The Northeast Regional Carwash Convention (NRCC) brings together thousands of carwash professionals and interested investors annually. This year, taking place at the Atlantic City Convention Center from Oct. 1-3, organizers were once again obviously working hard with planning and development leading up to the NRCC 2018 event. The result is a Schedule of Events that is packed with something for every attendee.
Since its first NRCC event, held in Newport, Rhode Island, in 1989, the five member associations that organize and plan this show have built on the previous years’ successes. With almost three decades of building, the event has grown into a national draw with high attendance. In fact, high interest in the show recently caused organizers to switch to a larger venue to better accommodate exhibitors as well as attendees.
According to www.nrccshow.com, “Attendance (including exhibitors) has ranged from 500 (in the early years) to as many as 1,700. The show floor space is typically 60,000 square feet with more than 300 exhibit booths in [recent years]. The educational programming and number of exhibits have consistently grown. Educational seminars and keynote speakers have developed and are highly professional.”
As noted in this Exhibit Product Guide’s Q&A with NRCC 2018 Chairman Doug Rieck, while the trade show remains very important to all, the member associations have “consistently worked on and are proud of our educational sessions.”
Whether it’s the Welcome Reception at The Water Club on Tuesday, Oct. 2nd from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. or The State of the Industry seminar on Wednesday, Oct. 3rd from 8 a.m. to 9:15 a.m., planning ahead is vital this year.
