The ARA 2018 Rental Show in New Orleans was the busiest since 2006. Over 12,000 people attended. Our team has been an ARA mainstay for over 20 years and many consider this the best show Texada has had.

“There is a tone of optimism in the industry,” said Tony Conant, ARA CEO. “Everybody I spoke to in the construction segment said the show was as good or better than last year, and it was the largest show floor in 20 years. Many said it was one of the best shows they’ve been to.”

We showed our customers “what’s new”, captured the interest of new prospects, and unveiled new concepts.

Here are the TOP FOUR REASONS why we loved this year’s show.

ARA 2018 Vision X Logo

This year we debuted an innovative augmented reality (AR) concept called Vision X. Visitors were able to participate in our Vision X experience for the first time through the use of DAQRI Smart Glasses.

ARA 2018 SRM and FleetLogic Logo

If you made it out to the booth you may have got a sneak peek behind the curtain at our upcoming product releases and updates. Since the ARA in February we have formally announced our newest project RentalLogic, plus released our newest and best FleetLogic patch to date. To learn more about these and more you can visit our product pages.

ARA 2018 Live Product Demonstrations

We were able to demo our products on the show floor for anyone that wanted to see them in action. Are you on the fence about implementing FleetLogic or GateWay? Is there a function in SRM you’d love to know more about? If you didn’t get a chance to stop by, let us know. We are more than happy to set up a time to answer any questions you might have.

Slobo Simic, Texada Consultant, stated, “The ARA this year has been a much bigger success for us at Texada than it has been over the past few years. In my 8 year tenure at Texada, it was by far the best in terms of customer interest in our new products. Fleetlogic was the clear-cut favorite. It’s a slick product that not only solves a problem but has you having fun doing it!”

We were also very excited to kick off our branding refresh project at this year’s show. You may have noticed we introduced new colors and logos. If you want to learn more about it, you can read here.

Thanks to all the folks that stopped by. Hope everyone has an epic 2018!
