International Car Rental Show Announces Full Schedule

In conjunction with the American Car Rental Association (ACRA), Auto Rental News announces the full schedule for the 2018 International Car Rental Show.  

The 2018 International Car Rental Show (ICRS), taking place April 15-17 at Bally’s Las Vegas, features two and a half days of education, exhibit hall interaction, and networking — more than 40 hours of total programming.

Alexander Sixt, chief administration officer of Sixt SE, the world’s fifth largest car rental company, will deliver this year’s opening keynote address. The event also features an address from Leo Cai, senior executive at eHi Car Services, one of China’s leading car rental and mobility providers.

Seminar highlights include a presentation specifically for investors as well as topics such as protecting against sexual harassment, preventing cybersecurity breaches, understanding legal issues surrounding new business models, and trends in the wholesale market, among many more.

ACRA will update its efforts on the legislative issues affecting the industry today and share the results of the association’s lobbying efforts in Washington, D.C. and state and local levels.

ICRS once again welcomes operators from Latin America with a programming track specific to their markets and presented in Spanish, Portuguese, and English. ICRS anticipates auto rental professionals from North America and more than 28 countries.

The exhibit hall will feature vehicles from major automakers, a race car “fun zone,” and interactive technology displays.

“As we have for 23 years, we look forward to providing the global car rental community with the latest tactics, trends, technology, and products,” said Chris Brown, executive editor of Auto Rental News. “And this year, we open our doors to operators of new business models serving new markets.”
