ERA Convention 2021: Smart Rental

27 September - 8 October

VENUE TO BE CONFIRMED
The ERA Convention 2021: ‘Smart Rental’ and European Rental Awards have been postponed to autumn 2021. A new date and venue will now be found in September or October this year and an announcement will be made soon.

At this year’s event, leading voices from the European rental industry will gather to discuss the latest developments and trends in the industry. This year’s Convention will focus on digitalisation and data, which is an issue of growing importance to the rental industry. Forward-thinking rental companies are already taking advantage of the huge opportunities offered by new technologies and success stories demonstrate that digital technologies can provide the rental industry with a strong foundation for future success.

Registrations will be open closer to the date. Please note that registrations for the 2020 Convention remain valid.
