For over 30 years the Canadian Rental Mart has been Canada’s biggest expo of rental-ready equipment for construction,
homeowner DIY, landscaping and events. Each year, the show welcomes rental store owners to find the friends and fleet they
need to make their businesses succeed. The year 2020 was supposed to be a Rental Mart year but couldn’t happen due to the unwelcome guest in our lives, COVID-19. The Canadian Rental Service team, Canadian Rental Mart’s organizers, have therefore decided to take the show online in 2021.
Canada’s Big Ass Rental Show is coming to your screens on March 24, 2021. In the past, our attendees have typically joined us from the GTA. In 2021, Canadian Rental Mart excited to welcome rental operators from coast-to-coast using the show’s virtual platform, pheedloop.
As always, the 2021 show promises to bring great value to equipment rental store owner/operators, distributors and even home renovation contractors. Adam Snook of Just Bins, Blake Menning of All Choice Rentals, Jeff Campbell of St Thomas Rent-All and Paul Van Staveren of Stayner Rental will come together for a Cross-Canada Rental Panel to talk about what’s going on in rental stores and on construction sites across the country. The discussion will touch on tech, markets, trends, threats, opportunities and more. The pandemic might come up.
Ken McDougall, president of Skyjack will be presenting the keynote on what the events of 2020 have meant for the Canadian Rental industry and how he sees the future for 2021 and beyond. McDougall will also present some key insights into new developments at Skyjack.
The virtual Trade Show will be bringing the latest equipment for the rental industry from top suppliers. Virtual networking opportunities will be in abundance for all attendees.
