The Clean Show Unveils Updated Mission Statement

The Clean executive committee has unveiled a brand new mission statement for the Clean Show. It states “The Clean Show provides a global forum for bringing together garment and textile care and services professionals for the purpose of sharing ideas, business practices and the latest products, services and innovations as well as raising the level of professionalism in the industry.” This updated mission statement is the result of a thorough review of all aspects of the Show held in meetings of the Clean executive committee this year.
Members of the Clean committee believe this new mission statement reflects and promotes the exchange of new ideas before, during, and after the Clean Show, a major value of the Show. In keeping with the spirit of this statement, they have already relaxed certain rules regarding the convening of affiliate groups during trade show hours. In the past, meetings were restricted to hours outside education and exhibit hours, but now exhibiting companies and industry associations can schedule their sales, distributor or group meetings during educational sessions or between the hours of noon and 2:00 p.m.
Clean Show Chair David Cotter, CEO of the Textile Care Allied Trades Association, supports the new direction the Clean Show is headed. “We believe the new rules will support an environment where exhibitors and attendees can conduct business and meet with others more freely.”
The Clean Show will take place June 20-22, 2013, in the New Orleans Morial Convention Center. Over 400 companies offering virtually every product and service used in the textile care industry are seen at the world’s largest trade show for laundry, drycleaning and textile services.
The Clean Executive Committee is composed of the five sponsoring associations, all national industry associations: Association for Linen Management, Coin Laundry Association, Drycleaning & Laundry Institute, Textile Care Allied Trades Association, and the Textile Rental Services Association.
