John Riddle, Clean Show Manager and President of Riddle & Associates comments on this year’s show. “I am constantly asked why should I come to the Clean Show or why should I exhibit. There are many reasons. You will see the newest equipment, learn about new services, see working demonstrations and have access to outstanding industry education. In today’s world of electronic communication it is nice to have the opportunity to communicate with someone eye-to-eye, face-to-face and talk with them about industry issues. It’s a great chance to renew old friendships and make new ones. These are just several reasons I think making this trip is worth the time, effort and money. We encourage you to BE THERE and take advantage of this opportunity.”
The World Educational Congress for Laundering and Drycleaning, the show’s formal name, is sponsored jointly by five national industry associations: Association for Linen Management, Coin Laundry Association, Drycleaning & Laundry Institute, Textile Care Allied Trades Association, and Textile Rental Services Association of America. The Clean Show is the world’s largest exhibition for the textile care industry that features live demonstrations of equipment and products.
Clean 2011 in Las Vegas drew approximately 11,000 people from 87 countries. There were over 400 exhibiting companies.
