Clean Show: The Sure Bet

Ian P. Murphy |

LAS VEGAS — With 435 exhibitors and a seminar schedule designed to meet new realities, the 2011 Clean Show looks like a winner.
It may seem hard to believe, but two years have come and gone, and it is once again time for Clean—the industry’s biggest and best show. And while it may have been a difficult two years for many in the industry and the country, next week’s show, kicking off on Monday, is shaping up to be huge.
Visitors to Clean 2011 will find a streamlined show—one that has retooled for the new economic realities and the progressive operators thriving in them. While the show’s footprint is slightly smaller, there will still be plenty of exhibitors offering solutions for every issue and opportunity a drycleaning plant might face.
The show has expanded its educational program to include Korean-language and international sessions. And the Las Vegas Convention Center show floor will be business-friendly, too, featuring a Network Café where attendees can charge phones while networking with colleagues.
Smartphone users can get Clean at their fingertips by using the free ChirpE application, which synchs with the planning tools found at the show’s website.
On-site registration is available for $149 throughout the show, and includes admission to all sessions and exhibits. Clean 2011 is "The Show That Works," and for drycleaners who wish to succeed in business, it’s the only sure bet in Vegas this month.
