LAS VEGAS — All available exhibit space for the upcoming Clean Show here June 5-8 in the Las Vegas Convention Center has been sold, reports show management company Riddle & Associates.
The Clean Show—formally the World Educational Congress for Laundering and Drycleaning—brings together all segments of the textile care industry every other year. It celebrates its 40-year anniversary in 2017.
“We are excited to have such great participation for this historic event,” says Mary Scalco, Clean Show chairman and CEO of co-sponsor Drycleaning and Laundry Institute (DLI). “Though it’s been close in other years, the last time exhibit space was completely sold out was in 1997.”
Attendee pre-registration is, according to Riddle, also up “substantially” from the 2015 show in Atlanta that drew 11,264.
The Las Vegas show will offer attendees more than 481 exhibits and 23 different educational sessions covering every facet of textile care. Total exhibit space is 227,006 net square feet.
There is still time to register to attend Clean ’17. Discounted pre-registration is available online at www.cleanshow.com through Wednesday, May 31. Cost is $119 per person for members of any one of the show’s sponsoring associations, $149 for non-members. Sponsors are Association for Linen Management (ALM), Coin Laundry Association (CLA), DLI, Textile Care Allied Trades Association (TCATA) and TRSA, the association for the linen, uniform and facility services industry.
After the May 31 cutoff, attendees will have to register onsite at the Convention Center at a cost of $169 per person regardless of association membership.
In all cases, the registration fee covers entrance to the exhibit hall all four days of the show and admittance to any educational sessions.
