Connect with other young professionals and build your network within the equipment and event rental industry, learn career-building strategies and create new friendships.

"At the conference, you're able to learn a lot from your peers. You learn that they run into the same issues that you also have, and you can bounce ideas off of them. It's a good way to learn new procedures and ways to do things," says Daniel Zuniga, Botton's Equipment Rental, McMinnville, Ore., who attended the Denver conference.
