Jose Blanco, the Promotion Committee Chairman
The Committee was created in 2013, as a continuation of the former Norms and Safety Committee, who later became the EU Affairs Committee, and of the Association Day. It is composed of the representatives from the national rental associations that are members of ERA and IPAF. 
This Committee is the platform for the associations to meet and exchange and where they can brainstorm with their European peers about how to improve the rental business in general. It focuses notably on promotion of rental and communication, management and coordination of trade events, safety issues, standardisation, theft, attracting talents to the industry and all issues relevant to the national associations.
It is also keeping up-to-date the list of EU issues and EU organisations of relevance to the rental industry, initially identified by the EU Affairs Committee.
Because of the difficulties for the SMEs to consider Sustainability as a priority, it was decided to involve the national associations in this topic so that they can motivate their members to put Sustainability more central in their business approach.
