Press release:

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 largest U.S. center), the Orange Country Convention Center (America's 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 events.

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 including conventions, meetings, 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 Association of America's (TIA) recent study showing that a potential 2.2 million convention attendees may have required mobility assistance at a convention last year, Scootaround is consistently developing programs and services to meet the growing needs of each facility.
