American Rental Trade Show

Spring is in the air and that means tradeshow season. Here at Exeter Events and Tents we are always seeking new ways to bring the best products and customer service to our clients. Last week I attended my 25th buying show at the American Rental Association.  The show floor was alive with tent companies purchasing the latest in special events equipment.   The consensus was this is going to be a very busy bridal year.  Weddings are booking very early and dates are filling up!

I spent a lot of time looking at all the new silverware and glassware pattern .  The glassware by Riedel was stunning.  It is lighter and more elegant than conventional rental glassware and is a well known brand in the wine industry.  Many of you folks who cruise have probably already been introduced to it in the wine tasting events held on the major cruise lines. Stay tuned I hope to purchase it for this summer season!

Here is a summary of other exciting new items at the show:

The talk of the show was the new tents presented by Aztec.  They have designed a sailcloth frame tent.   It was the prettiest tent at the show.  It is a manufacturing marvel, joining the engineering of a frame tent with the nautical soft flowing lines of a sailcloth tent.   Sailcloth has become the hottest product in the tent industry over the past few years.

I spent a lot of time with Drake Manufacturing who was displaying Chivari chairs in fruitwood, gold and clear.  Natural garden chairs were seen in most booths for a more natural organic wedding look and feel.

Tent wares of Londonderry N.H. had oriental and Japanese lanterns in all the latest colors including tangerine, fuchsia and white.  We utilize their product for custom tent lighting at all of our events.

The hottest linen colors displayed by A1 Tablecloth Company for 2010 are a navy blue and white combo for this summer’s fashions.   The most popular way to add an additional splash of color is to add table runners in contrasting colors and fabrics.    Tablecloths in taffeta and satins graced many displays.

We will be e-blasting color photos and detailed descriptions of all the new products we will be carrying very soon.
