Clean 2011 at the Las Vegas Convention Center June 6-9 will offer a comprehensive industry-wide education. More than 35 hours of classroom sessions will be presented by four Clean Show sponsors and six related associations from the USA, Canada and Europe.
Among topics covered in the sessions are environmental issues, water conservation, business management, marketing, new technology, industry standards and regulatory issues.
“Clean 2011’s theme is ‘The Show that Works…for YOU,’ said Jim Thacker, Clean Executive Committee chairman and executive director of Association for Linen Management. “The education you can gain at the Clean Show can work to keep you abreast of new industry developments that can set you apart from your competitors and improve your business.”
Each participating association presents sessions relative to its segment of the textile care industry; however, many sessions are of general interest. The entire schedule with session descriptions will be posted on the show website, www.cleanshow.com, by late January. All sessions at the Clean Show are included in the show’s registration fee of $99 before May 13, 2011, or $149 on site and are open to all attendees.
Clean Show sponsors presenting education are Association for Linen Management, Coin Laundry Association, Drycleaning & Laundry Institute, and Textile Rental Services Association of America. For the first time at Clean ’09, related associations were invited to participate in the program. Clean 2011 sessions will be presented by American Reusable Textile Association, Canadian Cleaners & Launderers Allied Trades Assoc-iation, Cinet with Textile Services Association Ltd., European Textile Services Association, Healthcare Laundry Accreditation Council, and International Association of Healthcare Textile Management.
