The Textile Rental Services Association (TRSA) second annual Canadian Production Summit and plant tours will take place on 11-13 September at the Hotel Omni Mont-Royal in Montréal, Canada. This year TRSA is partnering with the Association des Locateurs de Linge du Quebec (ALLQ) to provide a robust agenda to enhance attendee knowledge and skills.

The agenda includes general and breakout sessions on management, regulatory, environmental and safety issues, as well as an interactive panel discussion that will focus on the opportunities and challenges facing the operator market. In addition to the educational sessions on 12 September there will be plenty of time for networking, including receptions on 11 and 12 September.

Bruce Lourie, the summit’s keynote speaker, is a well-known leader and author in the environmental sector whose presentation will focus on environmental entrepreneurship. Lourie’s recent books include Slow Death by Rubber Duck and Toxin Toxout.

Plant tours on 13 September will provide insight into both private and public healthcare sector laundries – Buanderie Blanchelle, St-Jean, and Hôpital du Sacré Coeur, North-Island.

ALLQ members will receive TRSA member rates for the event. Registration information and the brochure in both English and French languages are available online at
