Get ready for the rental show

With five days of events, more than 600 exhibitors and more than 300 categories of new rental products to cover, The Rental Show is the place to be. The show is being held February 13-17 at the Mandalay Bay Convention Center in Las Vegas.

The Rental Show has never been held at a location like Mandalay Bay with so many amenities under one roof. There's dining, shopping, gaming, shows, a spa and several attractions to experience after show hours.

The seminar schedule at The Rental Show will offer programs focusing on construction, general tool and party and special event rental. On Thursday, Feb. 17, The Rental Show will offer Employee Day once again. You can bring employees to experience some exclusive educational seminars as well as the trade show for free. Pre-registration is required.

The Rental Show is also offering Events & Tents 2005. This educational workshop focuses exclusively on party and special event rental, with 20 seminars on a broad range of industry topics as well as other learning activities.

Once again, The Rental Show will offer its Construction University. This one-day educational program will explore a range of topics presented by industry experts, manufacturers and rental veterans. Owners, managers and employees can all benefit from the program.

A New Product Spotlight Reception will be held Feb. 14. You can mingle with friends and rental peers while images of new products appear on video displays throughout the reception area. Featured products from the reception will also be "spotlighted" on the trade show floor through the end of the show.

On Feb. 15, Bob Dole will offer insight into the key values it takes to be a leader today during his keynote session. He will look at the challenges we face as a nation and as a world in the midst of unprecedented political and economic change. In addition to Dole's presentation, the keynote session will include the Rental Hall of Fame induction and a state of the industry address from ARA President Allen Morehead.

Along with all the educational opportunities, there will be many products on display by hundreds of exhibitors at the Mandalay Bay Convention Center in Las Vegas. Take a look at the following pages for a sample of what you can expect to find on the trade show floor.
