What Happens in Vegas...

...doesn't have to stay in Vegas. Use what you learn at The Rental Show all year long.

This year, The Rental Show returns to Las Vegas for the first time since 1999. Nearly 600 exhibits will spread out across approximately 576,500 square feet of available exhibit space at the new Mandalay Bay Convention Center, which opened in January 2003.

Also returning to its Monday through Thursday schedule this year — although the trade show floor doesn't open until Tuesday — The Rental Show is expecting more than 10,000 attendees and exhibitors from the 50 United States and more than 30 other countries, according to the American Rental Association.

Bob Dole, former U.S. Senator, will be the keynote speaker on Tuesday, February 15. He will discuss “Leadership and Values in the 21st Century.”

Employee Day, which was first introduced in 2004, is back for 2005. All ARA members can bring their pre-registered employees for free on Thursday, Feb. 17, to experience the trade show and learn more about the industry.
