ARA Cancels Rental Innovation Conference & Exhibits

ARA Rental Innovation Conference & Exhibits CancelledThe American Rental Association (ARA) has decided to cancel its Rental Innovation Conference & Exhibits event scheduled for March 9 and 10, 2022 in Grapevine, Texas.

The ARA came to this due to a variety of factors. These include the continued spread of the omicron variant of the coronavirus (COVID-19), and both transmission and positivity rates in Dallas Country currently being categorized as “High.” Other factors in the decision were the return of essential travel only restrictions for many large organizations, equipment availability issues, as well as parts and staff shortages.

The ARA is evaluating options to deliver the education program portion of the conference at a future event. Those who had already registered for the Rental Innovation Conference & Exhibits will receive a full refund.
