Exhibitor Information:

What is the one source the equipment rental industry relies on for new products, the latest revenue-generating trends and trusted vendors? The Rental Show, of course. And The Rental Show has been the gathering spot for the rental industry since the American Rental Association began with 21 business owners back in 1955. The Show is currently riding a six-year wave of continued attendance growth, which reflects the dynamic of the industry during this decade.

A celebration of ARA’s 60th anniversary will take place at The Rental Show 2016, with a look back at the past and how the association has grown and prospered as well as a look ahead toward a continued successful future. More importantly, it’s where you need to be – the show where you can reach more serious buyers, quality leads and new prospects in a thriving industry.


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.
