The American Rental Association Reschedules The 2021 ARA Show
The American Rental Association (ARA) has rescheduled The ARA Show™ for Oct. 18-20, 2021, at the Las Vegas Convention Center. The 2021 edition of ARA’s annual trade show and convention was previously scheduled for February in New Orleans. To accommodate the shift to fall 2021, ARA has canceled its 2022 show, which was planned to take place in Anaheim, California. The next show will be ARA’s 65th.
“The safety and vitality of the rental community is our top priority,” ARA CEO Tony Conant said. “We consulted with our members, monitored all the leading sources of health information, and worked closely with convention center partners, the city of New Orleans, and many others in an effort to ensure a clean, safe and essential show in February. When it became clear that the pandemic would not allow us to safely host the type of event our rental community expects, we adapted—just as our industry has throughout a resilient 2020.”
The ARA Show exhibit hall at the Las Vegas Convention Center will be open Oct. 18-20, 2021. Education will be held Sunday, Oct. 17. Registration for the show will open in July and housing reservations through onPeak will open in February.
“We’re all disappointed that we are unable to get together in February, but we’re excited about the planned return to Las Vegas,” Conant said. “ARA is committed to providing a 2021 event with the education, products, networking, and technology our members need to position themselves for the future. The all-around value the show provides will be more important than ever.”
