New Orleans is back in business . . . and attendees of The Rental Show want to join the party.
The February 2012 edition of The Rental Show, newly planned for the Ernest N. Morial Convention Center in New Orleans, will replace a previously scheduled date in Atlanta, says the American Rental Association (ARA). The annual Rental Show was last scheduled to be held in New Orleans in 2007, but Hurricane Katrina recovery efforts forced a move to Atlanta.
"The association listened to both attendees and exhibitors, and the consensus of the ARA board of directors was that returning to New Orleans was a high priority," says Christine Wehrman, ARA chief executive officer. "ARA was able to meet this request and schedule a return to a location that has hosted The Rental Show six previous times. We're looking forward to returning to the city.
"Due to the rescheduling for 2007, The Rental Show has been to Atlanta frequently in recent years," Wehrman says.
