By Murray Pollok13 April 2011
JCB has signed up for the International Rental Exhibition (IRE) in Amsterdam on 7-9 June, joining other big name exhibitors including Terex Construction, Volvo, Atlas Copco, Wacker Neuson and Hilti.
There are over 70 exhibitors at the show, which takes place at the RAIE exhibition centre on the same three days and at the same venue as the European Rental Association's annual convention.
Other exhibitors confirmed include Haulotte Group, Ditch Witch, Godwin Pumps, Manitou, Result Group, Thwaites Dumpers, Vermeer, Wynne Systems and Yanmar CE. A full list can be found at the show website: www.IREshow.com
Visitors can register in advance for the show online at the exhibition website. Registering in advance gives visitors free entry to the exhibition.
Exhibitors will show an enormous range of tools, equipment and technology, all targeted at rental companies, including compact earthmoving equipment, power tools/hand-held tools, pumps, generators, compressors and rental software systems.
Rental IT will be a definite theme at the show, with more than 10 companies demonstrating rental software or rental IT technology. For an up-to-date list of the exhibitors, see the show website.
In addition to the trade exhibition, visitors can register to attend the European Rental Association's (ERA) annual convention, which takes place in adjoining halls at the RAIE centre. Prices for registration, and the full programme, can be found on the ERA's website: www.erarental.org
The conference - which is open to both ERA members and non-members - includes seminars, expert presentations and workshops covering almost every aspect of the rental market.
"The convention is open to everyone, and everyone can find something of value", said Gérard Déprez, president of the ERA, "It is the ideal opportunity to take the temperature of the rental market as it comes out of the crisis: what is new; what has changed."
Mr Déprez emphasised the benefits to all rental companies - not just ERA members - of attending the convention and the IRE show. "My advice is not to come alone - bring colleagues with you. Afterwards you can discuss the convention with your colleagues, share ideas and get a different point of view."
