Equipment Marketers‘ 23rd annual Commercial Laundry Trade Show and Service Seminar was held May 5 at the company’s headquarters in Cherry Hill, N.J. It was a record-setting event, with nearly 350 laundry owners and potential investors in attendance.
The theme of this year’s show was “The Laundry Cabaret,” and the show appropriately featured live entertainment – including cabaret acts, singers and aerial performers – as well as food and thousands of dollars in prizes, which were awarded throughout the day. In fact, one of the grand prize winners, who picked up a free washing machine at the show, went on to buy an additional 24 washers that day. Coincidentally, that individual’s father also was an Equipment Marketers customer who had opened his first laundromat 30 years ago.
With more than 25 vendors showcasing laundry-related products in the trade show area, six business management sessions and five service seminars running throughout day, the Equipment Marketers’ event has grown to become one of the mid-Atlantic region’s premier laundry distributor shows.
