ATLANTA — When exhibit booth sales for Clean 2019 in New Orleans open this spring, exhibitors will see a general contractor they may be familiar with from previous Clean Shows.
Shepard Exposition Services will be the general contractor at the Ernest N. Morial Convention Center in New Orleans for the June 20-23, 2019, exhibition, according to Joseph Ricci, chair of the Clean Executive Committee and president of TRSA, the association for linen, uniform and facility services.
Shepard is an Atlanta-based nationwide exhibition service provider that served as general contractor for the Clean Show in 2001 (New Orleans), 2005 (Orlando), 2007 (Las Vegas), 2011 (Las Vegas) and 2015 (Atlanta).
“After reviewing proposals from three qualified contractors, we felt that Shepard was the best fit for the Clean Show in New Orleans,” Ricci says. “Its experience with previous Clean Shows, and its unique concierge program that gives individual attention to the needs of each exhibitor are definitely a plus.”
Exhibit booth sales for Clean 2019 will open in late spring. Clean 2017 in Las Vegas drew 481 exhibiting companies, and more than 11,000 people, from around the world.
Officially titled the World Educational Congress for Laundering and Drycleaning, the biennial Clean Show is a premier exhibition for equipment, products, supplies and services for all segments of the textile care industry, and is one of the country’s top 200 trade shows.
The top executive of each of the five Clean Show sponsoring associations comprise the Clean Executive Committee, which sets policy for the show. In addition to TRSA, sponsors are Association for Linen Management, Coin Laundry Association, Drycleaning and Laundry Institute, and Textile Care Allied Trades Association.
