THE SPRING ISSUE of CAR WASH Magazine is my favorite issue of the year.
It's the largest issue of the year, which means it's the richest issue in terms of content
depth and breadth. And, more people see this issue than any other issue during the year.
That means we have more opportunities to share great stories.
But it's also my favorite because it coincides with The Car Wash Show. The energy around
preparing for the show is amazingly positive and incredibly exciting as we get ready for the
largest gathering of car wash professionals in the world. That energy spills into everything
else we work on during this time of year.
The show brings the car wash industry together to learn, to share ideas and to see the
latest equipment from suppliers. There are few events where you are able to capture the
essence of what is so important to the people in this industry - our community.
This year, International Carwash Association is expanding that sense of community
through an increase in the number events for car wash professionals. Adding a Sporting
Retreat, a tour of car washes and historical sites in Europe, a Supplier Summit, and the
innovative "un-trade show" for car wash professionals called Splash! 2016, creates a portfolio
of events, both large and small, to help you connect in meaningful ways.
You can read more about the events later in this issue of CAR WASH Magazine, and
online at carwash.org.
I'm excited for the new events. The opportunity to bring people together is an energizing
experience for those involved and brings great energy that I think will continue to positively
contribute to all that our community can achieve.
Soon, I may have stiffer competition for picking my favorite issue of CAR WASH Magazine.
