NEW ORLEANS — Exhibit sales open this month for Clean ’09, the textile-care industry’s premier trade show, scheduled for June 18-21, 2009, in New Orleans.
Show managers Riddle & Associates will begin mailing Clean ’09 exhibitor packets to every company that exhibited at Clean ’07 in Las Vegas in early May. Exhibitors at other recent Clean Shows and companies who have expressed interest in exhibiting will receive a prospectus later in the month, the company says.
“New Orleans is ready for us, and we are expecting to have a great show,” says John Riddle, president of Riddle & Associates.
Formally known as the World Educational Congress for Laundering & Drycleaning, Clean is the world’s largest exhibition of laundry and drycleaning equipment. Clean ’07 drew nearly 15,000 people from 82 countries and the United States.
“Virtually every product and service used in the textile-care industry will be on display at Clean ’09,” Riddle says. “Buyers and sellers can meet face-to-face, and buyers can see and compare actual working equipment and products.
“Clean Show participation for exhibitors and attendees goes beyond just the benefits of being at the show. [Participation] supports the entire textile-care industry through programs of the show’s sponsoring associations that include research, education, government relations and more.”
Clean’s six sponsors are the Association for Linen Management (ALM), the Coin Laundry Association (CLA), the Drycleaning & Laundry Institute (DLI), the Textile Care Allied Trades Association (TCATA), the Textile Rental Services Association of America (TRSA), and the Uniform & Textile Service Association (UTSA).
Clean ’09 will feature special rates at 18 New Orleans hotels. Attendees can reserve rooms through Clean’s New Orleans Housing Bureau starting in August, and attendee registration begins in November.
