The International Rental Conference (IRC) was successfully held today in Shanghai, China, attracting an audience of around 300 delegates. The audience saw high-level presentations from companies including LSHM North China, Hitachi Shanghai, JLG, Liugong and rental company Zhongneng United. 

The event, being held this year for the ninth time, is the largest conference in China focusing on the fast-growing equipment rental sector.

Almost 300 delegates attended the 2021 International Rental Conference in Shanghai.

Lawrence Luo, CEO of LSHM North China – a major Caterpillar dealer in China – spoke about the future role for equipment dealers in China’s rental market, while Tei Gyomei, Managing Director of Hitachi Shanghai, provided a ‘masterclass’ in rental management techniques.

This year’s conference was an all-Chinese affair because of the travel restrictions relating to Covid, but two video presentations were shown from foreign speakers.
