ARA Spring Social Event at Yankee Stadium

The American Rental Association (ARA) of New York’s annual spring social event was once again a tremendous success. This year’s event took place at Yankee Stadium as the Bronx Bombers lost to the Mariners 6-3.
The evening was a great networking event as members from all across the state, some as far as 5 hours away, came to share their industry knowledge and experience. Our very own CEO Anthony Durante, VP of ARA’s Board of Directors, was on hand to root for his favorite team and to welcome new and old members alike who were attending their first ARA
networking event.
“Our local NY events are a great way to meet new people, catch up with old friends, share ideas, take in a great game and most of all mingle with like-minded professionals in the rental business”, said Anthony.

Everyone on hand was in agreement that next year they’d love to come back to the stadium and do it all over again. Thanks again to the ARA for all they do for Durante Rentals and all their members in New York and the entire country.

Westchester Digital Summit
Durante Rentals was well represented at the 3rd annual Westchester Digital Summit. Our Director of Marketing, Adam Zunic, and IT Manager, Kenneth Tso, joined 350 other like-minded professionals at the Ritz Carlton in Westchester to participate in this “Must-Attend Marketing Conference for Leaders in 2014”.

“For me, this was a once in a lifetime opportunity to mingle with and learn from some of the sharpest minds in the Digital Marketing industry”, said Adam Zunic.
On hand to lend their knowledge, ideas and future industry forecasts were such well respected and well-recognized names in the digital media industry like Brett Wein from Facebook, Andrew Goldman from Linkedin, Gabe Goodwin from ESPN, Peter Vlastelica from Fox Sports, Linda Boff from GE, Tessa Gould from the Huffington Post and many more. The highlight of the day was the Keynote address given by none other than Gary Vaynerchuk, CEO of Vayner Media and star of Wine Media Library TV.
“WDS2 was a great experience – to be able to hear from like-minded professionals who look at the present and future of the industry was inspiring. I’m already looking forward to next year”, said Kenny Tso.
Some of the topics up for discussion were: Creating a Winning Social Strategy, Navigating the Evolving Digital Landscape, Using Digital Content to Build Trust and Influence Decision Makers, and much more. See the full agenda.
Special thanks to conference organizer Chris Dessi from Silverback Social and co-host John Zanzarella of Zanzarella Marketing Consultants.
Section 179 Extension Takes Another Step Forward
The US Tax  Code section (179), has been passed by the House of Representatives. It still has to go to the Senate and then be approved by the President. In the past, Washington has approved Section 179 with two-year extensions (meaning it expires every two years and needs to be renewed). It expired in 2013 and was not renewed. Part of what we fought for was not only for approval but to make it a permanent section of the Tax Code.

Although it still needs to be approved by other parties, it is a great first step and we’re proud that Durante played a part in getting this done. This bill allows small businesses like Durante Rentals to invest more money in infrastructure, equipment, and staff. Without this approval, most small businesses would be facing a much larger tax burden.

Imagine what this would do to small businesses where instead of growing and investing in their business, and this country, they are forced to downsize just to pay Washington. Read more about Section 179.

Solar Roads: Renewable Energy or Pipe Dream?
There is not the slightest indication that nuclear energy will ever be obtainable. It would mean that the atom would have to be shattered at will.” – Albert Einstein
The basic premise of the project is that if all the roads in the country were “paved” with solar panels they would produce more energy than the country consumes in a year. Read More

Manhattan “Flying Saw” Incident is Highly Unusual 

While accidents involving circular saw blades failing can happen, it is highly unusual for a blade to become dislodged from its saw and fly off into the air, says one industry expert, referring to such an incident that occurred at a Manhattan job site on May 27.

The 3 foot diameter blade appears to be from a slab saw, or flat saw, which is typically used to cut thick concrete structures and roadways and is tough enough to cut through steel reinforcements…
