The 26th Northeast Regional Carwash Convention (NRCC) took place October 5-7 at the Atlantic City Convention Center (ACCC). The event attracted 301 exhibits, up by 31 from the previous year, according to the show chairman, David DuGoff, and an all-time record. Attendance totaled 1,629.

At the Awards Luncheon on Tuesday, October 6, DuGoff asked the New York State Car Wash Association’s Mike Benmosche, last year’s Hall of Fame recipient, to help him induct the 2015 recipient, Walt Hartl of Hoffman Car Wash of Albany, NY. Hartl, a long-time NRCC board member, current New York State Car Wash Association president, and two-time NRCC Chairman, received the honor in a heart-felt tribute by Benmosche who has worked closely with him on the two shows they have co-chaired.

The 2016 NRCC is slated for September 19-21 at the Atlantic City Convention Center with the Borgata as the host hotel. The New England Carwash Association is the host and Ron Bousquet is the Chairman. For exhibitor information call (800) 868-8590 or visit www.nrccshow.com.
