NEW FOR 2020:  Application Spotlights

The live Closing Session on Friday, September 18, 2020 will provide a look at innovative and/or challenging application “case studies” presented by YOU and your fellow Members.

We are seeking Member representatives willing to present a short live or pre-recorded virtual Application Spotlight, highlighting how they overcame specific lifting or load securement challenges during a unique and interesting application of synthetic slings or tie downs. Your presentation may include a PowerPoint with audio, and/or video of the application. You may present live or provide a recorded video in advance and participate in live Q&A. Please note, the Application Spotlight is meant to inform and educate the Membership on product applications and is not intended as a forum for brand-specific product or company information.

See the SCHEDULE page for details and to sign up to present an Application Spotlight!
