Celebrating 100 years of professional car washing will be the International Carwash Association, a non-profit trade group representing the retail and supply segments of the professional car wash industry. Hosting a special 100 Years of Car Washing Celebration at the House of Blues in Chicago on Mar. 31, the event will be held in partnership with The Car Wash Show 2014 taking place Mar. 31-Apr. 2 at McCormick Place.
In 1914, Frank McCormick and J.W. Hinkle opened their “Automobile Laundry” in Detroit, and were considered the first production line car wash in the world. Before this, car cleaning was mainly done by hand. “The 100 Years of Car Washing Celebration is an exciting addition to The Car Wash Show’s already incredible lineup of offerings,” said Eric Wulf, CEO, International Carwash Association. “We’re excited to celebrate what has become a truly global industry.”
The Car Wash Show, the largest car wash event in the world, is anticipated to bring in thousands of car wash professionals from to see the most current products and services available in over 117,000 square feet of exhibit space.
Over two dozen educational sessions and a Keynote Session with Daymond John and Robert Herjavec from the ABC hit TV series “Shark Tank,” include other highlights of the show.
