Early Exhibit Sales for the 2016 Cleaners Showcase are up 50%

Known for its top-notch, cutting-edge programs, the Cleaners Showcase will return to the Fort Worth Convention Center April 22-24, 2016 in Fort Worth, Texas. 
Exhibit sales have been open for those who attended the 2014 event, allowing them a head start to solidify their booths early. More than 100 retailers and suppliers displayed at the three-day trade exhibition and over 1,000 attended in 2014 in Fort Worth, Texas.  “Already engagement is high among retailers and suppliers alike for the 2016 Cleaners Showcase. The opening of exhibit sales to the industry-at-large will now enable first-time attendees and other interested exhibitors to reserve booth space for this game-changing event,” said Southwest Drycleaners Association President Brian Robertson, CGCP. 


The SDA Cleaners Showcase is distinguished in its ability to deliver the precision and personalization that members have come to expect from SDA conferences and meetings. 
“What makes the Cleaners Showcase unique is that it’s both a highly effective trade show and a unique opportunity for strategic exchange between retailers and suppliers with an eye toward the entire industry,” said Robertson.  
In January, SDA announced that the Exhibit Hall was selling fast.  Robertson noted that, “Following a highly-charged trade show in 2014, the Cleaners Showcase continues to build on that momentum, which is reflected in the fact that exhibit space was already 70 percent sold out – five months in advance of the show.”


Jess Culpepper with Culpepper Cleaners in San Antonio has attended for years and has been finding deals and learning new techniques at each show. “I always mark my calendar to attend the Cleaners Showcase. It just makes good business sense to make the trip. Absolutely the easiest and smartest way to view all the latest equipment, techniques, and trends in the industry. The educational opportunities are definitely beneficial as is the ability to share ideas with old friends and new acquaintances.”
SDA also emphasized early momentum in participation levels for the Educational Sessions. These 60-minute sessions arranged by SDA enable industry leaders to present their experience to new businesses and those who have been in the industry for years, resulting in thousands of business building exchanges.  “The Educational Sessions can truly turn innovative exchanges into real-world profits,” Robertson said. Six sessions will be available over Saturday and Sunday and a full schedule of speakers is available on the website.


Exhibit sales and registration for the Showcase continues through April at or call the SDA office at 512-873-8195
