The Clean Show is the world’s largest convention for drycleaning professionals. Many exhibitors wait until the show to offer special deals and unveil their latest developments. The show runs every other year. Clean 2015, the previous show, attracted 11,264 attendees from all 50 U.S. states and 88 other countries. They all came to learn about and buy from 437 exhibiting companies who used 195,400 square feet of booth space or about three-and-a-half football fields. This show is ramping up to be even bigger: Clean 2017 exhibit sales topped 200,000 square feet in early October.

DLI members get $30 off the price of admission to Clean 2017 (Member price is $119, non-members pay $149). After May 31 the price is a flat $169 and registration must be completed at the registration area in front of the Clean Show floor.

Educational opportunities abound at the Clean Show. Representatives from companies who make literally everything you can think of related to drycleaning are on hand to answer questions and ease the decision-making process. If you are thinking of buying a new piece of equipment for your plant, there is no easier way to comparison shop. Besides having the most knowledgeable manufacturer and supplier representatives on hand, the show brings in thousands of drycleaners. Just ask around and you’ll find out what people like about this unit or that solvent.

DLI is hosting several educational sessions at the show. These don’t-miss sessions are designed to help members refocus, refresh, and revive their vision and sales. No company or organization produces better educational seminars than DLI.
