Checking out the sights at Bauma are SC&RA executive vice president Joel Dandrea and vice president Doug Ball. Dandrea spoke at the Thursday night European Association of Heavy Haulage Transport and Mobile Cranes (ESTA) dinner, pledging support for a global summit in 2009. The dinner was held in conjunction with Bauma, the construction equipment exhibition in Munich, Germany, April 23-29, which attracted more than a half million registrants from 109 nations. Dandrea said a world summit would be very useful in spreading the initiatives on safety and other key matters while creating a worldwide forum for the lifting and transport sector.
