But, where can carwash operators and owners look for value while at the Las Vegas Convention Center from April 26-28? The answer is: everywhere. Attendees will be surrounded by ways to make their businesses better.

The expansive trade show floor, featuring new product innovations, equipment, services and much more almost 160,000 square feet, is reason enough to attend this unique event. However, when mixing in the networking potential of over 8,000 like-minded carwash professionals as well as the over 70 educational sessions planned before and during show hours, it is clear to see that there is “something for everyone,” as noted by ICA, and value when attending is a theme that is linked throughout The Car Wash Show.
