September 3 - Will it be a 'mid summer night's dream', or a 'winter's tale' for the Heavy Lift Group when it holds its 53rd conference from October 26 - 27, 2013 at Stratford upon Avon in the UK, birthplace of famous poet and writer, Shakespeare.

As a group of specialised heavy transport companies including project freight forwarders, port operators, trucking companies and shipping lines, the Heavy Lift Group claims to be the oldest of its kind in the world and last year celebrated its 25th anniversary.

Companies that are interested in joining the group can apply via its website.
