Got Plans? Updated our industry events page last night

We have updated our calendar of events and there’s a LOT going on starting in January. A new event we’re planning on attending is the ICE (International Cleaning Experts) Expo, January 30-31 in Las Vegas. It’s a little different market – carpet cleaners, janitorial, restoration and auto detailers all under one roof. Even if you don’t offer any of these services, I’ve found a lot of the information given at these events crosses over across all cleaning markets. Best of all, the event is FREE if you sign up by December 31, and hotel rooms are only $55 a night. Plus, it’s Vegas baby!

IWCA will be in Memphis in February. Hope to meet some of you there. We are planning to have a booth this year.

Finally, the other one I’m hoping to make is the Northeast Pressure Washing Seminar and Educational Event, March 7-9 in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania. This year, three pressure washing event power houses – Jack Kramer (of the Pressure Washing Seminar), Tom Vogel (ACR Products), and PWRA’s very own Thad Eckhoff ('nuff said) – have teamed up to put this annual Northeast favorite together.

Of course, it’s never too early to start planning for the year’s biggest, coolest event either – the PWRA National Convention in Nashville, August 8-9. If you can only make one event this year, that’s the one to attend!

You can read about these and a whole lot of other events on our site: Cleaning events, conventions, round tables, training and other get togethers | eClean Magazine

As always, it’s a GROWING list, so if I’ve missed something let me know.

Excellent Allison!!
The very first event we have penciled in here to attend for 2014 is Jack-Thad-Toms event come March. My wife and I have been to 2 each of Thads(Nola), Jacks(Albany events) and at least 6 of Toms(ACR RT’s which have totaled the most attendees’ for any Roundtables nation wide thru the years).

Anyone reading this should put this event as a must attend on their list. All 3 of those guys do excellent events on there own and always done up with class and transparency.

Anyone been to an ISSA/Interclean event?

I haven’t been in quite awhile (last one was probably 1997), but they are HUGE. The ones I went to also had major keynote speakers – i.e., William Bennett, Margaret Thatcher. It’s worth seeing. If you’re really shopping, I would recommend at least two days to walk the floor.
