By Lindsey Anderson08 June 2021
Registration is now open for the 2021 ALH Conference set to be held Sept. 14 at the Loews Chicago O’Hare Hotel.
Organized by Access, Lift & Handlers and its publisher, KHL Group, the day-long ALH Conference will be the industry’s first in-person gathering since the start of the global pandemic. It will provide those in the industry the perfect opportunity to meet face-to-face again, share stories, make new contacts and talk business.
Kicking off the event will be keynote speaker Larry Silber, president, chief executive officer and director of Herc Rentals Inc. Silber’s topic, “Technology, trust and talent – keys to equipment rental growth,” will touch upon current issues the rental industry faces – and how it must rise to meet these.
“All signs point to the continuing growth of the equipment rental industry over the next several years,” Silber said. “But there are three ongoing challenges the industry must rise to in order to maintain its growth trajectory, which relate to technology, trust and talent.”
Silber will explore each of these challenges, including adopting technology tools that make it easy and efficient for customers to rent, monitor and manage their fleet; continuously earning trust by meeting service commitments and operating responsibly; and attracting and retaining skilled talent to ensure continued operational readiness. Silber will offer insights in each of these areas and what the industry must do to stay on its long-term growth path.
