2024 Lift and Access ARA Show Review

The 2024 American Rental Association (ARA) Show, hosted in the historically rich and vibrant New Orleans, was a landmark event for the rental sector, particularly emphasizing the pivotal role of lift and access equipment within the industry.

The convention center buzzed with excitement as rental business owners and operators from around the world gathered to explore the latest in aerial work platforms, telescopic handlers, and scissor lifts, all tailored to meet the dynamic needs of rental fleets.

The focus was clear: to arm rental companies with the tools and technologies necessary to elevate their service offerings and operational efficiency.

Exhibitors unveiled new equipment and services designed not just for performance but with rental market demands in mind—durability for high-utilization environments, ease of maintenance, and features that enhance rental appeal, such as modular designs for easy transport and setup.

This year's ARA Show showcased the latest in Lift and Access equipment and fostered a community-centric environment where rental businesses could share experiences, challenges, and solutions, overall strengthening the foundation of the rental industry as a whole.
