LEND & GATHER IS A ONE-OF-A-KIND CONFERENCE GEARED SPECIFICALLY FOR BOUTIQUE EVENT RENTAL BUSINESSES.
IT WAS PROUDLY CO-FOUNDED BY RW ELEPHANT AND LOOT RENTALS.
Allison & Tim created RW Elephant while traveling through the U.S. on a five-week long roadtrip back in 2010. They wanted to create a software solution that would make keeping track of event rental inventory and orders simple, intuitive, and efficient. They created their aesthetically-rich platform specifically for the niche event rental market. While other software is geared towards huge operations, archaic infrastructure, and large investments, RW Elephant is designed specifically for emerging creative entrepreneurs. Boutique rental professionals around the world now use RW Elephant to know what’s going where when and run their rental businesses with ease and peace of mind.
Anna & Rhoda over at Loot Rentals are still passionate about elevating the boutique event rental industry and will always be honored as co-founders of the conference. They’re currently focusing on their own businesses and brands and while they are not active hosts any longer, they are forever champions to the Lend & Gather cause and are looking forward to seeing you there!
