CHICAGO — When Brian Campbell was diagnosed with Williams Syndrome shortly after being born, doctors only gave him 10 years to live, but over 20 years later he was at The Car Wash Show™ being honored for his passion for the industry, according to an ICA blog.

At a young age, Brian became fascinated with carwashes; the movements and colors put a smile on his face. Since 1993, a group of carwash owners has been paying for his family to travel to The Car Wash Show™.

Every year he enjoys walking the tradeshow floor, and is as knowledgeable, if not more so, than many of the people manning the booths.

His passion has inspired the carwash industry, and because of that passion, starting in 2015, the ICA will present one exhibiting company the “Brian Campbell People’s Choice Booth Award.”
