CLEAN SHOW SELECTS GES AS OFFICIAL CONTRACTOR
Global Experience Specialists, Inc. (GES) is the official services contractor selected by the Clean Executive Committee for its Clean® 2013 show in New Orleans, June 20-22, 2013.
Three companies submitted proposals for the show. “GES did our show in New Orleans in 2009 and did a great job. We look forward to working with them again in 2013,” said John Riddle, president of Riddle & Associates, the Clean Show’s management company.
The first Clean Show was held in Chicago in 1977. United Exposition Service Company was the official services contractor for the 1977 show and the subsequent shows. GES purchased United in 1993, and the company has continued its partnership with the Clean Show™ for many shows since. Headquartered in Las Vegas, GES is a leader in exhibition, event and retail marketing services and produces 3,000 exhibitions and events annually.
Officially titled the World Educational Congress for Laundering and Drycleaning, the biennial Clean Show is the world’s premier showcase for equipment, products, supplies and services for the textile care industry. The show attracts approximately 11,000 people across all segments of the industry, from single-owner, coin-operated laundry and drycleaning establishments to giant industrial and institutional laundries and textile rental companies. Over 400 companies exhibit their products and services at the show. The show’s education component offers seminars on business management, technology and environmental issues.
The Clean Show™ is sponsored jointly by five national industry associations: Association for Linen Management, Coin Laundry Association, Drycleaning & Laundry Institute, Textile Care Allied Trades Association, and Textile Rental Services Association of America.
