ORLANDO, FL - March 4, 2009 - Scootaround
Inc. recently signed two multi-year contracts to become the
exclusive provider of accessible services at both the Las
Vegas Convention Center (LVCC) and Sands Expo and Convention
Center in Las Vegas, Nevada. With the addition of these two
facilities, Scootaround now directly supports the nation's
five largest convention facilities.
"Enhancing the convention experience
for all attendees is our goal." said Tim Scott, Vice
President of Sales and Marketing. "We service dozens
of large events each month, many with 50 to 100,000 attendees
each. It's rewarding that convention center managers have
recognized the need to partner with us, the industry leader
in mobility rental solutions".
Along with the LVCC and the Sands Expo,
Scootaround also services Chicago's McCormick Place (the nation's
largest center), the Orange Country Convention Center (2nd
largest) and the Georgia World Congress Center. Scootaround's
onsite services include customized rentals programs that provide
scooters that reside at each facility on a permanent basis
along with qualified staff to run rental programs at larger
Scootaround's Corporate Event Services division
facilitates the on-ground service giving event planners full
access to Scootaround's "Total Mobility Management"
solution -- a comprehensive list of services that includes
scooter and wheelchair rentals, assistive staffing and attendee
shuttling for all types of events from conventions and meetings
to seminars and expositions.
"The convention industry continues
to acknowledge and support the needs of the disabled and those
with mobility issues." said Scootaround President and
COO Kerry Renaud. "We are particularly proud to be their
company of choice and we are continuing to work hard at providing
a "one-stop" solution for these first-rate establishments."
With the results of the Travel Industry

is consistently developing programs and services to meet the
growing needs of each facility.
