Arkansas Rental Dealers Association (ARDA) Spring Convention
and Trade Show begins today (Tuesday) at the Comfort Inn and
Suites in Little Rock, Arkansas. Association President Joe
Burchfield said 40 attendees are expected.
ARDA changed the show's format to encourage vendor
participation by reducing the expense of showing product. Under the new format, product for the tradeshow will be
purchased by Arkansas dealers in advance. The merchandise will
be delivered to stores as usual. Store personnel will deliver
the merchandise and set up each booth, as well as tear down
after the show.
One of the highlights of the convention will be naming of the
ARDA Store Manager of the Year. Teresa Hardin of Don's EZ Pay and
Ed Martin of
Furniture and Appliances Now (FAN) shared the award in 2006. John Blair
(M&B Jewelry) was the 2006 ARDA Vendor Of The Year.
