W porozumieniu z członkami PSBW przed webinarium wysłane zostały następujące
odpowiedzi na ankietę przygotowaną przez ERA:
– Market sizing:
– Rental activity  expressed as a percentage of last year’s figures on each month of Q2
2020 compared to Q2 2019 or, alternatively and as a summary, the total of Q2.
Sorry we are not able to accurately answer this question, as we do not have access to
the data. We can only have a feeling. Our feeling is that  the total turnover in Q2 was
down by 10-20% caused to the equal extent by the stopped investments and by the
drop in the rental rates. However Events were seriously down.
 
– Forecast for rental activity on global Q3 2020 vs Q3 2019- The same as in the case of the
previous question i.e. no precise data available, but we think there will be a drop of 10-20%
in respect to Q3 2019, and a substantial drop in the Events totals.
