ERA Convention 2023 - only 1 week to go!

By ERA31 May 2023

The ERA Convention is the premier event for the European equipment rental industry and brings ‎together more than 300 leading voices from rental companies and suppliers to the industry to ‎network, learn and share.

This year’s event will address the challenges encountered by the ‎equipment rental industry in attracting people and will develop the topics of retention, ‎development, training, diversity and inclusion.‎

This 17th Convention of the European Rental Association will take place at the MECC in Maastricht, the Netherlands, on 7 and 8 June. For the first time since 2017, the Convention will take place alongside the International Rental ‎Exhibition (IRE), the only exhibition in Europe dedicated only to the rental industry.

The APEX ‎exhibition (dedicated to aerial platforms) will also take place in the same premises, so that all ‎attendees to these events can make the most out of their presence in Maastricht. Both exhibitions ‎will open their doors on 6 June, the day before the ERA Convention opens.‎

On the evening of 6 June, ERA has organised a cultural programme, with a guided tour of Maastricht, followed by a cocktail and canapés at Bold Rooftopbar with spectacular views across the city.

On 7 June, also at the MECC, the traditional European Rental Awards ceremony will celebrate the creativity, innovation and excellence of companies and individuals in ‎the equipment rental business. The Convention and the Awards Dinner will be moderated by business ‎presenter Maarten Bouwhuis.

International keynote speaker and talent acquisition and recruitment specialist Nicklas Pyrdol will ‎close the Convention.

Register for both events here: Access to IRE and APEX is included in the registration to the ERA Convention.
