American Furniture Rentals, the parent company of AFR Event Furnishings®, is pleased to announce the acquisition of AGILE Tradeshow Furnishings. AGILE is one of the industry's leading providers of trade show furniture rental.

The synergies between AFR and AGILE strengthen the ability of both companies to focus on their specialty markets in addition to providing a bigger national presence and expanded servicing offerings for their customers.  This strategic move is a big game changer for the event and tradeshow industries.

“The decision to acquire AGILE had major strategic implications for both companies.  This move with an Agile Distribution Center in Chicago will provide AFR a greater presence in the Midwest.  Other Agile Distribution Centers located in the New York Metro and Las Vegas areas will enhance service for the East & West coasts. This also means access to much larger inventory levels in most locations.  As always, AFR is looking for ways to better serve our customers,” commented Neil Scholnick, CEO, American Furniture Rentals

“The integration of AGILE into an AFR Company has opened an exciting new chapter for both our team members and our customers. We have already delivered true value to our clients through our shared offerings and national coverage. We have made great progress in aligning our corporate strategies and developing a culture that best reflects our clients’ needs,” adds Jose Lopez, President & CEO, AGILE Tradeshow and Event Furnishings

With a deep commitment to serving its customer’s needs in the best way possible, AFR is continually evolving with innovative products and superlative customer service.

AFR Event Furnishings/AGILE Trade Show Furnishings provides its customers with distinctive furniture collections, quality products and a promise of service satisfaction.  We are the premiere provider of stylish, quality furnishings and accessory rentals for conferences, meetings, tradeshows and events.  With multiple locations throughout the United States, AFR is ready to serve its clients no matter the place or time.
