The Canadian Rental Association held its first National Rental Show Jan. 31 through Feb. 2 at the Shaw Centre in Ottawa.
The event started with a day of conference sessions. Topics included building an effective staff and cybersecurity. A panel discussion roamed all over the rental industry, including some detailed conversation about how to use a Tent Ox.
A reception and awards presentations followed the conference day. CRA CEO Nathalie McGregor and president-elect Brett Armstrong of Double R Rentals handed out the honours. Pascal Leclerc of Cisolift got the Award of Excellence for suppliers (top left); Blake Menning of All Choice won the Award of Excellence for rental stores (top right); Rakesh Singh of Little Electric took home the Newbie Award for new members (lower left); and Mike Maltby of Ingersoll Rent-All was recognized with the Award of Distinction for his contributions to the association.
The next two days featured equipment exhibits by 60 exhibitors at the Shaw Centre next door.
