The winner of the Hire Company of the Year will receive:

  • A full delegate registration to the next Convention
  • Three night’s accommodation for two (double or twin share)
  • Return air fares for two
  • Winning logo to promote ‘Rental Company of the Year’ for use on advertising material

 What a wonderful showcase for our industry & equipment! There is a huge amount of effort involved in a nomination for Rental Company of the Year and everyone that participates deserves recognition for their commitment to excellence. We can all be sure the benefits and rewards of participating are also great, with the valuable input from independent assessors (the judges) providing instant feedback on areas for improvement. If you’ve never considered entering, now might be a good time to start
