POSTILLION HOTEL, AMSTERDAM
The ERA Convention 2021: ‘Smart Rental’ will take place on 29 and 30 September at the Postillion Hotel in Amsterdam alongside the European Rental Awards.

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.

The event will also showcase some key ERA tools for rental companies in the areas of sustainability and cybersecurity.
