NASHVILLE, Tenn. — The Car Wash Show 2019, presented by the International Carwash Association (ICA), has announced an enhanced program structure and expanded education lineup, offering all attendees an inclusive and immersive show experience, according to a press release.
The Car Wash Show 2019, set to stage in Nashville, Tennessee, from May 13-15, will present the largest trade show floor in the history of The Car Wash Show, giving attendees access to a larger collection of the industry’s top exhibitors, largest brands and emerging companies, the release continued.
A redesigned program provides attendees with expanded education offerings, ensuring attendees will experience a high-level and larger breadth of educational content in addition to valuable business workshops, the release noted.
Carwash and car care industry professionals who purchase the Premium Pass will enjoy three days of exclusive content with the Premium Education Program, which will take a deep dive into areas critical for business success, the release stated.
Each premium path will begin with an impact session, featuring a world-class speaker, which follows with the attendee’s choice of focused courses, the release continued.
The mix-and-match program structure allows attendees to create an experience that is customized for their business needs, the release noted.
The final day of the show completes the path with a Wrap-Up Workshop in the attendee’s chosen path, which is a facilitated, interactive discussion bringing it all together, giving attendees take-home, actionable steps to apply what they have learned to their business, the release added.
In addition to Basic and Premium Passes, the release continued, The Car Wash Show will introduce an all-new Member Experience, designed to provide attendees of any pass type with more opportunities to engage with peers to learn and draw from each other’s experiences through the new Peer Power Hours, which provide a source for solutions from peers on a range of topics selected by fellow members.
Other Member Experience features include exclusive trade show time, programming and VIP perks, the release noted.
“Peer Power Hours, part of the Member Experience, give attendees an opportunity to focus on attendee-driven discussions, roundtables and panels that cover a range of topics generated by their peers,” shared Claire Moore, chief content officer. “We felt there was a true benefit to providing a platform for attendees to share stories and ideas with like-minded business owners facing the same challenges and concerns. This exclusive experience will allow carwash leaders to form powerful networking relationships with peers that will go far beyond the trade show experience, and provide a mentoring resource year round.”
Members will also experience a members-only State of the Industry Breakfast & Keynote Address — Wednesday, May 15th at 8 a.m. — featuring best-selling author of “The Happiness Advantage and Big Potential,” and one of the world’s leading experts on happiness and success, Shawn Achor.
