By Murray Pollok15 March 2011
The latest big names to book their places at the International Rental Exhibition (IRE) are Terex Construction and Volvo Construction Equipment, who join the almost 65 other suppliers who are attending the show in Amsterdam on 7-9 June.
Other exhibitors already confirmed include Atlas Copco, Ditch Witch, Godwin Pumps, Haulotte Group, Hilti, Manitou, Result Group, Thwaites Dumpers, Vermeer, Wacker Neuson, Wynne Systems and Yanmar CE.
Visitors can register in advance for the show online at the exhibition website: www.IREShow.com Registering in advance gives visitors free entry to the exhibition.
Other companies that have recently signed up for the show include Bocker Group, GenSet UK, Active Where and Jura Filtration.
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 at the same venue on the same three days. 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."
