Special Conference Activities
It’s not all about business at the 2018 Crane Users Conference. Konecranes has setup several special activities to help make sure everyone is able to get the most out of their experience. 

As a special “welcome” to Pittsburgh, Konecranes is sponsoring a private reception at beautiful PNC Park. Conference participants and their guests will be treated like baseball VIP's in the World Series Suite at this beautiful park in the shadow of the Roberto Clemente Bridge. Food and beverages included!

Following the opening night reception, attendees will settle in for that night’s interleague baseball battle between Pittsburgh and Kansas City.
Here’s a great way to tee off a great week in Pittsburgh!
