National Clothesline
The run-up to Clean ’17 is beginning
Exhibit sales are underway for the next year’s edition of the biennial show which will be held
in Las Vegas, NV, June 5-8.
Booth assignments are made on a first-come, first-served basis, so getting a choice location
means getting signed up early. A good portion of the floor space was already claimed by major
exhibitors as of mid-July but plenty of booth spaces remain. The floor plans and other
information for exhibitors is available on the Clean Show website,
Contracting early also gives exhibitors longer exposure with a listing on the Clean Show
At the last Clean Show, held in Atlanta, GA, in 2015 more than 430 companies exhibited. The
show’s 11,264 attendees represented all 50 states in the U.S. plus 88 other countries.
“Early indications from our Clean 2015 exhibitors are that Clean 2017 will be great,” said John
Riddle, president of Riddle & Associates, the show’s management company. “The Clean Show is
where the industry comes together and Las Vegas is always a popular destination.”
Indeed, this will be the sixth time that Las Vegas provided the venue for the show. The last
show there in 2011 was approximately the same in size and attendance as the Atlanta show.
While companies are signing up now, attendees will have to wait until next month to claim
their spot. Registration and hotel information will be released in September, Clean Show
organizers said. That information, too, will be available on the show’s website. The registration
fee for attendees includes entrance to the exhibit hall for the entire four-day run of the show
and all educational sessions offered by the five sponsoring trade associations.
Sponsors include the Drycleaning & Laundry Institute, the Textile Care Allied Trades
Association, the Coin Laundry Association, the Association for Linen Management, and the
Textile Rental Services Association of America. Each association designates a headquarters hotel
so attendees can stay with others from their particular industry segment.
