Another Fantastic Year at The Rental Show


The ARA Show 2018

Running from February 18th – 21st, the fascinating city of New Orleans hosted this year’s ARA Rental Show and it most certainly didn’t disappoint. A total of 12,066 people were in attendance, making it the largest show since 2006! Rental businesses from all over the world came to display their latest innovation, so there was much to see.

We made substantial developments to our software since last exhibiting and were excited to be returning once more. One inspHire product that visitors took a significant interest in was inspHire Mobile. We demonstrated how their business could transition from manual processes into a paperless operation by utilizing inspHire Mobile’s electronic paper trail. Easing the difficulty of our customers day to day processes is one of our top priorities so we we’re very happy to see the product being received so positively.

Another aspect of The Rental Show we were extremely impressed with was the variety of educational seminars and workshops available. ‘The 12 Week Year’ lead by speaker Brian Moran was a very interesting session focused on accelerating business performance. It was great to see such a focus placed on sharing knowledge amongst businesses in the rental industry and we hope to see this trend in education continue.

Towards the end of the show schedule we headed to the Bayou Bash at House of Blues which was an evening networking event in New Orleans’ historic French Quarter. The live music entertainment and authentic New Orleans cuisine were both excellent and it was also a welcomed opportunity to engage with rental professionals. Networking with fellow rental industry experts throughout the show has been a thoroughly enjoyable experience and the sheer volume of enquiries we received this year was outstanding.

We’d like to say a big thanks to the ARA for organizing yet another brilliant event and another thank you to all who came to visit us. The Rental Show makes its next appearance in Anaheim, California. See you there!
