LONG BEACH, Calif. — Organizers of Fabricare 2012, the 86th annual California Cleaners Association (CCA) Educational Convention and Trade Show, are making final preparations for the July 13-15 event.
The Long Beach (Calif.) Convention Center will play host.
James Peuster, “The Route Pro,” will present a seminar on July 13 before the exhibit hall opens on July 14-15.
The CCA Board of Directors have voted to allow Fabricare attendees (dry cleaners only) to visit the exhibit hall at no cost this year. Previously, there was a $15 fee to view the exhibits. The CCA website quotes CCA President Bobby Patel as calling the decision “an economic stimulus to the Fabricare attendees.”
In addition to the trade show, Fabricare offers educational seminars covering a variety of topics. Past seminars have included state and national legislative updates, management courses, human resources, print marketing, routes, leases, contamination, customer service, e-marketing, technology, security, and an industry outlook.
