Speaker Line-Up Announced for SDA Cleaners Showcase 2020

Some of the drycleaning industry’s top speakers have been enlisted to take part in the Southwest Drycleaners Association’s (SDA) upcoming Cleaners Showcase. The event will be held at the Fort Worth Convention Center, April 16-18, with partners the Coin Laundry Association and CINET, the producers of the USA Best Practices Award.

“We designed the 2020 Showcase to give all cleaners the ideas and tools to diversify and increase revenue, manage their businesses more efficiently, and market effectively,” noted SDA President Craig Campbell. “Our industry is a competitive one, and exposing our members to these national experts gives them a leg up in their day-to-day efforts to provide their customers with the best service possible.”

The Cleaners Showcase education sessions are open to all registered attendees and are included in the show’s registration fee, which is free to members of the SDA and CLA. Registration is only $35 for pre-registered nonmembers ($50 on-site).

Topping that list of national experts will be millennial expert Jeff Butler as the Keynote Speaker. Jeff is a TEDx speaker on workplace dynamics issues and has addressed more than 100 organizations internationally such as Google, Amazon, LinkedIn, and Wells Fargo. In addition to having founded three profitable companies by the age of 27, he has published two books, including ‘The Authentic Workplace; How Authenticity is Creating the Workplace of Tomorrow’.
