The Clean Show closed last week at the Georgia World Congress Center in Atlanta, Georgia. After a year-long postponement due to COVID-19, the excitement to meet, in-person, with industry peers and experience the latest technology and innovations could be felt throughout the four-day event, according to a news release.
“These industries have been through a lot these last two years,” said Greg Jira, Show Director for The Clean Show. “Clean’s goal is to serve as a global platform for knowledge and idea sharing so that companies may walk away with the tools they need to recover and ultimately, thrive.”
Exhibitors & Products
This year, the 216,400 sq. ft. exhibit hall (up over 21,000 sq. ft. from the last edition held in Atlanta) brought together 347 exhibiting companies from across the industry, showing the latest technology, machinery, equipment and other products and services for the commercial laundering, drycleaning, and textile care services industry.
“The Clean Show in Atlanta is over, and yes, we are overwhelmed. We are so delighted with the outcome of the show which was one that everybody had been anxiously waiting for,” shared long-time Clean exhibitor The Jensen Group via LinkedIn. “We are very satisfied with the contacts and leads from this year’s Clean Show. Our sales team has had many promising meetings with decision-makers and look forward to continuing the discussions in the near future.”
Clean Show’s exhibit hall brought industry professionals from across the Americas and beyond seeking the latest industry innovations. Visitors met new business partners, and experienced demonstrations of industry-leading machinery, equipment and technology live and in-action.
“We have had an amazing experience attending The Clean Show 2022, said Jason Mitchell, CEO of Premier Linen Services. “It was exciting seeing all of the new equipment on display from the various manufacturers, and checking out the advancements that are happening in our industry!”
In addition to the exhibit hall, visitors and exhibitors alike attended sessions addressing today‘s most pressing topics, with access to over 30 hours of complimentary education.
“So far, I’ve learned some great information about being a business owner in this industry,” said Ajani Cargle, attending Clean with his father representing their family’s business, Neighborhood Laundries in Chicago, Illinois. “I’m learning a lot about the daily operations and how to survive, scale and grow. This is probably the most advantageous aspect of an event I have experienced so far.”
