Stuart Rothenberg, founder of the Rothenberg Political Report and a go-to political analyst for national newspapers and network news programs, will speak at the 2018 International Car Rental Show. Rothenberg will be the featured speaker for the American Car Rental Association’s (ACRA) general seminar.
One of the preeminent political pundits of the last three decades, Rothenberg writes a weekly column for Capitol Hill’s Roll Call and has also written for The Wall Street Journal, New York Times, and Washington Post. His network television appearances include Meet the Press, Face the Nation, and Nightline, and he has been a regular contributor to CNN and PBS NewsHour.
“There seems to be more uncertainty in politics today than ever before,” says Gordon Reel, vice president, Government & Public Affairs for Enterprise Holdings and ACRA board member. “ACRA brought Stu in to give attendees his insights on which way the political winds are blowing — and why. Having his keen insight will help ACRA and its constituents be prepared.”
“For ACRA to be able to bring Stuart Rothenberg to the 2018 ICRS is a coup, and his knowledge and perspective further fortify the high-level education of this year’s agenda,” says Chris Brown, executive editor of Auto Rental News.
“To have an in-person perspective from one of Washington, D.C.’s true insiders is a first and a coup for ACRA and the International Car Rental Show,” says Chris Brown, executive editor of Auto Rental News. “Rothenberg’s address rounds out the already high-level, wide-ranging, and in-depth programming offered at this year’s event.”
ACRA’s general session will take place at 10am, April 16. The 2018 International Car Rental Show convenes April 15-17 at Bally’s Las Vegas.
In this survey of independent and franchised car rental operators in the U.S., 58% report a decline of gross revenues of more than 75%, with 17% reporting a 100% decline, essentially as a result of suspending operations.
