Hotel reservations open Aug. 8 for the Clean ’09 trade show in New Orleans June 18-21, 2009. Special rates to meet every pocketbook are available at 18 New Orleans hotels. All are accessible to the French Quarter, the casino, and within 1.5 miles of Morial Convention Center.
The next Texcare Asia is scheduled to take place in Beijing at the China International Exhibition Center from October 28 – 30, 2009.
The fair will build on the success of Texcare Asia 2007, which attracted over 5,700 visitors from 55 countries and regions. More than 135 exhibitors from 17 countries and regions gave distributors, buyers and end-users the opportunity to source a variety of products and services. These included laundry, ironing, dry-cleaning, dying machinery and agents, equipment, textiles and accessories for rental services, laundry and dry-cleaning related measuring instruments.
Clean '05 in Orlando June 23-26 offers a wealth of textile care education both on and off the exhibit floor. Nearly 500 exhibiting companies provide first-hand knowledge of new equipment products, services and technologies in the exhibit hall. Show sponsors conduct seminars covering all segments of the industry in a classroom setting. The popular seminars, offered in the morning, often attract overflow crowds.
After a day filled with state-of-the-art technology and educational opportunities at Clean ’05, there are plenty of ways to unwind in sunny Orlando. And if you’re bringing your family to enjoy a few days in Florida, a few quiet days enjoying the cool aquamarine waters can be offset by the fun and excitement at any one of Orlando’s theme parks. So go ahead, loosen your tie, kick off your heals and dive into all that Orlando has to offer!
Neither Las Vegas’ summer heat nor economic slowdowns could dampen spirits of the 16,526 attendees at the World Educational Congress for Laundering and Drycleaning (Clean ‘03.)
The amount of attendees is almost identical to the 16,546 attendance at Clean ‘01 in New Orleans. Of particular note is that the 11,051 people registered as attendees (non-exhibit booth personnel) was 573 more than at Clean ‘01 representing a 5.5 percent increase in that category. These attendees reviewed the products of 538 exhibiting companies.
