And, finally, it is happening. North America’s largest event for laundering, drycleaning, textile care services, supplies, and equipment is back after a hiatus due to Covid and the textile services industry is on tenterhooks to catch up on new developments – and with one another in person. The Clean Show, 30 July – 3 August in Atlanta, according to the organisers, creates a platform that brings together all industry professionals to network, educate, and share the latest technologies in the industry.

It is the premier event for the commercial laundering, drycleaning, and textile service industry in the United States/North America, and the event stands out as a beacon, signalling that we are putting the dark days of the pandemic behind us and welcome a new dawn.

ETSA’s secretary general Elena Lai recently pointed to the importance of international exhibitions for networking, communication and synergies telling delegates at the recent ETSA Congress: “All of you can come and exchange views and information and make business. Go to exhibitions!”

Look forward to live demonstrations, networking opportunities, and educational sessions where industry experts will share the latest technological advancements hitting the industry, trend predictions, strategies to grow and expand into new markets, and insights on how to stay ahead of the competition.

The Clean Show is organised under the Texcare umbrella in collaboration with five industry-leading US associations: Association for Linen Management (ALM), Coin Laundry Association (CLA), Dry-cleaning & Laundry Institute (DLI), Textile Care Allied Trades Association (TCATA), and Textile Rental Services Association of America (TRSA).

National trade associations from around the world will be visiting with their officials and members taking part in debates, discussions and ogthr events, notably those fielded by the North American textile rental association, TRSA, which has organised a raft of learning opportunities around the show.

Specialised sessions throughout the week provide opportunities for business operators to educate themselves and their teams with topics like Hygienically Clean and Clean Green Certification programs, global industry trends, how to protect your customers, employees and business assets with contracts and more.
