ERA Convention and European Rental Awards postponed to autumn 2021

By KHL editorial staff17 March 2021

The European Rental Association’s Convention and European Rental Awards, due to take place at the MECC in Maastricht on 16 and 17 June, have been postponed to the autumn because of the ongoing Covid pandemic.

A new date and venue will now be found in September or October this year and an announcement will be made in the coming months. The process for entries to the awards is unchanged, with the deadline already extended to Friday, 19 March.

The decision was taken on the basis that a physical event in June was extremely unlikely due to the continued spread of Covid-19 around Europe. Even if it was possible, restrictive measures would have made it very difficult to hold the events with the normal level of networking, while respecting social distancing.

The Convention and awards were due to take place alongside the International Rental Exhibition (IRE) and the APEX aerial platform show, which were cancelled last month.
