Show Daily
The doors opened at 10 a.m. on Tuesday, Jan. 31, 2017, and the exhibit hall came to life. With nearly 350 booths to visit, Rental Rally attendees had lots of ground to cover and plenty of deals to seal. From electric fencing to table linens, from software solutions to scissor lifts, rental center owners had the opportunity to see the latest products to hit the market, learn about services that can help them streamline their businesses and network with other industry professionals. The buzz around the show floor was positive from both an attendee and exhibitor standpoint. And for those who couldn’t get through the entire exhibit hall, the doors open at 9 a.m. today.

After the long tradeshow day, attendees were whisked over to the Hofbräuhaus restaurant for the Annual Dinner/Awards Ceremony. It was an evening of good food, entertaining music and fun people. While folks were enjoying a traditional spread of Bavarian pretzels, sauerkraut, sausages and bread pudding, a live band played German music.

Three awards were given out after dinner. The W.E. "Bud" Loeber Friendship Award was bestowed upon Arlen Stringfellow, a CRA member who passed away last year. Kali Sarris accepted the award on behalf of Arlen’s family. The James Gartland Memorial Award was given to Richard Briggs. The ceremony concluded with the association recognizing former board member Don Cruikshank for his outstanding service to CRA.
And, while just three specific awards were distributed last night, it's clear, based on the success of this year's Rental Rally, that all attendees are winners.
