To all participants - thank you

29 May 2018

The ERA board and the ERA secretariat thank all the participants (attendees, sponsors, exhibitors, speakers and moderators) for having contributed to the success of this 13th ERA Convention.

ERA Convention 2018

More than 320 attendees had registered to the convention, which is the highest number ever reached at an ERA Convention! Twenty-six countries were represented, mostly European countries including Turkey, Russia and Georgia but also the US, Kazakhstan, Canada, China.

A special thank you to the Zeppelin Rental team, who organised a visit of the Austria campus job site.

This was the first time that the ERA delegates could visit a job site instead of a rental branch. Considering the success of this visit, this experience will probably be renewed.

Congratulations also to the Future Group, who was organising a workshop for the first time. It was very well attended and offered new ways of interacting with the audience on, sometimes, disruptive topics.

You will find most of the presentations and the pictures of the event on the ERA website,

The next convention will take place in Madrid, on 15 and 16 May 2019.
