The rush was on when the doors to the trade show opened.
An extremely active trade show floor, sold-out seminars and positive energy and enthusiasm at The Rental Show 2013 in Las Vegas reflected the equipment rental industry’s upward trend.
The Rental Show 2013 marked its fourth straight year of increased attendance growth. The number of rental businesses represented increased this year as well and was the highest total since 2006, which was the 50th anniversary of The Rental Show. The total number of attendees was 5,365 from 2,480 rental businesses.
Attendees came from throughout the United States, Canada and more than 40 countries to The Sands Expo and Convention Center for the Feb. 10 to 13 show.
“Overall, The Rental Show reflects where this industry is headed. Everyone anticipated a great show because of the attitude, tone and urgency we’ve seen from attendees on buying equipment,” said Christine Wehrman, CEO of the American Rental Association, organizers of The Rental Show.
Next year, The Rental Show will be held Feb. 9 to 12 at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, Fla. For more information, visit TheRentalShow.com.
