Rental World/Backshop, Uniform Gallery

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

The 2015 Rental World/Backshop & Uniform Gallery presented by SAM Magazine, featured over 50 exhibitors, showcasing the latest hard goods rental equipment, displays and accessories, backshop tools and uniforms for buyers, resorts and media and capture an exclusive view of these key categories.

This showcase helps buyers narrow their choices and makes the buying process simpler. It also provides a respite from the intense whirlwind that the buying process can be, where buyers can make decisions in a more relaxed setting. This is especially important for rental buyers, as their success impacts the introduction of newcomers and therefore the future of skiing and snowboarding. But it’s also useful for backshop and uniform buyers.

"SAM has been proud to partner with SIA to create and host the Rental World/Backshop and Uniform Gallery for more than 15 years. It has truly become the one-stop shop for buyers to gain a quick overview of trends and products." Oliva Rowan, Publisher, SAM Magazine

“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
