The Drycleaning and Laundry Institute and the National Cleaners Association will hold the "Five-Star Brainstorming" conference at the Now Onyx Resort in Punta Cana, Dominican Republic, on 13-15 January 2017.

The event allows drycleaners to network and DLI said that the opportunity for informal discussions is important for many of those that attend.

Morning seminars this year will include keynote speaker Ken Schmidt, former Harley-Davidson communications director; Lorynn Divita, author of Fashion Forecasting on the Present & Future of Fashion; and Larry Oxenham from the American Society for Asset Protection.
