The Rental Show is the American Rental Association's annual convention and trade show for the equipment rental industry. It features construction/industrial equipment, general tool/homeowner equipment and party/special event equipment, as well as rental-specific seminars and industry networking.


When it comes to trade shows, nothing speaks louder than ROI. You need to know the right customers will be there and your investment will impact sales. The Rental Show has a strong track record of bringing decision makers together in one place - many with a list of inventory needs to fill. No other show delivers the same opportunity to meet face-to-face with quality leads across the entire equipment rental market.

Exhibiting at The Rental Show 2014 is certain to connect you with valuable leads and deliver a solid return on your investment. No other show brings such a large collection of decision makers to one place, giving you face-to-face time with the right people.


Year after year, attendees come to The Rental Show to compare products and make inventory choices.  And annual surveys indicate that the Show is a deciding factor in the orders they place - both at and after
the Show. It’s the ideal setting to reach out to customers in every stage of the buying process. Whether you’re
connecting with new leads or building your relationship with existing customers, that contact can have a
significant impact on sales.

For 57-plus years, The Rental Show has been the event for the industry, bringing thousands of equipment rental business owners and managers back year after year. It is the event where they make critical purchasing decisions and build relationships with exhibitors.

The Rental Show's trade show floor includes the following departments:

Construction/Industrial Equipment is almost exclusively rented by construction firms or contractors and is normally towed or driven to a job site. Examples include earthmoving equipment such as backhoes, excavators and trenchers; access equipment such as aerial work platforms and telehandlers; and large generators.

General Tool/Homeowner Equipment is usually rented by small contractors and do-it-yourself (DIY) homeowners and most can be transported by car or in the back of a pickup truck. The equipment is used for light construction, including building renovations and additions, concrete work and landscaping.

Party/Special Event Equipment covers rental of products to consumers for celebrations such as weddings, graduations and parties, and to corporations for promotional, recreational and special events. It includes such items as tents, tables and chairs, linens, tableware and other equipment specifically rented for parties or events.
