“Preparations for the IAA are at full speed, and I am sure that the whole exhibition, including the World Crane Championships, will be unforgettable. The Hiab team and I warmly invite you to visit the stand to learn about our innovations, and afterwards enjoy the WCC finals,” says Sebastian Poccard, Senior Vice President, Sales & Services, Hiab.

For the first time ever, New Zealand will also join the WCC finals.
Contestants manoeuvre a HIAB crane equipped with the renowned HiPro control system through a series of obstacles, trying to arrive at a best possible time. At the IAA, the finalists get to operate a cutting edge HIAB X-HiPro 232, which is launched at the exhibition.
