The Southwest Car Wash Association’s Annual Convention and Car Wash Expo for 2017 takes place in Arlington, TX, running from Sunday, February 26 through Tuesday, February 28. This year’s expo carries the tagline “Experience SCWA 2017.” Once again the venue for the show is the Arlington Convention Center, while the Sheraton Arlington Hotel acts as headquarter hotel for the event.

CEO Forum, the opening session on Sunday, features Davy Tyburski, aka “America’s Chief Profit Officer.” He will present ideas and strategies based on more than 20 years of experience in the business world, working with both large and small companies. His presentation is an ideal combination of case studies and proven techniques.

The keynote speaker during the General Session on Monday will be Emmy-Award winning journalist John Stossel, former ABC News correspondent and co-anchor of the newsmagazine program 20/20, and current host and commentator on Fox Business Network. Stossel began his career as a business-bashing consumer reporter calling for government regulation. But when he saw regulation fail, he began reporting on the things that free markets create: prosperity, innovation, choice, and freedom. His weekly program on Fox highlights current consumer issues with a libertarian viewpoint. Among other honors, Stossel has received 19 Emmy Awards and has been honored five times for excellence in consumer reporting by the National Press Club.

The educational program on Monday includes the ever-popular round table discussions and idea exchange sessions. On Tuesday, the Car Wash Acadamy presents several educational sessions covering diverse subjects, which offer no-nonsense business solutions, managing strategies, and innovative ideas.
