The Coin Laundry Association is prepared to “let the good times roll” in New Orleans at this year’s Clean Show and unveiled its final schedule of events for the show. The association also recognized the 2013 signature sponsors who are making the CLA lineup of educational, networking and social receptions possible.
Held June 20 – 22 in New Orleans, the biennial Clean Show is the world’s largest exhibition for the garment and textile care industries and attracts over 10,000 attendees and 400 exhibitors.
“The Clean Show is the best opportunity for professionals in the laundry industry to grow their business in 2013 and beyond,” explains Brain Wallace, CLA President and CEO. “The educational programming alone is more than worth the price of admission, but coupled with tremendous networking opportunities and incredible equipment exhibits – you simply cannot miss Clean 2013.”
As a sponsor of the Clean Show, the CLA will provide more than ten hours of education geared towards making laundry owners more successful and will cover an array of topics pertaining to the coin laundry industry including:
• Coin Laundry Trends for 2013
• Internet Marketing Success Stories for Coin Laundries
• Social Media: Which Tools Should Laundry Owners Embrace?
• Best Practices for Wash Dry Fold and Commercial Accounts
• Advanced Laundry Lease Analysis
• The ABCs for Potential Laundry Owners
• The Keys to Successful Multiple Store Management
Networking and Celebratory Events
To make sure the Clean Show is not all work and no play, the association will be hosting a hospitality reception on Thursday, June 20 and a highly anticipated CLA Mardi Gras Party on Friday. This year’s members-only party will feature:
• Big Band Entertainment
• Open Bar with Mardi Gras-Themed Cocktails
• Hors d’oeuvres
• Strolling entertainers and revelers
• Tarot Card Reader
• Caricature Artist
• And Much More
