The American Rental Association last week announced it will host 120 first-time exhibitors at The Rental Show March 2-5 at the Georgia World Congress Center in Atlanta.
“It’s exciting to have new companies coming into The Rental Show, as it demonstrates the tremendous interest in the rental market that exists,” said Carla Johnson, ARA associate member director. “These companies are eager to showcase their products and meet rental business personnel in Atlanta.”
Of these new exhibitors, 44 percent are in the light construction/general tool department, 33 percent in the heavy construction department and 22 percent in the party/special event department.
Products being offered by these first-time exhibitors in heavy construction include towable and skid-mounted air compressors, a two-axle articulated dump truck, portable conveyor systems and an OSHA-approved material handler box that also functions as a work platform. Light construction/general tool products from new exhibitors include trailers, commercial upright and backpack vacuums, portable air conditioning and heating equipment, and a wireless voice communications system for workers. New products in party/special event include washable and changeable modular furniture, tent stake extractors, a variety of linens, and evaporative snow and foam machines.
An online exhibitor search is available at www.TheRentalShow.com. Each company has an online virtual booth that includes booth number, products that will be available at the Show and contact information.
According to ARA, the light construction/general tool department of The Rental Showis sold out and overall exhibit space is 97 percent sold.
