Car Wash - Summer 2016 - (Page 54)

THIS YEAR'S THE CAR WASH SHOW in Nashville was one for the record books. In what would be the largest Show in 10 years, nearly 8,000 attendees walked the trade show floor to see the products and services from more than 400 exhibitors. It lived up to its reputation as the largest car wash convention and trade show. "Once again, the car wash industry has shown that The Car Wash Show is the event to attend," said ICA Chief Executive Officer Eric Wulf. "Across both our car wash and fast lube communities, we saw record numbers this year because the Show provides them with tremendous benefits and opportunities." This year marked the first year of a new partnership with the Automotive Oil Change Association. "This gives us an opportunity for our membership to really get more bang for their buck by coming to one show with a lot of activity and I'm looking forward to it," said AOCA President David Haney. "I'm excited." And this year marks the second year of partnership with Western Carwash Association, and the benefits are paying off in a big way. "Now what we have is an ability to focus all of our resources and our efforts on more local issues," said WCA President Jason Johnson. "So we've hired a group for advocacy in our legislature, we're able to have 54 chapter meetings and we're able to do more roadshows. We freed up all the staff time to attend to more local issues." Attendees at this year's Show experienced a variety of activities beyond the trade show floor, CAR WASH MAGAZINE | WWW.CARWASH.ORG | SUMMER 2016 http://WWW.CARWASH.ORG
