The Clean Show brings together leading companies from across the textile care services industry. Attendance at the show typically exceeds 10,000 and includes owners and managers with decision making authority. ALM, along with four other associations, is proud to be a sponsor of the show. As such, we provide educational content and host an exclusive member networking event.
For industry operators, The Clean Show provides access on the latest products, trends, and strategies and is a key component in successful bottom lines. For suppliers, The Clean Show provides the largest audience under one roof in the United States. There is no better place to showcase your products and equipment.
The 2019 Clean Show will be at the New Orleans Ernest W. Morial Convention Center. Conference registration includes participation in education programming throughout the conference. Attendees staying at ALM's conference hotel, The Royal Sonesta, will have free access to a shuttle between the hotel and the convention center, providing services in the morning and afternoon.
