The European Rental Association (ERA) is again organising a day of rental themed events during Intermat, taking place on Thursday 23 April. There are two elements to the day:
Loxam depot visit (10.00-12.00)
ERA has organised a visit to a Loxam rental location at Aulnay-sous-Bois, which is reasonably close to the Intermat show ground.
“This guided visit will be an excellent opportunity to understand how the depots of these kinds of companies operate and to learn more about all operational aspects of rental in France”, said the ERA.
Buses to the rental depot will leave at 10 am from the Shuttle station – Esplanade Hall 1. Those interested are advised to meet at 9.30 am. Buses will return delegates to Intermat around midday. The number of places for the visit is limited.
Conference and debate (2.00 – 4.00 pm)
This session, being held in Rooms 501 and 502 in Hall 5A (Mezzanine level), will consist of a detailed presentation on the work of the ERA’s equipment technology committee. One of the key issues is the committee’s recommendations to manufacturers on the design of equipment in order to reduce the risk of customers damaging rental machines. This is a topic of enormous interest to both manufacturers and rental companies.
Following that presentation, in the same room, there will be a debate with rental companies and manufacturers, moderated by IRN’s managing editor, Murray Pollok. Among the participants will be Martin Holmgren, who is vice president of fleet management at Cramo AB.
Advance registration for both the depot visit and the conference is advised and can be done at the Intermat website: http://paris-en.intermatconstruction.com/ (‘Events’ section)
