The dates for Clean 2013 in New Orleans have been rescheduled to June 20-22, making it a Thursday-Saturday show.
“This allows attendees to return home on Sunday to start their work week on Monday, or gives them an opportunity stay and enjoy a day in New Orleans after the show,” said David Cotter, chairman of Clean 2013 and CEO of Textile Care Allied Trades Association.
The dates for the 2013 show originally announced at Clean 2011 were Friday-Sunday, June 21-23. The three-day format in 2013, the first since 1981, is in response to exhibitor and attendee feedback. The show will run three full days rather than close early on the last day to allow time for everyone to fully experience the exhibits.
Future shows for 2015 in Atlanta and 2017 in Las Vegas also were announced as three-day shows, but Cotter said the show could return to four days if that proves to work better for exhibitors and attendees.
Clean 2011 in Las Vegas drew 11,200 people, a 13 percent increase over Clean ’09. In addition to attendees from all 50 states and Washington D.C., Clean 2011 had a strong international presence, with attendees from 87 other countries.
The Clean Show attracts every facet of textile care and textile rental services – retail, commercial, coin/card, institutional and industrial laundering, and drycleaning.
At Clean 2011, a number of new products were displayed and the educational program drew more attendees than in several past years.
“People were in a buying and learning mode,” said John Riddle, president of Riddle & Associates, the show’s management company.
The Clean Show is sponsored by the Coin Laundry Association, the Association for Linen Management, the Drycleaning & Laundry Institute, the Textile Care Allied Trades Association and the Textile Rental Services Association of America.
