BN EUR ANNUAL TURNOVER
Why is it important to join ERA?
“Before the ERA existed it is true to say that there was little cooperation between rental companies; no working together on issues of common interest; and no learning from each other or sharing best practice.
That has changed dramatically, with the association’s various working committees and the annual Convention creating avenues for education, lobbying, cooperation and relationship building.”
The annual ERA Convention brings together the leading voices of the European rental industry to network, learn and share. Don’t miss the next Convention on 16-17 June 2021.
