ATLANTIC CITY, NJ — The 23rd Northeast Regional Carwash Convention (NRCC) held Oct. 1-3 at the Trump Taj Mahal here boasted its largest show floor ever with 255 exhibitors, according to a press release.

The Oct. 6 release quoted Julie Stanton, the NRCC show facilitator, “I’m thrilled to report that we broke our record set back in 2010 with 255 booths sold this year. Our show floor was packed and our vendors and attendees were just thrilled.” The show floor attracted more than 1,300 attendees.

Robert Andre kicked off the show on Oct. 1 with a presentation called “Understand an Effective Equipment Maintenance Program’s Impact on Your Bottom Line.” Then, the Welcoming Reception was held on the 49th floor of the Taj Tower in the exclusive Signature Club.

Educational programming on Oct. 2 included a panel discussion with carwash owners, a compliance session with two labor lawyers and a keynote speech by Perry Powell. Powell is a neuromarketing and signage expert, and his speech stressed the importance of meeting the changing needs of customers.

The second day’s education was capped off with the annual awards program and an International Carwash Association update.

The final day of the show, Oct. 3, included seminars that covered new ideas for carwashers and marketing.
