In Brief: Rental's Discounting Eases, Tabletop Gallery 2012 Competition Opens

Fewer rental operators discounting The pressure on rental companies to discount seems to be easing somewhat. According to the latest online poll from Special Events, 29 percent of respondents say they have been forced to discount some of their rates and continue to do so. This is in contrast to our poll one year ago, which showed nearly two in three rental operators were discounting rates. In this summer's poll, 22 percent said they discounted rates last year but brought them back up this year. Another 22 percent said they are now discounting but plan to bring rates back up in 2012. Twenty-five percent of respondents say they have not discounted their rates. See the whole story in the September-October issue of Special Events
