"We've been exhibiting with The Clean Show for 10 years and each year it increasingly becomes the best venue to meet all of the industry in one place to showcase our products. It's been a tremendous show and we really enjoy being here with all of our clients," says Clean Show exhibitor, Pamela Simonetti of Braun.
According to show management, more than 11,000 registrants were present at the biennial event covering 224,500 net square feet of exhibit space surpassing the square footage of 195,140 that was previously recorded at the last New Orleans edition of The Clean Show in 2013. Numerous advancements in machinery, software, and services were presented from over 430 exhibitors from around the world including new exhibitors added to this year’s roster.
“The Clean Show has proven once again to be the ideal exposition for industry leaders to find the latest innovations in textile care, ranging from industrial machinery and conveyor equipment to computer software and business systems. From what we’ve heard from exhibitors and attendees alike, the show was a great success, generating valuable leads while learning how the various products and services can help their businesses thrive in today’s highly competitive market. We can’t wait to host the show in Atlanta in 2021.” said Greg Jira, Show Director.
Show highlights included 30 hours of educational seminars organized by the top five collaborating associations in the industry which include Association for Linen Management (ALM), Coin Laundry Association (CLA), Drycleaning & Laundry Institute (DLI), Textile Care Allied Trades Association (TCATA), and Textile Rental Services Association of America (TRSA).
A few highly anticipated general sessions included The Future of Marketing: How to Build a Brand That Sells presented by international speaker, Brian Rashid. Attendees were able to get an in-depth understanding of the advantages of utilizing social media tools to promote their businesses and ensure the cost-effectiveness of a small advertising budget.
A popular session that created a huge buzz amongst attendees was Business Apps to Make Life Easier. The session involved a great deal of crowd interaction as the discussion focused on efficient mobile applications that help streamline the average business owners’ professional and personal lives.
Since The Clean Show is now under the ownership of Messe Frankfurt Inc., the event will complement the global network of textile care expositions such as Texcare International, the leading trade fair held in Frankfurt, Germany since 1956.
