The Car Wash Show™ 2013, presented by the International Carwash Association®, drew 5,900 industry professionals to Las Vegas. The event took place April 22-24. More than 25 hours of educational sessions were on offer, and conferees had a total of 15 hours to visit with 305 exhibiting companies on the tradeshow floor.

The New Investor Seminar, held just before the start of The Car Wash Show, saw more than twice the number of potential investors attend compared to last year.

During the general session, which featured keynote speaker Magic Johnson, the ICA inducted Mark Thorsby, its executive director from 1995 to 2009, into the Car Wash Hall of Fame — the professional car wash industry’s highest honor.

In 2014, The Car Wash Show will take place at McCormick Place in Chicago, March 31 – April 2. The event will return to Las Vegas in 2015.
