The Northeast Regional Carwash Convention (NRCC) has partnered with Public Strategies Impact (PSI), a trade show management company, to run the annual event, according to Walt Hartl, New York State Car Wash Association (NYSCWA) president and the 2014 host association co-chairperson. “As a result of record-breaking vendor exhibits and growing show attendance, the board felt it was time to elevate the NRCC to the next level, but still keep our approachable, intimate feel. PSI can help us do just that,” said Hartl.

PSI is a government relations, public affairs, and association management firm of 20 based in Trenton, NJ. Patricia Brewer, associate director of meetings and convention management, and Laura Slomka, event manager, will spearhead the NRCC’s new management team.

The 2014 NRCC is scheduled for September 15-17 at the Trump Taj Mahal in Atlantic City. The event’s keynote speaker is Robert H. Benmosche, president and chief executive officer of American International Group (AIG).

The NRCC is an annual trade show that also includes educational programming for East Coast car wash owner/operators. The NRCC was founded in 1989 and is a consortium of five regional car wash associations: Car Wash Operators of New Jersey, Connecticut Carwash Association, Mid-Atlantic Carwash Association, New England Carwash Association, and the New York State Car Wash Association. The NRCC is the largest regional car wash trade show in the country and will be celebrating its 25th year in 2014.
