Networking Arena Added to SDA Cleaners Showcase 2023

New to this year’s SDA Cleaners Showcase is the Networking Arena, where dry cleaners and coin-operators can discuss pertinent industry topics to improve certain aspects of their business. Dave Coyle of Maverick Dry Cleaners will facilitate this structured networking to glean the best knowledge from attendees so that everyone leaves with new ideas. The Cleaners Showcase is hosted by the Southwest Drycleaners Association (SDA) and will be at the Irving Convention Center, April 28th – 30th, 2023, in Irving, Texas (Dallas area).

“We are excited to add the Networking Arena to the only dry clean and laundry equipment show in 2023. Our industry is filled with innovators and veterans who have created systems and had success in different areas of their business. We can all benefit from learning from each other,” states Amin Bata, Chairman of the SDA Showcase Committee and owner of Pepper Square Cleaners.
