2012 Car Rental Show Summary

April 4 2012

With more than 100 international attendees from over 25 countries and some 700 attendees in total, the 2012 Car Rental Show was a great success!

“Our increased attendance and our expanded program, as well as overflowing seminar rooms and an enlarged expo hall are testaments to the renewed vigor and attention focused on the auto rental industry right now,” said Chris Brown, Executive Editor of Auto Rental News, the show’s sponsor.

The Car Rental Show kicked off with a popular Sunday night cocktail reception, then segued into four packed Monday morning pre-conference seminars. The special address delivered by Missouri Congressman Sam Graves and the Keynote Address co-delivered by Mark Frissora (The Hertz Corp.) and Gary Rappeport (Donlen Corporation) were also extremely well received and highly attended; attendees packed into seats and filled the back standing room-only area to hear these highly anticipated addresses.
