The Southwest Car Wash Association’s 2011 Convention and Car Wash Expo takes place in Arlington, TX. The first big car wash show of the year, the event runs from Sunday, March 6 through Tuesday, March 8. The Arlington Convention Center is once again the venue for the show and the Sheraton Arlington the headquarter hotel.

The programming includes the by now familiar CEO Forum, which will offer insights into the challenging 2011 business climate and how it will impact the car wash business. The Car Wash Investing Basics presentation has been expanded and will include discussions of the various car wash models, benchmarks, and other basic operational and investing information.

No convention is complete without its social events, and on this score the organizers do not disappoint. Following the SCWA Reception and Buffet on Monday evening, conferees move on to Texas Ranger Stadium, site of the 2010 World Series, to continue networking and take in a facility tour that includes the locker room and dugouts.
