Rental World/Backshop, Uniform Gallery

Backshop Exhibit

The Rental World/Backshop, Uniform Gallery space combined focus on the specialty backshop and rental shop.

Rental World/Backshop & Uniform Gallery presented by SAM Magazine, featured over 50 exhibitors, showcasing the latest hardgoods rental equipment, displays and accessories, backshop tools and uniforms for buyers, resorts and media and captured an exclusive view of these key categories.

'It's invaluable to see all rental offerings at one time with the Rental World/Backshop booth.  It makes my job much easier and enables me to do a better job." – Bob Neumann, Terry Peak Ski Area

The 2014 Rental World focused on the specialty rental shop and Backshop worked with the tools and tech of tuning. This venue exclusive to backshop created and helped educate buyers on the "how to" featuring products that make customers’ experience in the shop and on the hill a great one.

Rental World/Backshop hosted seminars focused on putting performance into rental along with discussing success and fun in rental for kids.  Both discussions had great attendance and engagement with attendees to receive further knowledge of the rental category.

 “The main reason I wanted to come to the SIA show was to visit Rental World.  I've sent other people to check it out in past years, but it is what pushed me over the edge to come this year.” – Adrian Spiker, Deep Creek Marina, MD

As they say, it’s all about “Service, Service, Service”. The Backshop section offered a preview of the latest in backshop tools and tuning to assure your customers have the best tuned equipment. Giving the customer - the skier/rider, a great experience is half the work of getting them back out on the hill.

The Rental World portion highlighted the innovations and technologies in rental equipment and accessories helping to get a lead in this important customer return market.

"Rental World/Backshop, Uniform Gallery is an amazing initiative at the SIA Show because it allows us to show our dedication to the rental business in a professional way, and amongst all other brands’ rental products so potential customers get a clear and concise overview of what the market has to offer. In our opinion the rental business is one of the core initiatives in attracting new customers and retaining them to snowboarding, and this exhibit is a great way to spread this message." – Lucien Vink, Product Manager, Flow Snowboarding

Uniform Gallery showcased what’s new in uniforms to make sure the best impressions are made to your customers.

“The Show was awesome! Tons of traffic and excitement, which we were really excited about. We’ll be back every year moving forward. We’ve gotten new business from being here, and as a launch year, it’s been absolutely great.”
Tracy Bordwell, Creative and Technical Design, Fate Clothing

"As a snow-sports journalist, I find the SIA Snow Show to be an invaluable resource. There's nowhere else I can survey all of the latest gear and get face time with interesting suppliers, retailers, athletes, and other industry movers all in one place."
Sam Bass, editor-in-chief, Skiing Magazine

“You have everyone in one place, so you can see everything you need and get an idea of where trends are going. It’s a good overview of what’s going on in the industry. Last year we picked up a couple new lines that I wouldn’t have necessarily picked up had I not gone to SIA. The Show gets you psyched.”
Jim Slanetz, Owner, Board Bin, ID

“From our standpoint, our line has gotten larger each year, and the exposure at the Show is huge. There are so many people here and this Show seems to grow every year, it’s really beneficial for our sales reps to be here.”
Carrie Crogan, Trade Show Coordinator, Under Armour
