Wins Apex Award for Scooter and Wheelchair Rentals
Most Improved Revenue in Mobility
Rental Services at the Kansas State Fair
FL - Scootaround Inc. has received the Apex Award for Most
Improved Revenue at the Kansas State Fair. Providing scooter
and wheelchair rentals for the 350,000+ person fair, Scootaround
was able to meet the event requirements while at the same
time improving on their previous year's award winning revenues
for the show.
"Our traveling fleet of scooters is
operated by the most experienced group of professionals in
the mobility equipment industry" says Chad Stott, Manager
of Scootaround's Corporate Services Division. "We're
very proud of our team members and are particularly pleased
to have an organization like the Kansas State Fair recognize
their contribution in a tangible way."
Scootaround attributes their success to
their robust Central Reservation Program whereby Fair patrons
can reserve their equipment up to one year in advance, ensuring
them of wheelchair or scooter availability. The respective
fair is then assured that the needs of their Special Needs
customers are met completely.
"Scootaround's event revenue surpassed
last year's totals by 27.14%." said Sue Stoeklein, Commercial
Exhibits Director for the Kansas State Fair. "We do monitor
these items closely and look forward to your participation
again in 2011."
Scootaround supports large events across
the nation each month, many with attendances of more than
100,000 people. With 350,000+ people in attendance at the
Kansas State Fair each year, Scootaround's team of Mobility
Specialists fields reservations on a nationwide basis. "Our
primary goal at each event is to provide for the needs of
all attendees that require mobility assistance -- we want
them to fully enjoy their event." said Stott.
Scootaround's membership in IAFE (International
Association of Fairs and Expositions) has allowed many fair
managers to take advantage of the Special Needs services available
to them and to elevate their level of service to disabled
patrons. Improved service is good news for everyone from satisfied
attendees through to increased show revenues.
As Scootaround supports hundreds of fairs
and events with a projected 20 million+ attendees in 2011,
they will do so with a full suite of mobility solutions including
scooter and wheelchair rentals, assistive staffing and attendee
shuttling for all types of events including conventions, meetings,
seminars, and expositions.
