April 24, 2015 - The international CONEXPO-CON/AGG construction industries exhibition captured the lead spot in the just-released “Top 250” trade show ranking of North American-based expositions. The Trade Show News Network (TSSN) compiles the annual list, based on net square feet of exhibit space.
The ties that bind Canada’s rental industry were never more evident than at the 2015 rental shows this spring. Friends and family of two late business owners – Dale Pardy of Butler Scaffolding and Rentool and Jim Johnson of Cavalier Industries – were offered condolences and fond memories by their communities amid the usual buying, learning and laughter that accompanies the Canadian Rental Association’s flagship events. 
April 7, 2015 - The Ontario Canadian Rental Association put learning at the forefront of its conference program March 25 at the Holiday Inn in Guelph, Ont. The event drew praise and increased attendance with its full morning of education sessions featuring access to experts that rental store owners would be hard-pressed to find anywhere else.
Saskatoon put its best foot forward at the March 14 Prairie Show, thanks to double-digit temperatures and another strong combined effort by the Alberta, Saskatchewan and Manitoba Canadian Rental Association locals. About 160 attendees made for a lively show floor and over 50 visitors enjoyed a Friday tour of some impressive Saskatoon rental operations. But the big news of the show was the announcement that it would move to Edmonton in 2016.
March 19, 2015 - Trade shows usually remain quiet around opening time – most activity revolves around the various kiosks where sales reps get ready to meet and greet rental business owners, hoping they got in an early “Black Friday” mode to buy the various equipments, ranging from light powertools to heavily-polished lifts and vehicles. But on March 11, this relative sense of calmness contrasted with the excitement of one dynamo who kept running up and down the aisles of Laval’s Plaza Forzani, which held Quebexpo 2015.
March 13, 2015 - Tons of big iron took over the massive International Centre for the 2015 edition of the National Heavy Equipment Show, which took place March 5th and 6th in Mississauga.
March 11, 2015 - Even with greater anticipation and increased expectations for The Rental Show 2015 in New Orleans, the optimism and energy could be felt from all facets of the rental industry throughout the Ernest N. Morial Convention Center from Feb. 22-25.
March 4, 2015 - This Thursday and Friday (March 5th & 6th), tons of big iron will take over the International Centre in Mississauga for the 2015 edition of the National Heavy Equipment Show.
March 3, 2015 - About 100 rental professionals braved the towering snowbanks of Moncton, N.B., to participate in the Canadian Rental Association's Atlantic Regional Trade Show at Casino New Brunswick. Attendees toured booths featuring 42 exhibitors and swapped stories of their struggles with the extreme winter weather that has clobbered the region for the past month. Some significant buying went on, with broad smiles on the faces at the Brooks Construction booth, among others.
Feb. 24, 2015 - The American Rental Association's Rental Show opened on Monday in New Orleans with over 675 companies exhibiting including 75 first-time exhibitors.
