The 100 trade shows, which took place in the U.S. in 2021, were ranked by net square feet of paid exhibit space.

“We love The ARA Show as it’s a blend of homecoming and the Super Bowl for rental professionals. It’s very rewarding to be recognized by Trade Show Executive,” says Tony Conant, ARA CEO.

“Our 2021 show ranked 17th on the Gold 100 list of the largest trade shows. It’s our highest ranking ever and a testament to the work that the American Rental Association (ARA) events team does every year executing this event. I was both proud and humbled to receive this acknowledgement from TSE,” he says.

“It was an honor for The ARA Show to be recognized as a Gold 100 honoree. Executing successful live events in 2021 wasn’t without its challenges but ARA is extremely fortunate to have a dedicated and extraordinarily resilient events team that is passionate about producing great events for our members. A special thanks to our exhibitors, attendees and partners for their support,” says Christine Hammes, ARA vice president, association services.

ARA’s events team is currently working on The ARA Show 2023, which will be held Feb. 11-15, in Orlando. Click here to learn more.
