The European Rental Association (ERA) is busy preparing for its annual convention, which is now only a week away.

And the continent’s rental community is also getting ready for the event - which starts on 3 June - with more than 275 delegates and nearly 20 table top exhibitors signed up so far.

But there is still time to register your participation at this annual gathering for everyone who has the interests of the equipment rental industry close to their heart.

The convention, the 10th of its kind, takes place over two days at Rome’s Melia Hotel and also includes the European Rental Awards, which are jointly organised by the ERA and the KHL Group magazine International Rental News, as well as extensive networking opportunities.

The convention has “Sustainability as an Opportunity” as its theme and includes speakers from companies such as Ramirent, Cramo, A-Plant and Zeppelin.

There will also be a presentation on “Trends in the European rental industry” by ERA secretary general Michel Petitjean, while former priest and political thinker Marc Luyckx Ghisi will give the closing speech.
