The American Rental Association (ARA) has announced that the 2023 Women in Rental and Young Professional Network (YPN) conferences will be hosted in Clearwater Beach, Florida, in October.

 The conferences will be held back-to-back at the brand-new JW Marriott Clearwater Beach Resort & Spa. The Women in Rental conference will take place Monday, October 23 through Tuesday, October 24. The Young Professional Network conference will be held Wednesday, October 25 through Thursday, October 26. 

“We are excited to be hosting these two conferences in October as they will provide members the opportunity to experience focused education and targeted networking among their peers in a welcoming and fun atmosphere,” says Christine Hammes, ARA vice president, association services. “These conferences offer members an environment to foster lasting relationships and create deeper engagement within the industry.”

In addition to a two-night hotel stay, conference materials and swag, two interactive networking receptions, and breakfast and lunch during the conferences, registered attendees also will experience renowned speakers exclusive to their respective events: 

  • Sara Ross will present “Activate Your Aliveness Factor” at the Women in Rental conference. Ross’s session will leave attendees laughing, inspired, and feeling recharged with actionable takeaways to create more human-centered organizations, energized leaders, and healthier, happier, high-performing people.
  • James Taylor will present “Supercreativity: Augmenting Human Creativity in the Age of Artificial Intelligence” for the YPN group. Attendees will learn what disruptive technologies such as AI mean for you, your team and the industry; how to use the new science of “Augmented Creativity” to generate, evaluate, develop and implement more ideas, more quickly; which job roles in the industry are most at risk from automation and more.
