For the second straight year, exhibit space has sold out for The Rental Show, scheduled for Feb. 9-12 in Orlando, Fla. In 2014, the trade show will have a greater number of exhibitors, a larger show floor and an increased number of first-time exhibitors.
There will be more than 675 exhibitors in Orlando at The Rental Show, which is an increase of 10 percent over 2013. Of the 2014 exhibitors, more than 80 will be brand-new to The Rental Show.
The first-time exhibitors cover all three trade show departments — construction/industrial, general tool/homeowner and party/special event — and will be displaying products such as generators, access equipment, pumps, drywall equipment, tools, lawn and garden equipment, software, furniture, games, dinnerware, centerpieces and more.
In addition to what’s offered from these first-time companies, many exhibitors debut new products at The Rental Show each year. More than 140 companies submitted products for inclusion in The Hot List supplement to Rental Management, featuring the latest rental products new to the show. The Hot List is distributed with the January issue of Rental Management and will be available on site in Orlando.
Show-Only Specials are another offering from exhibitors, with more than 160 companies signing up to offer specials. Show-Only Specials are incentives for purchasing that are available just to attendees at The Rental Show, a benefit many attendees take advantage of each year.
“Whether it’s free freight or an extra 5 percent off or something else, every year I save enough with the Show-Only Specials to pay for my trip to The Rental Show,” said Mike Baartman, Rent-All, Sioux Center, Iowa. “You can’t beat the deals. The major benefit of going to the show is the savings you can only get from being there in person.”
The Rental Show 2014 is Feb. 9-12 at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, with the trade show scheduled for Feb. 10-12. Complete details and online registration are available at TheRentalShow.com.
