International carwashing

The International Carwash Association's (ICA) Car Wash Show Europe in Amsterdam will provide opportunities in networking, business, education and more for the evolving European carwash market.

Held in Amsterdam’s RAI convention center, the event will take place October 5-7, 2015. Carwash operators from around the world will lead sessions to help the industry continue moving forward.

Attendees will hear about various topics including information on hiring practices, the future of the automobile, enhancing the customer experience, driving loyalty, reducing costs, using social media and more.

ICA members can receive two free trade show passes good for three days. Premium and Century Club Members can take advantage of additional benefits.

Regional events

In addition to the ICA’s events, regional associations organize events on a more localized level. Both types offer different values to operators, and carwash professionals will benefit from connecting with peers in their own areas at regional events.

With so many associations across the country, events are held all the time. Check our calendar of events at www.carwash.com/events. Be sure to attend and meet the people around you who could be valuable resources to you and your business.

Plan ahead

Resources to support carwashes are available year-round. Check with ICA and your local association for the tools you need to succeed.

No matter how many trade shows you decide to attend, proper planning is essential to making the most of your time — and money — at these events. We hope the contacts and knowledge you have found help you and your business excel in the fast-paced carwash industry. Each year the industry improves, and every event and opportunity keep getting better and better.
