Free seminars at IRE show

By Murray Pollok29 February 2008

The European Rental Association (ERA) will hold a full programme of rental workshops, roundtable discussions and other events as part of its convention to be held on 3-5 June in Amsterdam during the International Rental Exhibition (IRE).

The programme is still being finalized, but IRN understands that visitors to the exhibition will have free access to a wide range of ERA-organised speakers and events on all three days of the show.

Topics to be covered will include theft, transportation, rental sustainability, manufacturers and rental, and the future of tool hire. ERA is officially supporting the exhibition.

In addition, ERA and International Rental News are jointly organizing the first ever European Rental Awards, which will recognise and promote excellence in eight different award categories. The awards will be announced on 4 June at ERA's official dinner. This will be a ticket-only event open to both ERA members and nonmembers.
