IMCA Lifting & Rigging Seminar 2023

Lift planning in the new offshore environment – tools, training and technology.


Our one-day Lifting & Rigging Seminar returns on Thursday 26 October 2023. 

Taking place in-person in Amsterdam, Netherlands, the Seminar will explore the new tools, training and technology which are crucial to working in lifting and rigging in the “new offshore environment”. 

With an engaging line-up of prominent industry speakers, interactive Q&A sessions, and practical technical workshops, the Seminar brings together offshore installation contractors, technology providers, academia – as well as IMCA members and the broader industry – to explore the challenges and opportunities in lifting and rigging. 

All outputs feed into the work programme of IMCA’s Lifting & Rigging committee, providing attendees of our technical seminar an unrivalled opportunity for collaboration to positively shape the future of our sector

Attendees will hear from: Boskalis, Bridon-Bekaert, Cranemaster, Delft University of Technology, IMCA, Remazel, Seaway7, TechnipFMC, TWD and Vaisala. View the full programme and speaker line-up for 2023.
