If you couldn’t make it for the annual International Conference Event this year, you missed a LOT! With a record high attendance, we sold out even after two venue expansions. Nearly two hundred customers from around the world gathered in Fort Worth, Texas, for this annual training and networking event on November 9th–11th.
The conference consisted of three days packed full of expert speakers, industry specific training, round table discussions, one-on-one Q&A’s with Point of Rental staff, and nights filled with great memories and valuable networking events.
Tracey Armenakis, owner of Taylor Rental Party Plus of Palatine, IL, said, “What an excellent conference! We learned so much. Great people who really want to see you succeed. So glad we chose Point of Rental!”
The conference event is organized so that no matter how big or small your company is, or what industry you’re in, you can choose the training that best fits your operations. Every year, the content is completely fresh with multiple opportunities for one-on-one time with the Point of Rental staff to guarantee attendees will leave with valuable new ideas to implement in their businesses.
Gary Anderson, Network Administrator of Star Rentals, said, “We just wanted to write and say thank you for putting on such an excellent conference. The accommodations were outstanding, really nice place, incredible history. The speakers and breakout out sessions were very enlightening. The dinners and evening entertainment were very tasty and well planned. The opportunity to meet other customers from the Seattle area was great. The staff couldn’t have been any nicer when we came through the office. It was nice to put faces with all of the people we talk to on a regular basis. The staff at Point of Rental Software is truly top notch! We are incredibly glad we attended the conference event for this year and look forward to coming again next year.“
“We come to this conference event every year and always get so much out of it. It is amazing how much you can do with the software that we didn’t even realize before!” Bart Nye, President of Prime Time Party Rentals said.
From dinner at Reata Restaurant to custom created rental industry comedy at Four Day Weekend, singing and dancing at Pete’s Dueling Piano Bar, and mouth-watering slow-smoked Texas BBQ from Coburn’s Catering, attendees walked away with valuable industry connections and a lot of great memories.
“We are really excited that this conference continues to grow,” Point of Rental CEO, Wayne Harris said. “We invest a lot of time and energy into this event because we believe that the greater knowledge people have of the capabilities built into Point of Rental software, the greater efficiencies they will see in their businesses; which in turn will give them more time to spend on what truly matters.”
The conference concluded with a tour of two Point of Rental customer locations, Rental Stop and Celebration Event Rental, with a final stop at the Point of Rental corporate headquarters to meet the team and experience the unique office culture (and engage in Nerf Gun warfare).
We also want to give a big thanks to our sponsors! This event definitely wouldn’t be as successful without our platinum sponsors, Clearview Financial, Rouse Analytics, TSO Mobile, and SmartEquip; gold sponsor, RentalHosting; and silver sponsors, ARA Insurance, Harland Technology Services, In-A-Bind and Positek RFID.
Thank you to everyone that came out and made this event the best year yet. You can bet that we have already started planning the 2016 International Conference and you won’t want to miss it!
