For the first time, Korean-language educational sessions will be offered at Clean 2011, which will be held June 6-9 at the Las Vegas Convention Center.
Two hours of education are scheduled on each of three mornings of the Clean Show. The Drycleaners Times, a Korean trade publication, will sponsor the program.
“We wanted to reach out to the Korean community, which is such a large segment of the textile care industry,” said John Riddle, president of Riddle & Association, the company that manages the Clean Show. “When The Drycleaners Times approached us about providing education specifically directed toward the Korean market, we believed it was a win-win opportunity for everyone.”
Korean-language sessions complement a full educational program presented by the show’s sponsors and other textile care associations from the U.S., Canada and Europe. A complete schedule, representing more than 40 hours of education, valued at more than $10,000, is available on the show’s website – cleanshow.com. All sessions will be presented from 8 to 10 a.m. on show days.
On Tuesday and Wednesday, the Korean sessions will include “How to Use Social Marketing” and “Wet and Dry Cleaning Techniques,” respectively. Thursday’s sessions will be presented in both Korean and English. They include “How to Prevent and Solve Soil Pollution” and “How to Approach the Korean Dry Cleaning Market.” The latter session is designed for those seeking to conduct business with the Korean community.
“We hope Korean professionals will take advantage of this opportunity, not only for the education, but also to see virtually all of the working equipment, products and services available to the industry,” Riddle said. “In fact, we have expanded the show floor to accommodate the companies that want to exhibit. The Clean Show is the only place to find everything in one location, and it only happens every two years.”
