Attending Clean ’03 in Las Vegas will be a worthwhile journey for all attendees. They will be able to see virtually all of the products and services available to the entire textile care industry under one roof. This premier textile care expo being held August 11-14 is a unique opportunity that comes around only once every two years.“This show is definitely the best place in the world to stay in touch with what is happening in the textile care industry,” said John Riddle, president of Riddle & Associates, Clean ‘03’s management company. “It covers all segments of textile care from single-owner, coin-operated laundry and drycleaning establishments to giant industrial and institutional laundries.”
In addition to comparing the products of different companies first hand and meeting face to face with manufacturers, attendees can explore aisles of products, that can make their businesses more efficient. More than 400 companies will be represented on the exhibit floor.
An educational program targeted toward each sponsor’s particular segment of the industry is another good reason to be at Clean ’03. Attendees can get answers to their own specific questions from industry leaders.
Clean ’03 offers an opportunity to compare notes with industry peers, visit with industry friends and meet new people from around the world.
Breaking again from the traditional format of an opening general session and keynote speaker, Clean ’03 will begin its educational program on Monday, the first day of the show. Attendee registration will be open on Sunday from 1 to 5 p.m. so seminar attendees can go directly to the 8 a.m. session of their choice on Monday.
On-site registration will open at 7 a.m. on Monday and 7:30 subsequent show days, closing at 4:30 p.m. Monday through Wednesday, and 2 p.m. on Thursday. Attendees are encouraged to pre-register by July 10 by mail, fax, or web. Pre-registration is $45 a person; on-site registration is $70. People who have pre-registered will receive badges in the mail. They can exchange the badge stub for a badge holder and Show Directory at several kiosks at the convention center.
A ceremony to open the exhibit floor will take place at 10 a.m. on Monday. The exhibits will open at 9 a.m. on subsequent days and will close at 5 p.m., 3 p.m. on Thursday.
Attendees needing wheelchairs or who have other special needs should contact show management for information:
Officially titled the World Educational Congress for Laundering and Drycleaning, the biennial Clean Show is the world's premier showcase for equipment, products, supplies and services for the textile care industry.
“The journey to Clean ’03 will benefit laundry owners, plant operators, technicians, institutional laundry managers, distributors, consultants and buyers,” said Riddle.
The Clean Show is sponsored jointly by six national industry associations: Coin Laundry Association, International Fabricare Institute, National Association of Institutional Linen Management, Textile Care Allied Trades Association, Textile Rental Services Association of America, and Uniform & Textile Service Association..
