The theme of the 14th ERA Convention will be “Rental: A Sharing Economy”. The convention will be held at the Hotel Melia Castilla in Madrid, on 15 and 16 May 2019. Around 320 attendees - CEOs and Directors of rental companies, equipment manufacturers and other service providers of the equipment rental business, mostly from Europe but also from other continents - will meet during the two days.
The list of speakers is finalised and can be found on the ERA website, https://erarental.org/en/events/convention/era-convention-2019.
After the President of the ERA, Pierre Boels, has opened the convention and the Presidents of the two Spanish rental associations, ANAPAT and ASEAMAC, have welcomed the participants, James George from the Ellen McArthur Foundation will give a presentation about the Circular Economy. Then Climate Neutral Group and CE Delft will report on the project “CO2 Footprint of Construction Equipment”.
After the coffee break and a visit to the exhibitors, Marieke Blom from ING will address the topic of Sharing and Economy. Pietro Sibille, Todor Todorovski and Garrison Taylor, from Credit Agricole CIB, will give an investor’s perspective on the rental industry, and Michel Petitjean, the ERA’s General Secretary, will present the trends in the European equipment rental industry.
A simultaneous translation into Spanish of all the lectures of the Plenary Session will be available.
The Convention App will be available very soon to download. For the first time, and in order to make the work of the ERA more sustainable, the convention will be paperless.
