The American Rental Association reported the total number of attendees at The Rental Show this year was 12,066, with 2,657 of those representing rental businesses.

This marks the first time since 2006 total attendance has topped 12,000, and that year was the American Rental Association’s (ARA’s) 50th anniversary celebration in Orlando.

“There is a tone of optimism in the industry,” said Tony Conant, CEO of ARA. “Everybody I spoke to in the construction segment said the show was as good or better than last year, and it was the largest show floor in 20 years. Many said it was one of the best shows they’ve been to.”

Looking ahead to next year, The Rental Show will return to the West Coast for the first time in six years. The event will be held Feb. 17-20, 2019 in Anaheim, CA. The city has hosted the ARA annual convention seven times previously, between 1973 and 2003.
