Cranes Club Conference 2017

About the 2017 Conference

The Cranes Club mission is to able to: “Create a space for professionals of Unificationist background to network and share their expertise to better serve their communities and the greater society.” With this in mind we invite you to participate in the 2nd annual conference.

The 2017 Conference will take place from March 31st to April 2nd in London. It will be a great place to learn from and meet fellow cranes from Europe and around the world, as well as initiate and shape the future of the club.

FFWPU’s 43 Lancaster Gate and the Columbia Hotel (95-99 Lancaster Gate, London W2 3NS, UK) will serve as conference venues.

On Friday (March 31st) registration will open at 4pm, and then from 6pm you are invited to a reception with light buffet in 43 Lancaster Gate. No additional dinner will be provided.

Saturday (April 1st) will be the main conference day featuring keynote addresses, networking opportunities and break-out sessions such as mini-workshops,  roundtable with business owners or seminar with cranes working in research. A nice dinner and musical performances will round off the day.

The AGM (Annual General Meeting) will be held on Sunday (April 2nd). We will have a vote on the Crane Club’s legal structure and elect the club’s board of directors and discuss the club’s priorities for the next year. The early registration fee will be 85 GBP (instead of 100 GBP) if you register by March 1st. The registration fee covers the conference costs and Saturday meals, including a fancy dinner, as well as Sunday breakfast and lunch (in addition to teas, coffee, and snacks throughout the conference). It doesn’t include accommodation, so we ask that everyone arranges their own, although we can help to organise group accommodation at a good rate. At the moment, we have 12 spots available for 45 GBP/person for two nights at the Chelsea Embankment Guesthouse. This is a great price for London, so if you’re interested in taking advantage of a group booking, we’re going to need to know as soon as possible, especially if we need to try to book more.

Attached you will find a draft schedule and you can sign up for our Cranes Club newsletter for future information here. Also take a look at our promo video!
