We're very excited to welcome our Asian Distributors to Chiang Mai (Thailand), for three days of meetings and practical demonstrations and workshops, at some great venues! The event will take place from the 19-21 April, beginning with a conference/meeting.
Practical sessions will include an afternoon session at Phoenix Adventure Adventure Park, showing the SmartSnap Continuous Attachment Device, Zippey Clip'n'Zip Trolley, the ZipSpeed Trolleys, together with the Parachute and Superman Style Harnesses.
The practical session for Rope Access/Rescue will take place at an awesome abandoned multistorey building. This will be a fantastic site for putting a wide range of gear through its paces, in a range of rescue scenarios! We will be joined by guest demonstrator Mike Walrond (Rescue Specialist, Ferno Australia), designer of the mighty Arachnipod Total Edge Management System. Mike will be on hand to lead the group through a range of Arachnipod scenarios, showing the numerous configurations and capabilities of the system!
Day three will be spent at the beautiful Queen Sirikit Botanical Gardens (QSBG), or fomerly known as Mae Sa Botanic Garden. This is the first botanical garden in the country to meet international standards for scientific controls, collections and education. The main objectives of the garden are to serve as a centre of Thai flora for botanical study and research, to render services concerning biodiversity and environmental conservation, as well as to provide an aesthetic place for the general public. The wonderful trees and scenery make this the perfect venue for our Arborist/Tree Climbing and Rigging Demonstrations, hosted by ISC' s Rich Hattier (North American Sales Manager, Former Production Climber and Champion Tree Climber) and Adam Davies (ISC Product Specialist and Certified Arborist).
We will also be joined throughout by another guest demonstrator, Sammy Chun. Sammy's long list of credentials includes, SPRAT, IRATA, ACCT & ISA certifications. Sammy is Training Director of Hong Kong Rope Union and Chairman of Hong Kong Tree Climbing Championships. Sammy has also put together a team (including ISC's Adam Davies!), who will compete in the Grimp Day this year! We're absolutely delighted to have Sammy on board to bring his vast experience to each day of the demonstrations!
