The Northeast Regional Carwash Convention (NRCC) 2015 show will feature education-packed seminars, informative business building sessions, innovative products on display and, of course, an opportunity to network with thousands of like-minded carwash industry professionals regarding your most challenging business needs. What else can you ask for under one roof?

And, the roof for NRCC 2015 is bigger compared to previous years. Aimed at holding more attendees and providing spacious areas of communication and trade show floor navigation, the convention has moved into the Atlantic City Convention Center. Dubbed as being “Bigger. Better. Be There!” by NRCC organizers, there is a lot of action crunched into the three-day event.

For more particulars about the events scheduled for this year at NRCC 2015, check out the Schedule of Events section in our Exhibit Product Guide (EPG), which also includes an exhibitor directory, a floor plan and much more. If you are attending the show and would like a free recent copy (or copies) of Professional Carwashing & Detailing or the Exhibit Product Guide, please stop by our Booth #300. You can also find our EPG here.

Furthermore, sign up at our booth to receive Professional Carwashing & Detailing and any of its online products, including our new Startup eNews Weekly, scheduled to begin in January 2016.

Focus on education

An overriding theme for any trade show, regardless of industry or size, is always education. For NRCC 2015, according to its chair David DuGoff, organizers have teamed up with top industry and business minds to offer a dynamic event once again.

But, planning is key to maximizing your time this year. Make sure to do your due diligence leading up to the show and develop a plan to ensure you are able to stop by the booths you want to visit most and attend the seminars you want to sit in on.

Attending industry trade shows is one way to ensure your marketplace awareness and your employees’ skill sets remain at top performance levels. In addition to reviewing new and popular products and equipment, exhibitors have plenty of technical, marketing and sales representatives ready to answer any and all of your questions to the best of their ability.

So, do you have a plan in place? And, have you discussed how best to spend your time at the show with any team members you are bringing along? Even if you wait until the show, it is never too late to start planning.

Maximizing your time and efforts with a detailed schedule helps to stay focused, keep track of appointments, outline a strategy and serve as a record for your files after the show has concluded.
