The 2022 Rental Rally Tradeshow returned to Southpoint Casino Hotel in Las Vegas, Nev., on January 24 to 26.

The show returned after cancelling the 2021 show due to the pandemic. Initial attendance numbers and feedback appear to show that the traffic was steady and the seminars were well attended. The Rental Rally Tradeshow serves as an opportunity to network with other rental center owners and attend industry specific seminars, dedicated to either equipment rental or party rental.

The 2022 Rental Rally Tradeshow marked 75 years for the California Rental Association (CRA), which was celebrated at an evening "Diamond Jubilee Gala" held in the Grand Ballroom of the South Point Casino. The gala included music, dinner, memories and honored members who work to provide valuable resources and services to the rental industry.

Each year, CRA recognizes and awards members of the association with board awards, member/vendor recognition awards and two special awards, in honor of previous members.

The James Gartland Memorial Award

This award honors the memory of the founder of the Rental Equipment Register and the long-time friend of the California Rental Association. James Gartland helped recognize many "Rentalmen of the Year" and the CRA continues that tradition by acknowledging men and women who embody the qualities Gartland himself demonstrated — respect, vision and leadership.

The 2022 award was presented to Mitch Gutierrez of Orbit Rentals.

The W.E. ‘Bud' Loeber Friendship Award

This award honors the memory of the California Rental Association's former assistant executive director by perpetuating the memory of his smile, his positive attitude and his friendly approach to life. The award is presented to association members who demonstrate a sincere interest in the rental industry and the people in it.

The 2022 award was presented to John Frantz of California Portable Event Equipment Sales Inc.

Among other recognition, Victoria Blackwell was presented with a "Dale Blackwell Tribute" plaque, a tribute to her husband Dale Blackwell, who passed away in early 2020. Dale Blackwell was the California Rental Association executive director and owner of Sacramento, Calif.-based Aba Daba Rents.
