Feb. 8, 2010 – Thousands of rental professionals have converged on Orlando, Fla., with a singular purpose in mind. They’re in town to attend The Rental Show, running February 7 – 10 at the Orange County Convention Center.

There’s plenty to see. With over 600 exhibiting companies, it’s almost impossible for any one person to see everything. Although the official attendance numbers have not been released yet, there are definitely more people here than attended the 2009 show in Atlanta.

The first day of the The Rental Show had plenty to offer for those in the event rental side of the industry, as well as general interest business sessions, such as “Extreme Leadership at Work and Beyond.” The Events and Tents portion of the show got underway with an opening session entitled “Behind the Magic: Disney’s Approach to Inspiring Creativity.” It was a fascinating inside look at how things are done at one of the largest and most successful entertainment companies in the world.

Monday, February 8 started off with the Canadian Rental Association Annual General Meeting, followed by Regional Breakfasts. These presented a great opportunity for networking.

The keynote session also took place on February 8. The keynote speaker was Pat Williams, who spoke on “Creating Quality: 10 Keys to Creating a Quality Organization.”

There was a strong Canadian contingent at The Rental Show this year, and nowhere was this more evident than at the Canadian Hospitality Night, held at the DoubleTree Hotel. There were many familiar faces in attendance, as well as a few new ones.

The Rental Show continues Tuesday and Wednesday. In addition to the action that can be found on the show floor, a full slate of seminars is planned for both days.

Watch for more on The Rental Show in the next issue of Canadian Rental Service magazine.
