Showing off power distribution at Showman's Show

Power distribution specialist ide Rental will be exhibiting at the Showman’s Show at Newbury Showground, Berkshire, from October 18-19, 2017. The company is promoting its range of rental equipment for event and site power distribution applications following a successful summer of delivering power rental equipment for indoor and outdoor events, music festivals and commercial projects.

The Showman’s Show, now in its thirty third year, attracts nearly 4,500 visitors every year and 350 exhibitors, ranging from electrical contractors, specialists in generators, heating and air conditioning, as well as event organisers specialising in festivals and the live-event industries.

ide Rental will be exhibiting a range of cost-effective power distribution solutions including plug-and-play eventdistribution boards, changeover panels, site distribution boards and H07-RNF multi-core cabling.

“It’s been a great summer for the events industry this year and we’ve seen an increase in demand for power rental equipment,” explained Stuart Barnett, rental manager at ide Rental.

“Site conditions can change very quickly. What a customer asks for when they first contact us may not be the same solution they require 24 hours before a project begins. Our trained personnel understand this and have the expertise to put together a range of options to ensure the customer gets the right solution for their job.

“Due to the advancement in technology and the rise of large multinational companies such as Amazon, people expect things to arrive at the drop of a hat. In our case, customers often approach us at the last minute requesting extra equipment. Fortunately, due to clever strategic investment, we are able to respond and react accordingly with an ‘out the door in 24’ approach, ensuring our customers are always satisfied.”

ide Rental offers a same day and next day delivery service anywhere in the UK from its hire centres in Glasgow, London and The Midlands. The service operates 24/7 and qualified engineers are available to install equipment and for emergency call outs.

With the UK event season drawing to a close, ide Rental will continue to focus on increasing its presence in the European market in 2018.
