaired by event convenor Merryn Myatt, a former BBC news presenter and journalist who has hosted previous CPA conferences.

CPA chief executive Kevin Minton said, “We felt that this year’s conference should address the core issues that are of importance right now to CPA members and the wider construction industry, such as the rising cost of fuel and energy, critical supply chain shortages and the difficulties of attracting new recruits to the industry.

“We’re in the process of devising a packed, topical agenda with panel debates and case studies to allow delegates to come away with a deeper understanding as to how they can tackle some of the challenges they currently face.”
